The machine is made of a welded steel chassis, which provides a strong frame for the welded steel buck t, or oth accessories that can b used. pneuma Two handlebars are fitted, with the standard-looking controls conveniently placed for the operator.

The Honda engine drives a transaxle between the front wheels via a single V-belt, incorporating a tension belt clutch. The transaxle has a gearbox with four forward and one reverse gear, and a transmission disc brake.

A unique feature of the machine is its method of transmission of the drive from the driven front wheels to the rear wheels, via an “idler”pneumatic tyre on each side.
