A steer-drive interposes respective left and right orbital gear drives into the vehicle drivetrain between the engine/transmission and the respective propulsion axles associated with each side of the vehicle. The orbital drive units comprise only an input gear and an output gear interconnected by at least one orbiting cluster gear that is supported in a rotating housing and also meshes only with the input and output gears. The orbital units are designed so that (a) when rotation of the housing is prevented, driving torque is transferred at speed ratios s...
1. A steer-drive system receiving, combining, and transmitting driving torque and steering torque to respective left and right drives, said system comprising:respective left and right orbital units each having: an input gear mounted on a first axis, and an output gear mounted on said first axis, at least one cluster gear meshed with only said input and output gears and mounted for rotation on an orbit shaft positioned parallel with said first axis, said orbit shaft being supported in a housing mounted for rotation about said first axis to permit said orb...
