Responding to the market demand, we have developed a new two-gear PTO to mount on the left side of the Isuzu MVC-Y6G (6MT) gearbox. This new PTO will be available with output flange SAE and DIN so as with ISO 4 bolts to mount a pump and with vacuum or mechanical shifting. This product will be available in the last quarter of 2017. For more information, contact our sales department.
Following our commitment to quality and to the continuous improvement of our equipment and processes, we have recently acquired the new Gleason 300TWG, which allows the teeth grinding of segmented gears of our ptos and pumps up to module 8. This machine tool has a great performance and it is operated by axes driven by servomotors and components of the highest quality. Its profile grinding capacity and contour dressing offers…
The Power Take-Off or PTO is a mechanical device which is mounted on the gearbox to obtain power and a determined rpm for our application. This mechanical energy from the gearbox is transmitted to the pump and converted into hydraulic energy. When selecting a PTO we should consider different issues:
When requesting a PTO it is very important to know the brand and the model of the transmission.
With that information, we can advise you to select the most adequate power take-off for your application.
Most of the industrial vehicles are supplied with one or more PTO openings. Each window may have different transmission ratios. According to the position of the window, it can classified as follows:
Side: The window for installing the PTO is on the right or on the left side of the gearbox, always looking at the gearbox from the rear of the vehicle.
Rear: The opening window is on the rear of the gearbox, most common with ZF, MB ad Volvo transmissions.
Bottom: The window is in the bottom or « belly » of the box.
Based on the application, the pto shall have different outputs. The most common outputs are:
Flange to connect to a transmission (SAE 1100, SAE 1300, SAE 1400, DIN 90, DIN 100, DIN 120, etc.)
In order to calculate the power consumption it is necessary to know the pressure and flow of our application.
Depending on the number of gears of the PTO, we can choose the direction of rotation.
Bezares also offers rotation reverse adapters for those cases where there are no different options.
Depending on the internal ratio of the pto, the PTOs can be:
Simple: Also called direct. 1: 1 ratio
Multiplied: The ratio will be 1:> 1
Reduced: The ratio will be 1: <1.
In order to calculate the final ratio you just need to multiply the transmission’s output ratio by the PTO’s internal ratio.
Depending on the type of actuator, the power take-offs can be classified as follows:
Pneumatic: If the truck has air brake, it means that it has a compressor. They are usually driven at 7kg / cm2 – 8kg/cm2.
In small vehicles, where no compressor is available, it is possible to install one using the Bezares pneumatic pressure kit. It is an independent unit without maintenance, which provides a pneumatic line.
Mechanic: They are manually operated by means of a lever or cable that connects directly to the PTO’s piston. With the movement of the cab’s lever, the power take-off’s fork moves internally and engages it.
Vacuum: When the truck has a depressor, it works through a vacuum line.
If your vehicle does not have one, it’s also possible to install it using the Bezares’ simple acting shifting kit.
Electric with motor: This actuator includes a small electric motor which moves a bar which diplaces the synchronizer until the pto is enganged. This system ensures always an easy engagement.
In contrast to the electric actuator with solenoid-type, the electric motor only works when engaging and disenganging the pto. This allows long working periods of time without power consume and avoiding possible damage to the vehicles battery.
Electrohydraulic: It incorporates an electrohydraulic actuator. They are normally used in the clutch PTOs for automatic Allison or Aisin gearboxes.
Bezares keep Developing Solutions for our Allison PTOs, as this new lubricated output shaft SAE B version for our 3300 PTO.
The new ‘Wet Spline’ Option has the advantage of providing more wear protection on the output shaft for factors such as friction or vibration.
This through a new oil dipping flange into the splined shaft to the output of the PTO, thus extending the life of the PTO and hydraulic pump.
Especially suitable for Heavy Duty Applications Requiring Many drives or vehicles equipped with powerful and ligh engines, being able to transmit more torque to the gearbox and therefore to the PTO.

In the following months BZ will launch a new hydraulic winch for applications with reduced mounting space and with a maximum rope capacity of 15 m. Some example applications would be pick-up vehicles, winches mounted under the platform or on the second floor or auxiliary winches.
This new winch is a reduced and lighter version (less than 30 kg) of our actual Bull. Currently under development, it is expected to be finished in the last quarter of the year.
The Bull Pick-up will be available in two differente models: 3500 kg and 4500 kg.
Regarding the shifting options, it could be ordered:
- With manual clutch
- With pneumatic clutch
- With clutch activated by cable
- Without clutch (for the situations with no direct access to the winch, saving space in the installation).
