See. I knew that you knew your sht. 9-10 manIf they were smart (wich they usually arent) they would go with either a hydraulic (a good hydraulic) setup or an actual pto that mounts to the tranny pto plate like every other industry in the world.
They should team up with an established pto manufacturer thats been doing them for years like spicer or dana and put something out that works every day no matter what
Xdrive is a cool concept but what are the advantages over a traditional pto other than torque from being electric motor driven?I’ve been following cleaners who have X Drives for couple years now. Interesting concept.

I may be wrong but it seams like having more parts, more electrical, more complicated design would outweigh the advantages of having more torque vs a traditional well built pto system
Not sure but ford chevy dodge have pto plates right on the transmission if it would void their warranty why would they have it designed into their trannys? Plus if you buy say a new wrecker pto doesnt void original factory warranty why would it on a carpet cleaning van?I think the advantage is not violating the warranty by avoiding direct engine components.

I think one of the trade offs was the side difference with it being a bit bigger and the tank lid a little more set back. It's a small one but just one I noticed since a lot of people like the Hydramaster for the tiny footprint.No drive shaft seems to be a major advantage - I'd still like to use one and try it out before seriously thinking of buying it. As in most things, there is always a trade off somewhere.
