GT drives for lawn tractors use exclusive V-Motion™ technology, a proprietary design of the Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) system proven in motorcycles, snowmobiles, heavy equipment, and other applications. Unlike mechanical transmissions that lose momentum as they are move through gears, V-Motion™ eliminates the need to shift, and doesn’t require a clutch. It automatically adjusts speed to demand, delivering seamless power and acceleration as needed. Unlike hydrostatic drives, there are no seals or filters, no maintenance, and no affect from heat or cold.
V-Motion™ technology uses a lean, efficient design to deliver maximum power to cutting deck and drive wheels, making the most of engine power and reducing drive system temperature for less wear and longer life. Our transmissions use heavy-duty, maintenance-free belts that are built to handle extreme loads and acceleration in rugged conditions. Simple single-lever control makes operation easy. The transmission itself is protected by its Vault housing, a glass fiber reinforced composite case that resists impact, heat, cold, heavy loads and torque.
