Two-mobile mechanisms have brand new possibilities of action, but only the automobile differential now is used. In present time the efforts on creation and research of adaptive two-mobile mechanisms possessing affinity of force adaptation to variable technological loading are undertaken. However presence of two degree of freedom at one input link raises the doubts in definability of motion of the mechanism because of possibility of a stop of output link under load. Capacity for work of adaptive mechanisms is under question because some support point providing so-called «moment linkage» or «support on the case» is absent in mechanism. In the present work the analysis of working capacity of two-mobile mechanisms is made and the way of creation of effective two-mobile mechanisms on the basis of optimum use of a friction and other decisions is considered.
