This paper presents a probabilistic model of loads of the planet wheels for the planetary gears with so called “floating driving wheels.” A model was used to determine the probability distribution of the planet wheel load. The examples of application of the obtained results to the planetary gears with three and five planet wheels are presented. The results confirm that the nonuniformity of the planet wheels load may be significant.
