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.

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.

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