Peterbilt introduces mobile PTO functionality with Paccar transmission

Peterbilt kept up its busy week Thursday, announcing the availability of new mobile PTO functionality with the Paccar TX-8 automatic transmission in the Models 548, 537 and 536.

Peterbilt says this new option allows for PTO engagement beyond first gear, increasing vehicle capabilities for vocational applications. Peterbilt also launched a new transmission for its Models 567 and 579 earlier this week.

“This additional PTO functionality provides the versatility to support Peterbilt customers with the right products and technologies for their unique business needs,” says Jake Montero, Peterbilt assistant general manager, sales and marketing. “The Paccar TX-8 is a great fit for utility service, tow trucks, and a wide range of other vocational applications.”

Paccar says its 8-speed automatic transmission is designed to work seamlessly with Paccar PX engines and enhances performance, increases fuel efficiency and lowers cost of operation of Peterbilt’s medium-duty and vocational applications with a Gross Combination Weight Rating (GCWR) up to 57,000 lb.
