Make DARNED sure that hydro is GOOD before you go and buy it!
Go drive it and make sure that it has run for a good while and warmed up. Then put it through it's paces for a half hour or so to make sure the hydraulic oil is good and warm. Then see if you can pull it down using the brakes without the hydro slipping.
Even better would be if it could be kept in a heated shop overnight.
You DON'T want to find out later that the hydro is starting to go and you can only tell that when the oil is good and warm/hot.
If you have to put a hydro in, you will be looking at the better part of what you are looking at spending on the tractor in the first place...

- You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the industrious out of it.
-You don't multiply wealth by dividing it.
- Government cannot give anything to anybody that it doesn't first take from somebody else.
- Whenever somebody receives something without working for it, somebody else has to work for it without receiving.
- The worst thing that can happen to a nation is for half of the people to get the idea they don't have to work because somebody else will work for them, and the other half to get the idea that it does no good to work because they don't get to enjoy the fruits of their labor.

Full throttle, high range. Advance the hydro lever, you should be able to kill the engine.
Full throttle, low range. Advance the hydro lever. The hydrostat should by pass after pulling the engine down 2-300rpm
This is not the definitive shop test but it should tell you if the unit is on its last legs or not.
