      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

Lots of ways of doing this. One way would be a front mount PTO off the front crankshaft (runs anytime the engine runs) and the other off the transmission (can be disengaged/engaged with the clutch). Lots of cement mixers in my area at least up through the 80's had front mount PTO's for the mixer drum with the big spacing between the grille and bumper. Autocar was easy for this as the radiator was mounted high if I recall and a straight shot with the shaft from the pump to the crank was not that hard.

Good luck!

I have noticed that the front mount is still used for the garbage trucks in our city too.
