In this Oil Gas vehicle application, the Logan SAE 600 series Direct Drive PTO is mounted on a typical 2-pad live PTO pump pad, sandwiched between a CAT 3412 Diesel Engine and an Allison 8900 Series Transmission. The Logan 600 series Direct Drive Power Take-off (PTO) clutch will connect or disconnect the single and tandem pumps mounted to the live PTO pump pad. The pumps are used only on the job site, and remain disconnected(via the Logan PTO) when the vehicle is idle and not in use, or when driving to and from the job site. This option to clutch-in and clutch out the pumps minimizes wear and tear on the pumps, reduces unnecessary fuel consumption, and the chances of over speeding the pumps (since they are disconnected from the drivetrain) when the vehicle is at highway speeds during transport.
