I got 4 of these laying around but only two identical (same gearing).


But im planning on makin a tracked autonomys robot mower of those two identical.

You could use 1 of your unmatched ones to feed into a geared transaxle and have a multi range geared hydro system

Case lawn tractors use hydraulic drive on their diffs, no pulleys or belts, just hoses. You could articulate one with no problems. You just need a pump to supply hydraulics for the drive motors and steering. Case mowers are out there, and can be found cheaper than Cub Cadets. I have several donors but no time or shop space to build one.

This is what i ment, But with two trannys and with the pivot point exactly on the center of the pulleys. Meaning you dont have to use more pulleys and stuff.

Personally, I'd go with a 4 wheel steer setup, like the old full size Case 4wd tractors.

Need two RWS diffs to do it.


They could crab steer when you needed to

I would never get four hydros of the same gearing it just cost to much. Even hydraulic.
But maybe with two transaxles. Time will show:)
