PTOs: Power take-offs for trucks

  •   pto power take-off


Binotto offers a wide selection of PTOs mounted in most American, European, and Asian transmissions.
Both side gear or rear countershaft coupled, you can trust Binotto to power your system.

PTO can pick up the driving power in 2 ways:

  • Directly (when connected to the side gearbox port)
  • Indirectly (when connected to the back gearbox port) in this case the PTO must be coupled with a special shaft
  •   PTO for VOLVO and MACK


Rear mount PTO and shaft for popular VOLVO “I SHIFT” and MACK “M Drive” Series Transmissions.

How to select a PTO

The right power take-offs can be identified and selected for the work load of the application required.

We can group ptos in three main type of applications:

  • Short term workloads - less than 15 mins. (e.g., tipper trucks, hook loaders, vehicle transporters, etc.)
  • Medium workloads - 15< mins., >30 mins. (e.g., cranes, tank trucks, waste collection, tow trucks, etc.)
  • Long term workloads - >30 mins. (e.g., miscellaneous compressors, firefighting vehicles, sewer flushing equipment, pumps for concrete, forestry cranes, etc)

Therefore the PTO selection will need the following information

  • gear box manufacturer
  • gear box model
  • type of application (how many Nm)
  • required performances (if any)


Completed with mounting kit (seals and bolts), PTO can be directly connected to our hydraulic gear or piston pumps (or any other moving mechanism).
For different mounting requirements, auxiliary shafts , cardan shafts and adapter flanges are available.
