The PTO fits on the end of the t-case and does not have the same issues that a set of t-case gears does. PTO is a part time unit. And yes it is worth considering.How a PTO unit can cost $900 AUD and two t-case gears $2000 USD is beyond me...but at a price like that it may actually be worth considering.

Anyways, I've a M-D unit + Cross hydraulic pump for sale. Sounds like same as what Busto has.
Strangely enough, I have seen someone do this. They didn't have room under the bonnet (4.1l FORD 6 (AUS market)), so installed a pto off the back of the T-case to run a modified AC compressor for onboard air. Worked well. had a truck air tank mounted on one of the chassis rails also.TxD90 said:Anybody have any knowledge/experience with the Maxi-Drive PTO Unit?
I've been considering it as an interesting/outrageous solution to onboard air. Of course, I'm sure it is $$$.
I'ts not the biggest. It's the 1 cubic inch pump. They range from .5 cubic inch up to 1.8.wilsby said:Merv, what capacity pump is it? I'm looking for the biggest Cross version.
Not abandoned. I'm changing to engine V belt driven, using the twin Vbelt idea. I'm going with a 3.9 / auto setup in the tomcat so the engine driven option is probably better.PTSchram said:
What did you end up doing for hydraulic power to your winch? I vaguely remember a discussion on it earlier in the spring.
Or, did you abandon this to focus on the Tomcat (yes, I'm envious!).:flipoff2:
