Has anybody ever used a centrifugal clutch with a transmission or transaxle? It seems like it would work, and would give you almost hydrostat-like functionality. But if it works, it seems like it would be more common.
My thoughts for a project involve a riding mower, which usually uses a spring-loaded idler as a "clutch" that goes to a transaxle. However, I don't necessarily have a good way of acuating the idler in my design. So, I thought about using a centrifugal clutch, but then I'm limited in my top speed. So, if I used a centrifugal clutch, I could just idle the motor down and it would be effectively disengaged.
