Detroit Diesel Corporation and its component brand Detroit announced the availability of a power take-off (PTO) option for its automated manual transmission, the Detroit DT12.

Both the Direct Drive and Over Drive DT12 transmissions are available for order with a proprietary rear mounted PTO on original Freightliner Cascadia models with or without the Evolution aerodynamic package, and Western Star 5700XE models. This option is scheduled to be available for the new Freightliner Cascadia on Jan. 1, 2018.

“The introduction of this PTO will allow us to offer customers in the Bulk Haul tractor trailer segment a Detroit DT12 automated manual transmission with a PTO option in certain applications,” said Kelly Gedert, manager of Detroit Powertrain and Component Marketing. “The majority of these customers are more weight sensitive, which helps make the Detroit DT12 more attractive than other competitor automated manual transmissions.”

The DT12 PTO is for use in the bulk haul tractor trailer market specifically and tailored for stationary operation on 100% pavement only. Targeted applications include liquid trailers, dry goods, wet goods and moving floors.
