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.
