Hydraulic Pumps for Power Take-offs on Ford Trucks
Configuring a pump for Ford trucks with a power take-off (PTO) can oftentimes be tricky due to the limited clearance around the PTO and transmission. Because of the space constraint, large, direct mount pumps are usually not available to use.
Fortunately, Muncie Power Products offers numerous pump options compatible with our PTOs for Ford trucks—including pumps with specifically modified housings to ensure a fit.
Below is a list of the available pumps and which PTOs and trucks they are applicable to for Ford transmissions.
PF SERIES GEAR PUMP
The PF Series pumps are the most common pump used with Muncie Power PTOs used on Ford trucks. These pumps provide the ultimate performance in a small packaging and are ideal for applications requiring low flow. Our PF Series pumps are available in 11 different models, ranging in flow from 1–8.7 GPM at 1,000 RPM. Most common applications for the PF4 Series include aerial utility trucks, tree chippers, small refuse trucks, lift gates, roll-offs, and snow plows. The PF4 Series pump is compatible with all our PTOs for Ford and can be used on both 4x4 and 4x2, but pump size may be limited on a gas 4x4 application.
PH SERIES GEAR PUMP
The PH Series gear pumps are available for the FR6Q Series, F20 Series, and F22 Series PTOs. The F22 PTO will use the standard PH pump housing, while the F20 Series and FR6Q Series PTOs require modifications to the pump rear cover to allow compatibility due to available space. The modified PH series design also includes the elimination of side ports and the removal of nearly ½" of material from the suction side of the housing—provide increased clearance of the floorboard. The PH Series pump is available in six different models, ranging in flow from 3–11 GPM at 1,000 RPM. The PH Series pumps are only available to be used on 4x2 chassis and are commonly used on wreckers, bucket trucks, cranes, snow plows, and car carriers.

PK SERIES GEAR PUMP
On Ford transmissions, the PK Series gear pump is compatible with all PTOs for Ford, but the standard gear housing will be replaced with the S Series gear housing for use on F20 Series and FR6Q Series PTOs. Our PK Series is available with three models at 6, 13, and 17 GPM at 1,000 RPM. The PK Series pumps are only applicable to 4x2 chassis only and are often used on cranes, service trucks, cable lifts, wreckers, car carriers, snow plows, and roll-offs.
OPTIMUM W SERIES PUMP
The Optimum W Series pump is available for use only with our FR6Q Series PTO on F-650 and F-750 trucks. This robust design allows higher operating pressures than typical pumps and a modified housing allows it to fit with these Ford trucks. Optimum W Series’ robust design allows higher operating pressures than typical gear pump applications. The Optimum W Series is available in eight models, ranging from 6–21 GPM at 1,000 RPM. This pump is often used on material handling, mining, construction, and agriculture applications requiring higher pressures.
PT2-025 SERIES BENT AXIS PISTON PUMP
The PT2-025 bent axis piston pump is a high efficiency pump designed for applications requiring higher pressures and low flow rates. This pump requires the “UU” output code and is only applicable with the F20 Series and F22 Series PTOs in one model: the 6.75 GPM at 1,000 RPM. The PT2-025 Series is often used on cranes, high pressure hoists, and grapple trucks.
S Series Hoist pump
Historically, larger pump models have not been compatible with PTOs on Ford trucks due to a lack of space to mount a large pump. With the new 10R140 Series transmission, on model year 2023 and beyond Ford F-650 and F-750 diesel trucks, an S Series hoist pump can now be used in tandem with our F22 Series PTO. The S Series hoist pump is designed specifically for use on small single or tandem axle dump trucks. The S Series pumps feature a roller bearing design and can be air, level or cable shifted, and ranges from 6–15 GPM at 1,000 RPM.
It is critical to take the utmost care when configuring a hydraulic pump for your application, and we highly recommend consulting our customer service team to ensure the proper pump is chosen.
