Watch “How the MTD Varidrive system works” on YouTube

Sometimes called a variable or hydrostatic drive,the vari-drive uses two main belts to feed motion from the engine pully to the rear axle transmission.Under the seat,remove the battery to access the main transmission pully and vari-idler belts.
On my Yard Works riding lawn tractor,which I’m led to believe is a mass produced assembly,sold to many company names.There are variasions in design but it’s all basically similar.
This is also called AutoDrive in the manual.
At the rear axle is a sliding double pully on one shaft,creating difference in belt tension,which changes the speed.
