“It upgrades you to new technology from previous, very old mechanical technology that requires many adjustments, much maintenance,” he says. “This offers you the option to have remote control with the flip of a switch … or can be incorporated into your engine control system or vehicle control systems.”

Outside of offshore applications, the PTO can be utilized in agriculture applications – such as irrigation pivot systems – and much more.

“It can be used on any universal power unit that has an engine with a power take off disconnect.”
