Power take-offs

There is a wide range of clutch-independent and clutch-dependent power take-offs to drive all sorts of body equipment.

Clutch-independent power take-offs
PTER-DIN: Rear-mounted engine power take-off for direct drive of a hydraulic pump.
PTER1400: Rear-mounted engine power take-off with flange connection for hydraulic pump.

Clutch-dependent power take-offs
PTR-F: Connecting flange attachment and low-rev or high-rev.
PTR-FL/FH: Connecting flange attachment and low-rev or high-rev.
PTR-D/PTR-DM/PTR-DH: Low/medium/high-rev with DIN-connection for direct attachment of a hydraulic pump.
PTRD-F: High-rev with connecting flange attachment for direct-fitted propshaft.
PTRD-D: High-rev with dual drive. DIN connection front and rear for direct attachment of hydraulic pumps.
PTRD-D1: High-rev with dual drive. Connecting flange attachment at the rear and DIN attachment at the front.
PTRD-D2: High-rev with dual drive rear and single drive front. Two connecting flange attachments rear and one DIN attachment at the front.

Clutches

CS43B-O: Pull-type single-disc clutch.
All Volvo’s clutches are lead-free.
