Peterbilt vocational products now offer split-shaft PTOs

Updated Aug 1, 2012

Peterbilt Motors Co. announced that its vocational product line now is available with a wide range of split-shaft power take-off options, suited for customers operating specialized equipment that frequently require a PTO installed rearward of the transmission. The new split-shaft PTO options are available for immediate production needs.

“Peterbilt continues to expand its product reach into new vocational markets,” says Robert Woodall, director of sales and marketing. “Features such as split-shaft PTOs provide our vocational customers the component technology they need to successfully operate their business and position Peterbilt for growth in this important market segment.”

Peterbilt has partnered with Namco to integrate its product designs into the production process. Split-shaft PTOs are designed for high-speed and torque characteristics necessary to function with concrete pumpers, oilfield equipment, vacuum trucks, mobile drilling rigs (water or petroleum) and emergency vehicle applications.
