GT-driven lawn tractor takes the hill!

See how a lawn tractor equipped with a General Transmissions Element V automatic -- a continuously variable transmission, in other words -- charges up hills like a champ.

Thank you for the share!

How would I find a list of Brands and Models that incorporate these transmissions? Or anyone else that wanted to make sure that's what they were getting when purchasing their next lawn tractor?

Thanks for your site support and sponsorship!

Where to find GT's transmissions

Good question - and I hope to have a good answer soon. We're compiling a list of the various makes and models of lawn tractors equipped with General Transmissions Element V automatics (CVTs). I'll post the list as soon as we have it.

After doing some digging around, I've come up with a partial list of specific lawn tractors equipped with General Transmissions continuously variable transmissions (CVTs). The manufacturers often refer to them as "automatics." The list to date includes the following makes and models: Poulan Pro 20VA46; Poulan Pro 960420185; Poulan Pro 960460080; Craftsman Fast Turn Tight 20390; Craftsman Fast Turn Tight 20391; Craftsman 25581; and the John Deere D105 - BG 20873. I'll continue to add more tractors as I find them; as you may guess, the manufacturers don't always tell General Transmissions exactly which products they're equipping with their transmissions!

Now I really like this, I'm not a huge fan of CVT based transmissions in cars.. But it is literally perfect for an application such as a lawn tractor. I cant wait to see how one of these drives.
