Live drive stands for a 2-plate clutch. The front clutch plate drives the pto and the hydraulic pump and the rear plate drives the transmission. Pressing the clutch pedal half way down will stop the tractor from moving, but the pto and the hydraulic pump are still operating. Pressing the pedal fully down will also stop the tractor. A non live drive clutch has only one clutch plate and only one stage at the clutch pedal. Pressing the pedal down will make the tractor, the pto and the hydraulic pump all stop at the same time.

Yes, as Ollek says, a 2-stage clutch system. I own a 1963 880D (non-livedrive single stage clutch) tractor that was fitted with a DB loader about 2 years after tractor was new. I purchased it a couple of years ago for my son & daughter-in-law to use to help them shift manure from their horse stables. My son drives the tractor and moans a lot because he drives the loader into the heap of manure then has to push on clutch and brakes to prevent rolling back, take tractor out of gear and then take his foot off the clutch again in order that the loader will lift. Once its lifted, he can then depress clutch, put tractor into reverse and take muck away! What a lot of hassle! If we had the livedrive version like your tractor, he could do the job much quicker as he wouldn't need to keep taking tractor out of gear to lift loader although he would still have to stop otherwise the tractor would smash into the stable.
