3 Reasons The Pilotless™ PTO Is The Best Choice

pilotless mechanical PTO for industrial applications

Forestry, Aggregates, Marine and Energy industries are more demanding than ever. Chippers, crushers, barge pumps and other machines are required to work harder, longer, and run more efficiently. This equipment needs a PTO can provide you with the durability, reliability, and longevity required in today’s working environment.

The Pilotless™ PTO does that!

1. Start with a pair of high capacity spherical roller bearings and individual grease ports, which provide up to 70 percent more capacity than the previous generation PTOs.

2. In the older style PTOs, a pilot bearing is supported by the engine flywheel. Both axial and radial loads are transferred into the main engine bearings. The lack of a pilot bearing in the Pilotless™ PTO means there is no load transferred to the main engine bearings. Less load on the engine bearings, means longer life.

3. The Pilotless™ Mechanical PTO has been designed with ease of maintenance in mind. The new PTOs come standard with a heavy duty sealed-for-life ball bearing throw-out collar. This makes for a strong unit and increases the maintenance interval from 20 to 100 hours.

No matter what industry you find yourself using a PTO—Forestry, Aggregates, Marine, or Energy—a move to the WPT Pilotless™ PTO translates to big payouts. It provides you with increased sideload capacity, no direct loading on the engine bearings, and less maintenance which reduce your operating costs. The Pilotless™ Mechanical PTO is the best choice for you.
