It is my opinion that the Varidrive tractors were an attempt to get infinitely adjustable ground speed without going to a Hydro transmission. There are Sheave pulleys that move in and out to change the speed, sort of like the original Suburban tractors.

The variable drive on my old Suburban worked OK. But I also had an LTV11 lawn tractor whose varidrive never worked right. I never took it apart to figure it out, but I suspected that there was something binding one of the pulleys, keeping it from getting larger and smaller. I learned that the pulleys are hard to find and expensive.

I'm sure that the system on the GTV is heavier than the LTV, being it is intended for ground engagement equipment.

Love to see some pictures and more info on how the tractor runs!
