Has anyone used the PTO on the 2011 or 2012?

Good morning Guys,

Can anyone share their experience with the new PTO option on the 2011 or 2012 F350? I am curious about its uses and if there is any value in it for me? I plan to use a plow on my truck and wonder how it might help me with that?
Thanks
Dave

We are adding a backup generator to the house, and I considered ordering the PTO option to power the generator.
I ultimately decided I would rather use propane to power the gen so we didn't get the PTO, but its one good use of the PTO.
Sorry i don't know about the snow plow applications.

Its more of a provision for dump bodys or trucks that need a PTO to equipment. Most ever plow set up is now self contained with electric motor and hydraulic power pack mounted to the plow frame. If you were going to purchase a sander/salter they make them hydrostatic/PTO driven, that could be an option. Really I couldn't see the option being justified for just driving a plows hydraulics. Then again, thats my two cents.

The diesel version (live drive) might work, I'm not sure. But I would not use a PTO driven pump for plowing. You will see too many rpm's too often. The PTO on my 2011 F550 runs through the computer, and the parking brake must be set to use it.

I too thought I read something about it only being used while standing still.
