WPT Power Corporation has expanded its power take-off line with the introduction of the Pilotless™ Mechanical Power Take-off (PTO). The product launch was revealed at the 2015 Tree Care Industry Expo in Pittsburgh, PA in November.
Tier 4 standards have made the fitment of pilot bearings increasingly difficult. This new mechanical PTO design eliminates the pilot bearing while increasing side load capacity. Up to 74% over previous generations of mechanical PTO products. They come standard with ball-bearing engagement collars and feature a dual spherical roller main bearing design. The WPT Pilotless™ Mechanical PTO will optimize your costs by reducing inventory, increasing uptime, and engine life. Moreover, it simplifies your installation time.
“The previous standard in mechanical PTO design has remained relatively unchanged for 75 years. However, industrial engine applications have become more demanding than ever. Customers needed a design rugged enough to meet those demands,” said Jeremy Bodine, Applications Engineer at WPT Power. “We have engineered that solution with the WPT Pilotless™ Mechanical Power Take-off.”
