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

The Gator™ HPX Utility Vehicle has a precision-engineered drivetrain system to better utilize engine power and to improve acceleration, hauling, towing, and hill-climbing capabilities. Power is transmitted from the engine through a continuously variable clutch system to the transaxle.

Key elements of the drive system include:

  • Transaxle with high and low ranges, neutral, reverse, and park
  • Engine
  • Variable-speed drive
Variable-speed drive
Variable-speed drive Variable-speed drive

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

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

How 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 drive speed upward or downward so that engine rpm remains constant at constant throttle position.
  5. Start in gear, neutral, or park position for quick starting. The service brake must be engaged to start when in gear or neutral.
  6. To shift out of park, the service brake must be pressed to release the parking solenoid. An audible click will be heard and then the vehicle can shift out of park into the desired gear.

  • Two-speed, fully enclosed, oil bath transaxle allows superior pulling ability
    • Low range is 0 km/h to 19 km/h (0 mph to 12 mph)
    • High range is 0 km/h to 40 km/h (0 mph to 25 mph)
  • MFWD and rear transaxle are protected by skid plates
