Clutch-dependent PTOs are fitted on the output end or laterally on the transmission housing. They only operate when the engine is running and the vehicle clutch is closed.
Applications: Water, sludge, and hydraulic pumps, compressors, winches, turntable-equipped trucks, working platforms, etc.
Drive-dependent PTOs are connected to the transmission output shaft. They are active as soon as the drive wheels of the vehicle begin to move. They supply the hydraulic system of dual-circuit steering systems with working pressure. This means that the vehicle can still be steered in the case of engine failure.
