Rear-mount PTO offers improved clearance

May 18, 2012

A new rear-mount PTO from Parker Chelsea is said to eliminate clearance issues while providing high torque ratings.

The Chelsea 511 Series PTO includes a coaxial designed rear-mount PTO with compact housing. High capacity bearings and gear designs provide torque ratings up to 590 lbs.-ft..or 800 Nm, the company said.

It has 17 mounting adapters that will allow it to fit on 131 different transmissions. It features four shift options which are integrated into the PTO housing for a space saving design. The cam lock shift mechanism provides positive engagement for each shift cycle. The four direct mount pump flange options come standard with Parker Chelsea’s Wet Spline design and provides increased PTO and pump shaft life, the company added.
