The TG Series power take-off (PTO) from Muncie Products can be configured to meet the speed, torque and horsepower requirements of most applications.

“It takes off power from the engine through the transmission and into the gearbox, and then that gearbox can drive other components like vacuum pumps or hydraulic pumps,” says Rick Wallace, product manager at Muncie Power Products.

It is available with 10 speed ratios, 19 shift types, 19 output shaft options and 78 input gears for all popular transmissions. It also features an electric/hydraulic-shift option, eliminating the need for shift cables.

“It’s a mechanically shifted gearbox, which means that you have to stop the gear from spinning to engage the unit,” Wallace says. “It has a gear that runs against the transmission gear that is specially designed for each transmission that’s used out there.”

Its constant mesh input gear isolates the transmission from engagement errors, and the compact size minimizes mounting interference with rotatable hydraulic flanges for maximum pump clearance. The die-cast aluminum housing reduces weight and noise, and aids in heat dissipation. The PTO features a six- or eight-bolt housing and modular design for simplified installation and flexibility for easier repair.

“You don’t have to adapt it to go from a six-bolt to an eight-bolt,” Wallace says.

“People also like the PTO because it’s easy to install and it’s lighter weight than a lot of other power take-offs. To the operator, it’s pretty straightforward.” 800/367-7867; www.munciepower.com.
