Power density is what you will find in the Chelsea 870 Series PTO, says its manufacturer, Parker Hannifin. The new series provides a compact housing that helps eliminate clearance issues, with two assembly arrangements to maximize installation possibilities.

High-capacity bearings and what the company calls "superior" gear designs provide torque ratings up to 670 lb ft, and there’s no need to de-rate the PTO for continuous applications.

The 870 Series has a 10-bolt mounting pattern that will fit on today’s popular automatic transmissions. It features six shift options, four of which are integrated into the PTO housing, requiring one hose for a simplified installation. Eight internal gear ratios are offered, along with available Electronic Overspeed Control (EOC).

The direct-mount pump flange options are available with the Chelsea wet spline design that’s claimed to provide increased PTO and pump-shaft life.
