Hydrostatic transmissions are usually offered on lawn, lawn and garden, garden and compact tractors; they may be standard with some brands and models. Hydrostatic transmissions can be controlled by a hand lever, or by one or two foot pedals.
Mowers mostly use two types of transmissions – gear driven and hydro-static. The gear-driven type is very basic, the common manual lawn tractor transmission (the manual type usually called a gearbox) will have 5 forward gears and one reverse.
The splitter is easy to use: while accelerating, you pre-select the next gear using the splitter. As soon as you release the accelerator and press the clutch, the gear will change – no need to move the gearstick.
Inside the transmission, an input shaft is connected with the engine, which turns the shaft; while an output shaft sends its spinning motion toward the vehicle`s wheels to turn them. The input shaft`s power drives a set of gears, called the countershaft gears.
The 8R and 8RT Series Tractors utilize a field-proven, 16-speed automatic PowerShift transmission (PST) which is available on all models except the 8360R and 8360RT models.

The gearbox in a car works by transferring power from the engine to drive the wheels by employing a set of gears that can be shifted to change the speed and torque. The gears are arranged in different patterns to offer different speeds while maintaining the engine performance.
The gearbox in a car is a component that enables the torque to change or changes the rpm speed of the engine. The input shaft connects to the engine on one side, and the gearbox on the other. The output shaft produces a certain torque provided by the different gear ratios present in the gearbox.
