Reliable Vehicle Hydraulic PTO & Hydraulic Pump Kits
When it comes to maintaining your commercial or 4x4 vehicle, it is absolutely essential that you only use the very best components. If you use substandard components in any part of your engine, then you are courting disaster right from the start.
What Are Vehicle Hydraulic PTO & Hydraulic Pump Kits?
A hydraulic power take off (PTO) method is an effective way of taking power from a source, in this case, an engine, and effectively transmitting it to an external application, such as an attached accessory or even a completely separate machine. In this case it’s a hydraulic electromagnetic clutch and hydraulic pump assembly bolted to the engine block.
Domestic Uses Of A Vehicle PTO & Pump Kit
Commonly, these hydraulic PTO and hydraulic pump kits are used in vehicles to supply power to other systems other than that of the main engine. For example, they may be used to power a hydraulic cylinder, hydraulic motor or an external piece of hydraulic machinery requiring flow and pressure.
Commercial Uses Of A Vehicle Hydraulic PTO & Pump Kit
Typically, large-scale commercial trucks will have multiple locations that allow PTO systems to be fitted. These hydraulic PTO systems can supply power to not only the assisted steering of a vehicle, but can also provide power to the hydraulic suspension systems that stretch along the entire length of overly-long vehicles.
These hydraulic kits are suitable for a range of different commercial vehicles with hydraulic and relevant systems requiring power take-off:
· HIAB-Type Crane Application
· Recovery Vehicle Tilt & Slide Bodies
· Skip Equipment
· Tipper Applications
· Winch Applications
· Hook Loaders
· Specification Lifts
What Is Included In A Vehicle Hydraulic PTO & Hydraulic Pump Kit?
The hydraulic kits that Flowfit offer are complete, and include all the components of a reliable hydraulic PTO system. Each kit, for every brand and manufacturer that Flowfit can supply a model for, comes with:
· An Electromagnetic Clutch
· A Bearing Housing
· A Hydraulic Gear Pump
· An Engine Mounting Bracket
· A Crankshaft Pulley
· A V-Belt
· A Complete Clutch And Pump-Bolt Kit
There are a variety of different variations available, and each one is designed to suit a range of different models. Flowfit can provide models that are suitable for both air-conditioned and un-air-conditioned vehicles; this is only an issue as, in most cases, the presence of air-conditioning will require the hydraulic PTO/Pump kit to be housed in a difference location.
The Specifications Of Flowfit Hydraulic Power Take-Off And Hydraulic Pump Kits
These kits are ideal options rather than fitting DC electrical hydraulic power packs that drain the batteries. For added convenience, most will simply bolt straight onto the engine block itself, but it is always better to check through assembly instructions first to make sure you are installing the kit in the right manner.
All of Flowfit's kits are based on an 800 rpm idling engine speed, however they can be altered according to your desired application. Essentially, the faster the engine revs, the more flow you will produce, meaning the more power you supply to your external applications.
