Speeds Up To 7 MPH

Dual ZT-2800 transaxles utilize all-metal internal gears for long life and deliver smooth, infinitely variable speed and bi-directional control. Power comes from a 10 cc variable-displacement, seven-piston pump and a 16 cc fixed-displacement, seven-piston motor in each transaxle. Cooling fans help keep operating temperatures lower.
