Cool Looking for a few good CVT stories

We're thinking Hot Stove League time for lawn care enthusiasts. Our perspective skewed, admittedly, by our geographical location (north, way north, Minnesota north, although oddly enough for December the green green grass of autumn can still be seen in these parts - we're living on borrowed time on that score, that we know).

But back to the main point here: we -- General Transmissions -- would like to hear from owners of lawn tractors equipped with our continuously variable transmissions (CVTs). Specifically, we'd like to know what your experience has been like using the tractor. We're open to all points of view, good, bad, ugly, whatever. If you're interested, please send me a private message through the forum. I can tell you that the company's technical people are mightily interested in what you have to say, and so are the marketing people -- they're looking for a few good testimonials to talk about. If something strikes their interest, they would like to talk with the person or persons involved too.

The RS 800 and RT 400 transmissions are the ones in question. If you're not sure which one is in your tractor -- but you're sure it's made by General Transmissions -- that's okay. Just tell us the make and model of the tractor and we'll take it from there. A quick way to determine if it's a General Transmissions CVT is to look at the transmission housing: generally speaking, if it's painted black, it's a General Transmissions CVT.

I hope to hear from some of you.

Story-telling: that's what keeps the home fires burning during these long winter months!

I'm getting close to being able to buy historical plates for my Deere. Well, not quite there yet . Another 10 years and I could.
