Power is transmitted from the engine, through a continuously variable clutch system, to a transaxle. Power is transmitted from the transaxle directly to the rear axle.
Key elements of the drive system are as follows:
The variable-speed drive consists of two clutches connected by a drive belt:
How the variable-speed drive works:
The transaxle is fully enclosed and runs in oil for reliability.
Helical gears are used for quiet operation.
Differential design reduces scuffing of the turf during turns because the inside wheels turn slower than the outside wheels (vehicles that have a solid axle shaft must skid the inside wheel when making a turn).
Traction assist (differential lock) is built into the transaxle:
A neutral start safety interlock is provided for the engine ignition system.
Heavy-duty rear axle housings
Gator TS 4X2
Bolt-on cast-aluminum rear-axle housings provide an extremely strong supporting structure.
Gator TX 4X2
One-piece forged axles are splined for maximum strength.
NOTE: The TS 4X2 is not sold in Australia/New Zealand.
The strong, 16-gauge cargo box allows hauling heavy and bulky cargo.
The load of the box is placed directly over the rear wheels, where the load is in the most stable position. The 25-in. load height for the Gator™ TS allows easy loading and unloading of material.

227 kg (500 lb)
The cargo box can be manually tilted up to allow access to the drive system or to assist in cleaning out the box.
Box dump angles (degrees)
The tailgate can be opened or removed for easier cleanout and to carry longer items.
The box design includes tie-downs on load guard and box sides.
CAUTION: Carrying extra-long cargo that extends beyond the box can adversely affect stability.
Numerous features offer the operator and passenger a comfortable ride and provide many operating conveniences.
The control location and walk-through platform provide easy entry/exit for the operator and passenger.
