An Industry First: New England Truckmount Makes PTO History

In May 2014, New England Truckmount made PTO installation history when it installed a White Magic Pro-1200 direct drive unit into a 2010 GMC Savana 1500 cargo van with a 5.3 liter engine, according to a press release. The custom install, which had never before been done in this scope, began in the winter of 2013.

Historically over decades, every one of these installations required a certain small 105 amp alternator to accommodate an important piece of bracketry to maintain correct alignment and pitch of the machinery's entire drive system. Larger alternators could never be used, but only a larger one was compatible with this particular vehicle's charging system.

“We were told several times that it simply could not be done,” says owner Brian Collopy. “Hiring more qualified shop talent was the key.”
