Muncie’s New PTO Extension
By pdamon18 April 2016
Muncie Power Products has launched its latest power take-off shaft extension designed to fit Allison 3000 and 4000 Series transmissions with or without a retarder or cooler.
The new EX Drive replaces the driveline, allowing for direct mounting of large gear or piston pumps while reducing installation time, Muncie said. It is designed with a minimized housing diameter intended to allow for installation in extremely tight spaces.
The EX Drive incorporates a welded tube housing and clamping bracket and the shaft extension is available for both clutch-shift and constant-drive PTOs. A wet-spline design virtually eliminates fretting corrosion of the pump and PTO shafts, Muncie said.
With four output options for various commonly used pump models (SAE B, SAE BB, SAE C and DIN 5462), the shaft extension’s rotatable flange allows the pump to be clocked for different positioning.
