[img]/club2//attach/RayH/Varidrive1.gif'[/img] Here is a pic. of my 212 with the VariDrive brake...I bought this tractor in 1991 from a gent. here in Dallas. At the time, I had no idea what the tractor was (A-C), but I sure liked how it was built. I have no idea who installed the brake, but, it sure helps in shifting the vari-speed.

This Pic. shows a little more detail.

And a little more detail. Ray

What actuates the Vbrake(clutch/brake linkage?) & what is the brake surface made from? Does it just rub against the inner rear pulley to help stop the spin? My biggest dislike for my Vario is that shifting gears usually means pulling the lever back before stepping on the clutch/brake & if i don't hessssitaaaateeeee the gears really grind.

Yes, the Vbrake is actuated when the brake pedal is depressed. The brake pad does rub aginst the inside of the rear Vpulley and stops it. This tractor had the brake installed when I bought it 12 years ago.

Is that a sanctioned AC Modification? If so, is it still available? I wonder if that could be added to a variable speed unit that doesn't have it... Steve

From what i can see it looks llike an "L" bracket mounted on existing linkage. Is that true? What is the "pad made of?
