What is the minimum RPM I should operate my PTO, so that my vehicle will perform Regeneration during PTO mode?
Regeneration in PTO Mode - when a vehicle is being operated in PTO mode and a diesel particulate filter (DPF) regeneration is commanded, the engine must be run at a speed above the minimum speeds listed in the tables in Body Builder Manual, Section 9, Table of Contents / Regeneration in PTO Mode. The minimum speed setting can be affected by ambient temperature and/or altitude.
Can the I-Shift change gears while transmission mounted PTO is active?
When a I-Shift mounted PTO is engaged, it is only possible to move the truck in one gear (1st, 2nd, or 3rd) – the transmission will not shift gears when the PTO is active. The transmission will not disengage the PTO once it is turned on and recognized by the VECU or TECU via the factory-installed PTO switch.
On Volvo I-Shift, with PTO engaged while in neutral, and then selecting Drive the PTO stops turning. Why?
Remember that the I-Shift is an automated manual transmission with a clutch. With the PTO engaged while in neutral, when selecting Drive, the clutch is released, then the transmission shifts into gear. When the driver takes his foot off the brake pedal and presses the throttle pedal the clutch will reengage and the PTO will start to turn again. The transmission will not shift gears and driver is limited to about 6 MPH.
