Ground speed PTO is a powerful tool for forestry tasks, earthmoving, mountainous regions, spreading lime, peat bogs and spreading slurry. Even on steep slopes or unsolid ground, ground speed PTO can transmit power to the wheels of a trailer by means of a mechanical axle. With power to all the wheels on the tractor and trailer, the combination can pull itself out of any situation, practically up a vertical wall.
Even though ground speed PTO is known everywhere, it is particularly popular in the Nordic region, particularly in Finland, as well as in Northern Italy. In Scandinavia it is widely used on large tractors and for heavy contracting tasks. In Northern Italy, ground speed PTO is a common feature that farmers use to pull heavy loads up the steep Alpine slopes. Ground speed PTO is also popular throughout Europe for pulling heavy timber loads over short distances. Basically, ground speed PTO is used whenever uninterrupted pulling power is needed in extreme conditions.
Ground speed PTO is available on all Valtra F, N and T Series tractors. N and T Series Direct models are the only tractors that feature both a stepless transmission and ground speed PTO. The leading trailer manufacturers offer forest, earthmoving and spreading trailers with mechanical drive by order.
