Carrying capacity and a smooth ride combined with even more comfort for you? Sounds impossible? Think again. Our Gator TX Turf delivers both! A strong engine and payload capacity of 454 kg transform this model into a real workhorse whilst providing a gentle touch to preserve the grass.
One type of flotation tyre is available for the Gator™ TX Turf:
All tyres offer a wide profile and are designed to be inflated at a low psi.
NOTE: John Deere recommends that all four or six (6x4 Gator™ models) tyres be the same. Although the wheel and tyre sizes remain the same, current tyres should not be mixed with existing tyres. The existing tyres will remain available to service existing Gators.

The Gator™ TX Turf is powered by a 401-cc, single-cylinder, four-cycle gas engine. It is rated 8.0 kW (10.9 hp) at 3250 rpm using standard 97/68/EC.
On the Gator™ TX Turf, power is transmitted from the engine through a continuously variable clutch system to a transaxle and finally to the rear axle.
Key elements of the drive system are as follows:
Variable speed drive
The variable-speed drive consists of two clutches connected by a drive belt:
Adjusts speed to the load to avoid bogging down when going up a hill or through challenging conditions because the wrong gear was selected.
Clutches are tuned to provide engine braking when going downhill if the throttle remains engaged.
Here is how the variable-speed drive works:
The transaxle is fully enclosed and runs in oil for reliability.
The differential design reduces scuffing of the turf during turns because the inside wheels turn slower than the outside wheels (other vehicles that have a solid axle shaft must skid the inside wheel when making a turn).
Helical gears are used to reduce transmission noise.
The neutral start safety interlock is provided for the engine ignition system.
Heavy-duty rear-axle housings
Large, sealed bearings are located inside the housing for better protection. One-piece forged axles are splined for maximum strength:
