Precision-engineered drive system optimizes hauling, towing, and hill-climbing capabilities

Gator TH 6X4 drive systemGator TH 6X4 drive system

The Gator™ TH 6X4's power is transmitted from the transaxle to the center axle. The rear axle is driven by roller chains from the center axle.

 

1. High flotation tires
2. Transaxle
3. Chain drive
4.  Engine
5. Variable-speed drive

 

Key elements of the drive system are as follows:

Variable-speed drive

 

The variable-speed drive consists of two clutches connected by a drive belt:

  • Drive clutch is attached to and rotated by the engine.
  • Driven clutch is attached to and drives the transaxle.

Features include:

  • Infinite selection of speeds (0 km/h to 32 km/h [0 mph to 20 mph])
  • No shifting necessary as operator increases speed
  • Adjusts speed to the load to avoid bogging down when going up a hill or through challenging conditions because the wrong gear was selected
Variable-speed driveVariable-speed drive

 

1. Idle speed
2. Moderate speed
3. High speed
4. Drive clutch
5. Driven clutch

Here is how the variable-speed drive works:

  1. As the engine speed increases, the spring-loaded drive clutch is closed by weights being forced out by centrifugal force.
  2. As the drive clutch closes, the belt rides up to the largest diameter of the drive clutch and forces open the driven clutch.
  3. With the belt running in the smallest diameter of the driven clutch, the speed being transferred to the transaxle is increased.
  4. The driven clutch is designed to sense varying loads (inclines, mud, etc.) and constantly adjusts the drive speed upward or downward, so the engine rpm remains constant at constant throttle position.

Transaxle

 

The transaxle is fully enclosed and runs in oil for reliability.

Helical gears are used for quiet operation.

The 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:

  • Allows locking the rear drive wheels together
  • Provides increased traction in tough spots

The neutral start safety interlock is provided for the engine ignition system.

 

Bolt-on cast-aluminum rear axle housings provide an extremely strong supporting structure.

  • Large, sealed bearings are located inside the housing for better protection
  • Forged-splined shaft for increased torsional strength

Durable deluxe cargo box is spacious and allows for easy loading and unloading
