Mack® mDRIVE™ Automated Manual Transmission Now Available with Left and Right Dual PTO Option
GREENSBORO, NC (Jan. 18, 2022) – Mack Trucks announced that the Mack® mDRIVE™ Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) now features a left and right dual Power Takeoff (PTO) option for highway and vocational customers, offering increased versatility for customers and bodybuilders.
Available for customers with Mack Granite®, Mack Anthem® and Mack Pinnacle™ models with 12-speed, 13-speed and 14-speed Mack proprietary mDRIVE AMTs, the premium option offers cleaner routing to frame- and body-mounted equipment.
“The left and right dual PTO allows drivers to run their hydraulic pump equipment on both sides of the vehicle, improving the ease of use on jobsites and maximizing flexibility for applications requiring the operation of multiple PTOs,” said Tim Wrinkle, Mack construction product manager. “This also increases functionality for customers.”
Ideal for both dry and wet bulk applications, the dual PTO is available with clutched adapters with DIN-mounted or SAE flange connections. Both the left and right dual PTO ports rotate counterclockwise, and the adapters are interchangeable and easily adjusted in the field.
The dash switches work independently of each other through an air solenoid, so both PTOs do not have to be on for one to work. The dual PTO is also available with up to two direct-mount hydraulic pumps factory-installed, as well as retrofit options.
The proprietary Mack mDRIVE that powers the dual PTO delivers increased fuel efficiency, smoother shifts and a more comfortable driving experience. When paired with proprietary Mack MP® engines and axles, the integrated powertrain offers an improved total cost of ownership for customers.
The left and right dual PTO is available for order. For more information, visit www.macktrucks.com.
