They do have a differential. Gear ratios are : 650 have a 4.0, and the 700's have a 3.6. Been a lot of discussions regarding the XTX Turf Saver! Welding has been one method, but from what I remember most welded rears have failed! You can use a 650 rear differential, but have to mount the 700 ring gear, also the axle inner CV joints ( I bough complete axles for what the CV joints run!) will need to be replaced as the splines are different. I used a later model rear end on my 700 XTX. I bought a bunch of used stuff, and rebuilt one for mine. The turf saver rears were in production between 2008 thru 2010. Many have reported failures of the unit, some of the symptoms are jerky starts, severe chatter when turning corners, and loss of traction. I have a 700 XTX, and replaced the rear at 7,500 miles, but I replaced mine for snow plowing and the unit is still in good condition!
