POWERED BY 18.5-HP*, 0.854-L (854-CM3), THREE-CYLINDER, LIQUID-COOLED, FOUR-CYCLE DIESEL ENGINE
Powered by a 18.5-hp*, 0.854-L (854-cm3), three-cylinder, liquid-cooled, four-cycle diesel engine, the utility vehicle produces 4.56 kg/m (33 lb-ft) of torque. NOTE: 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 engine offers the following performance and reliability features:
Overhead valve design for greater efficiency and fuel economy
Full-pressure lubrication system with replaceable oil filter
Dry replaceable single-element air cleaner with remote intake
Indirect injection diesel with glow plugs, ensuring fast starts in cold temperatures
Spark-arresting muffler (optional)
Dual radiator system for additional cooling capacity
Deaeration tank that decreases service time and ensures coolant is free from trapped air
20-L (5.3-gal.) fuel tank capacity (diesel and JP-8 fuel compatible)

Dual radiator system
Two radiators
One under the seat
One under the hood
Overflow bottle added under the hood
Single under-hood fill point for entire cooling system
Increases vehicle cooling capacity by 30 percent to compensate for the large displacement engine
Decreased occurrence of cooling system vapor lock
Effect achieved by moving the front radiator to a high point in the system and having an overflow bottle

Cooling system access
To access the cooling system and under the hood:
Unclip the litter carrier pins on both sides of the hood
No tools required

PRECISION-ENGINEERED DRIVE SYSTEM
The M-Gator A1's power is transmitted from the transaxle to the center axle. The rear axle is driven by roller chains from the center axle. Key elements of the drive system are as follows:

Variable-speed drive Consists of two clutches and a drive belt: drive clutch is attached to the engine; driven clutch is attached to the transaxle. Features include:
Infinite selection of speeds0 km/h to 32 km/h (0 mph to 20 mph)
No shifting necessary as the operator increases speed
Adjusts speed to the load to avoid being bogged down when going uphill or through challenging conditions because the wrong gear was se selected. 5 speeds
1. Idle speed
2. Moderate speed
3. High speed
4. Drive clutch
5. Driven clutch

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

Transaxle
The transaxle is fully enclosed and runs in oil for reliability.
Helical gears are used for quiet operation.
The 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 on 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.
Bolt-on cast-aluminum rear axle housings provide an extremely strong supporting structure.
Large, sealed bearings located inside the housing for better protection
Forged-splined shaft for increased torsional strength

OPERATOR PROTECTION SYSTEM (OPS) AND FRONT LITTER CARRIER
Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) certified for rollover protection
Can be folded down into the cargo box for transport on aircraft carriers and ships
Minimal tools required to fold down the OPS
First OPS of its kind on a utility vehicle
Lap belts provided for driver and passenger
