Twin Disc PTO – The Best Selection Guide

Twin Disc PTO is one of the industry leaders in providing transmission products that can handle the most challenging demands with precision, power, and easy control. Their products are designed to deliver the exact amount of energy you need under any conditions, time and time again.

PTOs have many moving parts, and following the proper lubrication specifications for your specific model is essential.

Choosing a PTO

When it comes to choosing the correct PTO for your machine, you have a few options to choose from. A complete replacement power take-off or a clutch pack are two of the more common choices, but you’ll want to consider your needs and budget before making any decisions. Fortunately, we are experts in the field and have compiled the best selection guide.

To make the most of your next purchase, we have compiled this list of the most important things to consider before you buy your new PTO. Of course, the most important factor is how much you’ll use it, which will help determine which type of PTO best suits your machine.

Hydraulic PTOs

Hydraulic PTOs are a great way to power pumps and other heavy-duty equipment. They feature oil-filled, multiple discs, hydraulically actuated, self-adjusting clutch.

Whether you’re driving pumps, grinders, mulchers, dredgers, chippers, or heavy-duty drills, these rugged, engineered hydraulic PTOs provide reliable performance and productivity. They also offer high protection for your driveline equipment, helping minimize startup, acceleration, deceleration, and shutdown loads.

Hydraulic PTOs are available in various horsepower ranges and can be remotely mounted or directly connected to the input or output of our pump drives. They are available in SAE flanges with sizes ranging from 11.5’’ to 21’’. They offer a compact design and can be configured for various applications. If you have questions about how a PTO can best fit your application, contact K&L today. We have a team of experienced technicians to help you choose the correct PTO for your needs. We can also provide parts and service for your equipment.

Mechanical PTOs

The PTO is a standard method of transmitting power from stationary industrial engines. It’s used in various applications, from smaller-scale operations to major industrial and construction projects.

There are several types of PTOs, but all transfer power from a running engine to a secondary machine or attachment without needing a separate motor. Typically, PTOs are semi-permanently mounted on industrial and marine engines to send power to drive shafts, sheaves, or sprockets.

Mechanical PTOs are an excellent option for many applications, including road-building equipment, agricultural machinery, and pump drives. They can be engaged or disengaged remotely via hydraulic or pneumatic actuation.

PTOs are essential in portable power systems, and fleets must ensure they choose the right one. They can start by determining how fast they need to run the engine, what type of application they have in mind, and how the PTO will shift—by air, cable, or electric-over-hydraulic.

Remotely Actuated PTOs

A remotely activated PTO is an excellent option for reducing downtime. This type of PTO has a hydraulic or pneumatic actuator that engages the clutch on demand when required.

It is a cost-effective solution that provides smoother operation and flexibility with configuration. In addition, it can be engaged and disengaged from anywhere in or outside the cab with remote controls, making it easy for operators to remain seated in their vehicles.

Twin Disc PTO has developed a remotely activated mechanical PTO available for many models, including the SP314 and SP3111. It uses a patent-pending design to actuate the over-center mechanism in the mechanical SP.
