These models embody over 20 years of engineering experience with PTO pump drives. They were developed for use as directly driven hydraulic pump speed increasers for 540 or 1000 RPM tractor PTO shafts. Models for 540 RPM PTO’s are provided with a 1 3/8” 6T spline hollow shaft and for 1000 RPM PTO’s, a 1 3/8” 21T spline hollow shaft. Shafts are splined internally for full length for through drive. Normal practice is to utilise a torque arm to restrain the drive from rotation.
Maximum power is 50 HP (37.5 kW) with the 1:3.31 ratio models at 540 RPM input and 65 HP (49 kW) in the 2.04 ratio models at 1000 RPM input. The T33 is available to accept most SAE “A”, SAE “B” or SAE “C” hydraulic pumps. Pump adaptors on the T33 may be changed in the field.
