The Gator™ TX Turf is powered by a 401-cc, single-cylinder, four-cycle gas engine. It is rated 8.0 kW (10.9 hp) at 3250 rpm using standard 97/68/EC.
One type of flotation tyre is available for the Gator™ TX Turf:
All tyres offer a wide profile and are designed to be inflated at a low psi.
|Cayman Turf, front pair (two 22x9.50-10 4PR)
Cayman Turf, rear pair (two 24x12.00-10 4PR)
NOTE: John Deere recommends that all four or six (6x4 Gator™ models) tyres be the same. Although the wheel and tyre sizes remain the same, current tyres should not be mixed with existing tyres. The existing tyres will remain available to service existing Gators.
NOTE: Shown with the optional front bumper, brush guard, front fender guard, and floor mat.
The control location and walk-through platform provide easy entry/exit for the operator and passenger.
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:
Adjusts speed to the load to avoid bogging down when going up a hill or through challenging conditions because the wrong gear was selected.
Clutches are tuned to provide engine braking when going downhill if the throttle remains engaged.
Here is how the variable-speed drive works:
The differential design reduces scuffing of the turf during turns because the inside wheels turn slower than the outside wheels (other vehicles that have a solid axle shaft must skid the inside wheel when making a turn).
Helical gears are used to reduce transmission noise.
The neutral start safety interlock is provided for the engine ignition system.
