The ePTO allows the loader crane to be prowered electrically by a plug-in system, instead of the vehicle's engine. Using electric power instead of conventional diesel poser offers considerable benefits, including improved energy efficiency, lower noise levels and less environmental impact, while also miking it possible to work indoors
Facts about the loading solution
Crane operation with ePTO
The electric power take off (ePTO) system comprises a battery, an electric motor, a hydraulic pump and a smart electronic control system. This is all packaged in a stainless steel box that is mounted on the truck chassis. A display mounted inside the truck cabin provides information about the current status of the ePTO, which can also be started and
stopped by using the display.
Automatic starting and stopping
Operation of the ePTO in combination with a HIAB X-HiPro loader crane is very straightforward. When the crane is not in use the electric pump is automatically switched off to save energy and battery capacity. As soon as you move a control lever the ePTO starts up again.
Powerful battery with ample capacity
The system’s battery has a capacity of 40 kWh, which is sufficient for an average day of crane work. The battery is recharged at night and can also be support charged at the work place if an electricity supply is available.
Standard hydraulic pump for back-up
The truck is also equipped with a conventional hydraulic pump on the transmission power take off (PTO), so when the PTO is engaged hydraulic oil is supplied by the conventional hydraulic pump. The ePTO will not start in this mode.
With its patented technology, the Cyclone Reservoir removes air bubbles from the oil 10 times more efficient than a traditional Oil tank.
Using a Variable Oil Pump means less fuel consumption and longer oil life, with lower CO2 emissions and operating costs as a result.
