PTO TYPES

PTO TYPES

 

Side Transmission PTO: A power take off mounted on and driving from the side of the main chassis transmission, providing power to auxiliary equipment. Normal mounting locations are on the RH side at 2 to 4 o’clock, on the LH side 8 to 10 o’clock. The drive gear in the main transmission and the design of the PTO limits PTO power output capability. Common applications include: driving a hydraulic pump (SAE B or C) driving a pump (fire pump, home heating oil, water supply, motor or jet fuel), driving a power generator (1500rpm for a 50Hz or 1800rpm for a 60Hz)

 

Top Transmission PTO: A power take off mounted on and driving from the top of the main chassis transmission, providing power to auxiliary equipment. Normal mounting locations are on the topside at 10 to 1 o’clock. The drive gear in the main transmission and the design of the PTO limits PTO power output capability. Common applications include: driving a hydraulic pump (SAE B, C, D, E or F) driving a pump (fire pump, home heating oil, water supply, motor or jet fuel), driving a power generator (1500rpm for a 50Hz or 1800rpm for a 60Hz)

 

Rear Transmission PTO: A power take off mounted on and driving from the rear of the main chassis transmission, providing power to auxiliary equipment. Normal mounting locations are on the RH side at 2 to 4 o’clock, on the LH side 8 to 10 o’clock. PTO power output capability is limited by the drive gear or shaft in the main transmission and the design of the PTO. Common applications include: driving a hydraulic pump (SAE B or C) driving a pump (fire pump, home heating oil, water supply, motor or jet fuel), driving a power generator (1500rpm for a 50Hz or 1800rpm for a 60Hz)

 

Bottom Transmission PTO: A power take off mounted on and driving from the bottom of the main chassis transmission, providing power to auxiliary equipment. Normal mounting locations are on the bottom side at 5 to 7 o’clock. The drive gear in the main transmission and the design of the PTO limits PTO power output capability. Common applications include: driving a hydraulic pump (SAE B or C) driving a pump (fire pump, home heating oil, water supply, motor or jet fuel), driving a power generator (1500rpm for a 50Hz or 1800rpm for a 60Hz)

 

Split Drive Line PTO: A power take off which is mounted in the main chassis driveline, between the main chassis transmission or transfer case and the rear-driving axle. This is a separate freestanding gearbox; additionally there is a shifting system, which engages the auxiliary drive while disconnecting the drive power to the chassis rear axle. There maybe one or more auxiliary drive out puts. PTO power output capability is limited by the design of the PTO.  Common applications include: driving a hydraulic pump (SAE B, C, D, E or F) driving a pump (fire pump, water supply, motor or jet fuel), driving a power generator (1500rpm for a 50Hz or 1800rpm for a 60Hz)

 

Sandwich PTO: A power take off which is mounted between the chassis engines flywheel and the main chassis transmission. The output may be clutched or constant drive. PTO power output capability is limited by the design of the PTO. Common applications include: driving a hydraulic pump (SAE D, E or F) driving a pump (fire pump, water supply, motor or jet fuel), driving a power generator (1500rpm for a 50Hz or 1800rpm for a 60Hz)

 

 

Power Divider: A power take off which is mounted between the chassis engines flywheel and the main chassis transmission. The output is clutched to allow engagement at speeds at least up to 1100rpm, or more. Additionally there is a reverse acting clutch system installed between the PTO and the chassis transmission, which allows PTO output drive to take maximum power while diverting limited power to the main chassis transmission to move the vehicle. PTO power output capability is limited by the design of the PTO. Common applications include: Airport fire and rescue apparatus.

 

Rear Engine PTO (REPTO): A power take off built into the back end of the main drive engine; the output is normally continuously live. PTO power output capability is limited by the design of the PTO. Common applications include: driving a hydraulic pump (SAE D, E or F) driving a pump (fire pump, water supply, motor or jet fuel), driving a power generator (1500rpm for a 50Hz or 1800rpm for a 60Hz)
