The Gator© TX 4X2 is powered by an 11.6-kW (15.5-hp)*, 675-cc (41.2-cu in.), V-twin, four-cycle gas engine.


*The engine horsepower information is provided by the engine manufacturer to be used for comparison purposes only. The actual operating horsepower will be less.


The model year 2015 TX (49 state) and beyond receives evaporative emissions components to meet Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Clean Air Act requirements.

Engine features

This engine has several performance and reliability features:

  • Overhead valve design for greater efficiency and fuel economy
  • Full-pressure lubrication system
    • Oil filter is standard on the Gator TX 4X2 engine
  • Replaceable single-element air cleaner with remote intake
  • Large-capacity spark-arresting muffler
  • Low fuel consumption and large 18.9 L (5 U.S. gal.) fuel tank;
    fuel consumption at half load and average speed is as follows:
    • Gator TX 4X2: 1.3 L/hr (0.35 U.S. gph)
  • EPA compliant

Power is transmitted from the engine, through a continuously variable clutch system, to a transaxle. Power is transmitted from the transaxle directly 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:

  • Drive clutch is attached to and rotated by the engine.
  • Driven clutch is attached to and drives the transaxle.

Features include:

  • Infinite selection of speeds (0 km/h to 32 km/h [0 mph to 20 mph])
  • No shifting necessary as operator increases speed
  • Adjusts speed to the load to avoid bogging down when going up a hill or through challenging conditions because the wrong gear was selected
Variable-speed drive Variable-speed drive

How the variable-speed drive works:

  1. As the engine speed increases, the spring-loaded drive clutch is closed by weights being forced out by centrifugal force.
  2. As the drive clutch closes, the belt rides up to the largest diameter of the drive clutch and forces open the driven clutch.
  3. With the belt running in the smallest diameter of the driven clutch, the speed being transferred to the transaxle is increased.
  4. The driven clutch is designed to sense varying loads (inclines, mud, etc.) and constantly adjusts the drive speed upward or downward, so the engine rpm remains constant at constant throttle position.



The transaxle is fully enclosed and runs in oil for reliability.


Helical gears are used for quiet operation.


Differential design reduces scuffing of the turf during turns because the inside wheels turn slower than the outside wheels (vehicles that have a solid axle shaft must skid the inside wheel when making a turn).


Traction assist (differential lock) is built into the transaxle:

  • Allows locking the rear drive wheels together
  • Provides increased traction in tough spots

A neutral start safety interlock is provided for the engine ignition system.


Heavy-duty rear axle housings


One-piece forged axles are splined for maximum strength.

  • Large, sealed bearings for better protection and load-carrying capabilities
  • Forged-splined shaft for increased torsional strength
  • Nodular cast-iron housing for increased durability

Hydraulic disc brakes Hydraulic disc brakes
  • Four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes
  • Braided stainless-steel brake lines with banjo fittings for increased durability
  • Optional hand-lever-operated mechanical park brake system
  • Integral cast-iron rotors with wheel hubs for extended life
  • Automotive-style dual-circuit master cylinder with a see-through reservoir
  • Larger front and rear brake calipers with sintered metallic brake pads
  • Smooth-feeling engagement

Automotive-type rack and pinion steering features include:

  • Smooth, responsive operation
  • Tight turning circle for excellent maneuverability
    • 2.74 m (9 ft) for Gator© TX 4X2
  • Completely sealed for long life
Front suspension
Automotive-type rack and pinion steering Automotive-type rack and pinion steering

Fully independent, single A-arm suspension features include:

  • 127 mm (5 in.) of total travel for better off-road control
  • Spring-over-shock dampening
  • Cast nodular iron 25-mm (1-in.) diameter spindles
  • Automotive-type maintenance-free rubber torsional pivots for long life and quiet operation

The semi-independent coil over shock (COS) rear suspension system provides a softer ride.

Stable design Stable design

A low center of gravity gives excellent stability.


The cargo-box load is centered over the rear wheels for balanced weight distribution.

(B) Turf tires (B) Turf tires

Four types of flotation tires are available for the Gator© TX 4X2:

  • (A) AT (all terrain) tires
  • (B) Turf tires

Product attributes:

  • Both options, turf and AT, are 4-ply rated, and have an enhanced blend of material and more content that yields significantly more useful life
  • These tread patterns give a more aggressive showroom appeal
  • Each tire combines puncture resistance with a tread designed for maximum traction and performance


All tires offer a wide profile and are designed to be inflated at a low psi.

  • Provides good flotation and traction in mud, sand, and other wet or soft areas
  • Flexes over bumps and ruts for a smoother, more comfortable ride
  • Minimizes ground compaction to save turf and prevent ruts in soft ground

Turf, front (two 22x9.50-10 4PR)

Turf, rear (two 24x12.00-10 4PR)



NOTE: John Deere recommends that all four or six (6x4 Gator© models) tires be the same. Although the wheel and tire sizes remain the same, current tires should not be mixed with existing tires. The existing tires will remain available to service existing Gator utility vehicles.
