Best drive-train durability

Yamaha’s all-terrain vehicles (ATV) and side-by-side (SxS) vehicles have the most durable belt-driven drive train in the industry, according to a third-party study conducted by ADP Lightspeed, Salt Lake City, UT.

ADP Lightspeed performed the competitive comparison study of continuously variable transmission (CVT) belt components reported in warranty and non-warranty repair order records for 2007 to 2010 model year CVT belt-driven 4x4 ATVs with engines 400cc and above.

Yamaha’s Ultramatic® automatic transmission system features an exclusive centrifugal clutch that allows the drive belt to remain under constant tension providing a key point of durability, Yamaha says. In addition, an exclusive one-way sprag clutch not only aids durability but also provides the most natural-feeling, four-wheel engine braking for maximum traction and rider confidence, Yamaha says. This exclusive system is used in Yamaha’s Grizzly 700 ATV, Grizzly 550 ATV, Grizzly 450 ATV and Rhino 700 SxS vehicle.

Faster, cleaner raking

New Holland’s ProCart™ deluxe carted wheel rakes are designed for fast, big raking capacity, making them the professional haymaker’s choice. Their individual floating rake wheels and newly optimized raking angles provide cleaner raking and help form uniform, easy-to-bale windrows. Each rake wheel uses a compression spring and linkage pressure system that allows haymakers to finely adjust pressure to the crop and field conditions. The cart’s uncomplicated folding design doesn’t require a tractor with a hydraulic-floating valve. In fact, operators can rake on either side, turn over damp windrows, or select “V” raking with a simple turn of the hydraulic lock valves.

The new ProCart models include the eight-wheel 819 model that works up to 18’ wide, the 10-wheel 1022 model that works up to 21’ wide and the 12-wheel 1225 model that works up to 24’, 6” wide.
