Primary transmission system provides end-user flexibility


The primary transmission system on the OXE Diesel delivers the power from the powerhead to the gearbox. It provides the user with the ability to change the gear ratio of the unit to fit various demands and driving styles.

Depending on the needs of the operator, high torque or high speed can be selected. It's designed as a separate unit that is easily replaced or serviced. By switching the orientation of the primary belt housing, the user can change the gear ratio between 1.73:1 or 2.17:1. On OXE 125 - 200 and 1.59:1 or 2.37:1 on the OXE 300.

The transmission used in the OXE Diesel eliminates bevel gears by utilizing the latest belt technology. It allows for increased torque transfer from the powerhead to the propeller.
