A transaxle apparatus is constructed so that left and right axles, two hydrostatic transmissions (HSTs), one for driving a vehicle and the other for steering it, and a differential unit for differentially connecting said axles with each other are together contained in a housing. The driving HST is disposed so that its hydraulic pump and motor are aligned along either a left or right side of the housing. The steering HST is disposed so that its hydraulic pump and motor are aligned along either a front or rear side of the housing. The differential unit is ...


[ What is claimed is:] [1.]1. An integral transaxle apparatus for driving and steering a vehicle, comprising:a housing forming a fluid sump therein;a pair of final output means disposed in said housing;a differential unit disposed in said housing for differentially connecting said final output means with each other;a first transmission system disposed in said housing for steplessly driving said pair of final output means, including a first hydrostatic transmission and a first mechanical transmission, wherein power of a prime mover is transmitted into sai...
