Hydrostatic Drive / 4-speed Shuttling Drive / 3-Speed Gear Drive
Both offer an optional electric powerlift to let you raise, lower and hold attachments with the touch of a lever. Traction control transfers some power to the wheel with the best footing. Gives you complete control while turning. Won't scuff your newly trimmed lawn. Touch-O-Matic clutching on all models gives you foot controlled inching, so you can keep both hands
on the wheel. Synchro-balanced Briggs & Stratton engine on Sovereign reduces vibration. Electric key starting.
