    Manual trans ATVs

    Several years back, I traded my Arctic Cat 400 for an Arctic Cat 700 EFI Special Edition... worst mistake I ever made. My 400 was a manual shift with 3 ranges (High, Low, Super Low), had soft suspension that rode like a Cadillac, and was light enough to be nimble/manageable. I once rolled it...

    Integrated ZTR transaxles

    I've been comparing ZTR transaxles for a build. So far, I've found two options... the Hydro-Gear 5400 and Parker HTG. I like the Hydro-Gear for its hi/lo range final drive, but it's only rated for a 2,000lb GVWR. The Parker is rated for 2,500lb GVWR, but it lacks the two-range final drive...
