GALESBURG, Mich. — Eaton has announced the availability of split shaft power take-off capabilities for its UltraShift Plus vocational transmissions.
The enhancements allow for transmission gear selection and clutch control outside the cab, eliminating the need for operators to enter and exit the cab to change transmission gears. This improves safety and efficiency, according to the company.
The transmission also allows for the use of all transmission gear ratios for PTO minimum and maximum drive gears, Eaton announced.
The additions will be useful in a variety of applications, including mining, oilfield, hydro-excavating and vacuum applications.
“Prior to these new enhancements, the only way to engage the split shaft PTO was from inside the cab,” said Ryan Trzybinski, product planning manager for Eaton. “Now operators have remote clutch and remote shift capabilities from a panel outside of the cab along with the existing remote throttle.”
