The Volvo FL is a versatile truck that can be used for various assignments within the distribution segment and inner city environments. In order for the truck to be able to operate additional applications, a power source is needed. Enter the PTO, the easily operated power system that gives you the possibility to use the power of the truck to operate such load-handling equipment as cooling or blower systems or a small hooklift.
Get the most from your superstructure.
The PTO is the vital link between the power source and the function. The solutions available for the Volvo FL are comprehensive and you’ll always find a PTO that fits your specific needs. Since the interaction between power take-off and driveline is crucial for quality, Volvo power take-offs are designed specifically for Volvo engines and gearboxes. In addition to reliability, this brings many advantages, such as low weight and simpler maintenance.
Engine-mounted or gearbox-mounted.
For the Volvo FL, you’ll find PTO options for both the D5K as well as the D8K engines. In both cases the maximum torque is 600 Nm. Should you opt for a gearbox-mounted PTO, there’s a wide range of clutch-dependent and clutch-independent options, all depending on your gearbox.

Specification is crucial.
There are many reasons why it is important to specify and order the correct power take-off with the chassis from the factory. The four most important ones are optimal operation, higher quality, simpler fitting and lower overall cost. Volvo’s power take-offs are produced to guarantee the highest possible quality and perfect matching to the severe demands of the distribution sector.
When specifying power take-offs it is important to optimise the combination of engine, gearbox, power take-off and hydraulic pump. A well-optimised system brings benefits in terms of performance, noise level, weight and cost.
Tailor your solution.
The length of time for which a power take-off is used varies depending on the application, and the power demand for every application varies within wide limits. Make sure you discuss your needs with your Volvo dealer or representative in order to find a PTO solution fitted to your specific application.
