I have an 88 Ford Super duty bucket truck. A Chelsea model 420XSE CXW5 XG runs the hydraulics for the bucket. Can I install a second PTO on the other side of the transmission to run a 4,000-5,000 PSI pressure washer pump.

Any hints tips or comments welcome. Thanks.

Are you going to be using other hydraulic functions when running the washer? If not, I'd use the existing hydraulic system to power a hydraulic motor to run your pump for the washer. If you are intending on using the bucket and boom circuits I'd look at putting a belt drive hydraulic pump under the hood of your Super Duty-Northern (and other companies)sell some belt drive pumps that would probably be big enough. I think either one of these ways will be cheaper and easier than trying to add a 2nd PTO and seperate system. Maytag

I had not thought of a Hydraulic motor (actually did not know they existed). The pressure washer pumps I have looked at require 25-30 HP, and the shaft needs to turn at 1700 RPM I believe. This is a 5000 PSI pump.
I do intend to be able to use the pressure washer from the bucket ie;both need to opertate concurrently.

Thanks for the reply and suggestion.
