Featuring CVT

The CVT is a mechanical transmission providing all the rugged power the job demands, with a hydrostatic assist for smooth, easy operation. By automatically adjusting output torque, it provides maximum power to the ground — without manually shifting gears. And by maintaining a constant engine speed, it improves fuel economy, reduces engine wear and extends transmission life.
