Detroit, a subsidiary of Daimler Trucks North America, announces the availability of a power take-off (PTO) option for its automated manual transmission, the Detroit DT12.
Both the Direct Drive and Over Drive DT12 transmissions are available for order with a proprietary rear mounted PTO on original Freightliner Cascadia models with or without the Evolution aerodynamic package, and Western Star 5700XE models.
The Detroit DT12 Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) has gained rapid customer acceptance with customers since it was launched with approximately 65% of customers ordering the DT12 in the Cascadia and approximately 85% of customers ordering the DT12 in the 5700XE for 2016.
The DT12 PTO is for use in the bulk haul tractor trailer market specifically and tailored for stationary operation on 100% pavement only. Targeted applications include liquid trailers, dry goods, wet goods and moving floors.
