Element V Automatic drives for lawn tractors use exclusive V-Motion™ technology, a proprietary design of the Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) system proven in motorcycles, snowmobiles, heavy equipment, and other applications. Unlike mechanical transmissions that lose momentum as they move through gears, V-Motion™ eliminates the need to shift, and doesn’t require a clutch. It automatically adjusts speed to demand, delivering seamless power and acceleration as needed. Unlike hydrostatic drives, there are no seals or filters, no maintenance, and no affect from heat or cold.
V-Motion™ technology uses a lean, efficient design to deliver maximum power to cutting deck and drive wheels, making the most of engine power and reducing drive system temperature for less wear and longer life. Element V™ transmissions use heavy-duty, maintenance-free belts that are built to handle extreme loads and acceleration in rugged conditions. Simple single-lever control makes operation easy. The transmission itself is protected by its Vault housing, a glass fiber reinforced composite case that resists impact, heat, cold, heavy loads and torque.
