Logan self-adjusting, hydraulically actuated Bell Housing Power Take-Off (PTO) clutches have been standard equipment on OEM marine and mobile equipment for over 18 years. Thousands of Logan units are in the field, operating on airport snow blowers, highway and airport marking and runway rubber removal equipment, and more recently trailor mounted waterblasting equipment.  Logan vs. Mechanical PTO’s The advantage of the Logan Clutch is its ability to engage and disengage the water jetter hydraulically, through push-button activation, eliminating the use of a mechanical hand lever or yoke type clutch engagement system, which dates back to the early 40’s. Smooth, Logan softstart™ engagement eliminates clutch downtime due to over and under adjustment. And since the Logan clutch is self-adjusting, clutch engagement is smooth and consistent after hundreds of hours of use. The mechanical clutch requires the operator to “hand engage” a clutch, which opens up the opportunity for untrained operators to slam the clutch into gear at high rpm’s. Another mode of failure is when operators will over or under tighten the adjusting collar on mechanical clutch to the point where the clutch is too loose and slips to failure or is over tightened and never disengages. Unfortunately, this happens during operating conditions, forcing the water jetter to return to the rental yard, leading to unproductive downtime, inconsistent operation and the endless frus
