  FrontPower 1000  

The standard for front PTO systems calls for 1000 rpm, regardless of the size of the tractor. All “factory installed” front PTO systems on agricultural tractors rotate at 1000 rpm.

Virtually all implements that are specifically designed for front mounting, i.e. hay mowers, require a 1000 rpm PTO.

International standards (ISO) require front PTO systems to rotate clockwise as seen from the front of the tractor (= counter-clockwise as imagined from the cab) at 1000 rpm using a 1 3/8” shaft with 21 splines. FrontPower 1000 is one of very few front PTO systems on the market to conform to all these requirements.

FrontPower 1000 Specifications-
- Continuous output rating: 180 HP, or full engine HP of the tractor if lower
- Rated rpm: 1000
- Direction of rotation: Correct according to ISO (clockwise viewed from the front)
- Output shaft: 1 3/8” diameter, 21 splines
