A practical, cost-effective alternative to using dedicated engines to power auxiliary equipment. The MGA is the reliable, heavy-duty alternative to general purpose power takeoffs that just aren’t built for the high speeds and high torques characteristic of fire truck and emergency vehicle applications.
Installed in a midship position between the two halves of a split driveshaft, the Model MGA uses a sliding gear to shift power between the vehicle’s wheels and its own output shaft. The sliding gear is positioned by a manual, air, or vacuum powered shift mechanism.
With dual auxiliary output shafts for unsurpassed versatility, vertical, horizontal, and optional SAE-C mounting for ease of installation, and the world-famous Hale reliability, the model MGA deserves to be your choice for virtually all split-shaft gearbox applications.
