The E100 Lawn Tractor features an automatic transmission. Just like with your car, you simply set your direction with the fender-mounted hand control and press your pedal to select your speed.
The automatic transmission allows the operator to easily choose the desired forward or reverse travel speed by simply depressing a single foot pedal; this is similar to the way the driver of an automobile with automatic transmission changes speed when depressing the accelerator.
Whether a slow speed for trimming or faster speed for open-area mowing is desired, the operator can easily adjust by how far the foot pedal is depressed.
With the brake pedal depressed and the forward/reverse lever in the center position, the engine can be started. Once the engine is started, it is not necessary to use the brake pedal when selecting forward or reverse. Simply move the forward/reverse lever to select travel direction, and then press the automatic foot pedal to choose from an infinite number of travel speeds.
With the automatic speed control pedal, the operator can choose from an infinite number of speeds forward or reverse:
Forward: 0 to 5.5 mph (0 to 8.9 km/h)
Reverse: 0 to 3.2 mph (0 to 5.1 km/h)
The contoured dash has clean, attractive styling:

The parking brake control is conveniently located on the tractor pedestal for easy access. It holds the brake pedal securely in the locked position.MANUAL POWER TAKE-OFF (PTO)
