Kenworth Truck Company announced that its all-wheel drive T270 Class 6 and T370 Class 7 models can be factory-ordered with a Fabco power take-off (PTO) option on the two-speed transfer case.
This transfer case PTO option for all-wheel drive T270s and T370s especially serves oilfield, fire and rescue, hydro-excavation, vacuum truck, well drilling, and high-rate fluid transfer applications.
The PTO output drive, which is on the upper rear of the transfer case, comes with shift control interlocks to help safeguard PTO operation. When specified with an Allison transmission, a special split-shift PTO programming package is included to help ensure maximum system protection and effectiveness when shifting in and out of PTO mode.
Producing up to 2,200 ft-lbs of torque using 250 hp, the new PTO runs up to 3,500 rpm. It is available for the all-wheel drive T270 and T370 with a Paccar PX-6 or PX-8 engine and a front drive axle rated from 10,000 to 16,000 lbs.
