what is the difference between Automatic transmission and hydrostatic transmission ?

D105 42 in. 17.5 HP Gas Automatic Lawn Tractor is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good. The lawn tractor was delivered as... So far so good. The lawn tractor was delivered as specified earlier than expected. Time will tell but so far all is good. The whole white glove delivery was a sham (guy literally just took it off the truck and left) but aside from that no complaints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mower at a great price. I was dead... Great mower at a great price. I was dead set on getting the Cub Cadet, but when I learned that the JD was available for the same price and had white clove service, the deal was done. This machine cuts very well on hilly terrain. I just wish it could reverse without having to cut the blade rotation.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk I brought this mower April 2017 9 months later it stopped moving called home depot they said sorry you only have 30 days to return it.so i called john deere they picked it up put drive belt back on charged me 180 bucks. They said sticks caused it to come off. The sticks they showed me 1/2''x1'' really. JUNK . So if you have trees in your yard dont buy this mower.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flame out muffler I started the mower and flames came out of the muffler so I started to mow, and after a few passes the muffler started to make some weird noises, I ignore them and kept mowing. Then the muffler started to melt, the hot liquid fell onto the tire and melted it. Now I can't mow!!
