How does a PTO work on a semi?
PTO (Power Take Off) generates power by changing engine rotation to “Hydraulic”. Hydraulic pressure is a mechanism that uses fluid called hydraulic fluid as an energy transmission medium. Also, when PTO changes engine energy to hydraulic pressure, a part called “ PTO shaft” is required.

The power take-off is accessed most often via an air valve or through a mechanical, electrical or a hydraulic pump to transfer mechanical energy through a fluid system on the vehicle. A hydraulic motor converts the fluid force back into rotary or mechanical force.
