ProMan PTO Adds Utility to Utility Vehicles and All-Terrain Vehicles

One of the coolest things I’ve seen so far, is some cutting-edge technology and engineering that enhances utility of two staples on the farm that previously often went underutilized: the UTV and ATV.

Kirk Jones, of ProMan PTO has engineered a cool way to add power take-off points on UTVs and ATVs that can power a cutting deck, log-splitter, leaf blower and more on either the front or back of these machines that in most cases are used only for hauling equipment and pure fun on the farm.

For the ATV, you’re looking at adding the system for around $5,500. For the UTV ProMan PTO mobile hydraulic platform, it’s going to run you around $6,000. Something to consider, though, especially if you’re considering adding a completely separate machine with PTO attachment capabilities. 



The system relies on a hydraulic pump attached to the motor and a reservoir cooler mounted to the machine – on the front-load rail of ATVs and under the front seat of UTVs – that run hydraulic hoses either to the front- or rear-mounted attachment.
