Parker Chelsea Saves Installation Time With 897 Series PTO

Tue June 08, 2010 - National Edition

Parker Chelsea, a power transfer solutions provider to the work truck market, makes PTO and pump installation simpler and more reliable on refuse truck, fire apparatus and pumper cleaner trucks, according to the manufacturer.

Chelsea’s new 897 series is designed to handle torsional vibrations from today’s diesel engines that prematurely wear out mating PTO and pump splines. The 897 provides maximum clearance and the wet spline system lubricates the mating PTO and pump shafts to extend shaft life.

The new 897 series is a constantly engaged PTO and is available with five speed ratios and output options providing broad coverage for all application requirements.
