So you have 6 motors? I haven't had a failure yet but I kind of like the ability to use a drill to run the one motor to use the hydraulic system manually.
Back in my engineering days I always remember that reliability goes down with more parts to fail. I know with hydraulics there are other things to fail but the 6 motors and wiring seem to me to have more chance to fail.
I guess if I had to make the decision, I would go hydraulic but then again I am biased because I already have hydraulic system..
