PTO power is now available to operate implements attached to ATVs and utility vehicles (UVs). The new ProMan PTO kit mounts on the end of a crankcase and is PTO-driven to convert to hydraulics. Quick couplers attach implements to the front of the vehicle for use with the ProMan PTO. The device is easy to remove and install on other implements and vehicles.
The ProMan PTO eliminates the need for gas engines on implements, and the front mounting of the implement gives better visibility. The company sells several implements, including mowers, a log splitter and a leaf blower, to work with the PTO kit and plans to offer more implements in the future.
The ProMan PTO is $2,500 to $3,000 for an ATV and $3,000 to $3,500 for a UV. Implements cost $1,500 to $3,000. For more information, contact ProMan PTO at 855/776-6261, or visit www.promanpto.com.
