Transmission with PTO provision - Is it stronger?

Somebody on one of the other topic sections mentioned that a transmission with the PTO provision is build stronger than a standard transmission and and therefore would be a good option to add. I will be towing a boat (6000#) and wondered if this would be added insurance. I have ordered a F250 CC with the V10 and still have time to add it if it is beneficial.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

I believe the PTO is in the transfer case and not the transmission (might want to double check me on this one). If you have no plans to use the PTO, I would not bother ordering one.

The standard transfer case is tough and stands up well to any towing demands that you may place on it.

About the PTO: I was told......

Hi!
I just ordered a new 250 6.0 from Van Bortel in NY and
the good fellow there (!) Jeff, says *he* has been told
by factory guys that the PTO trans has heavier clutches
and bearings. I tend to believe him as he's been great with
his help to me in my choices and gets an A++ from me on this.

I will be towing occasionally, but not a lot. I sat on the
fence about ordering this since I thought being heavier-duty
would be a good thing, so I ordered my truck with it.

Does anyone else know any more about this transmission?

Thanks,
PSD Six-Point-Oh!

All the ZF 5-speed trans have a PTO cover on both sides of the trans near the bottom and yes the ZF is the stronger trans.

at my work i drive a 350 flatbed tow rig w/pto, i'll get under it tomorow and see what i can find out.

i can tell you that it is a 5-spd stick, so 4w/od, and i can shift through all the gears in about 30 yards because its a diesel...oh, and i have to push the clutch to operate the PTO **** to run the hydrolics on the bed.

Casey is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
The 4R100 with the PTO had heavier duty parts, but they put the heavier duty parts in all TorqShifts, with or without the PTO option.

well i forgot to check our tow truck, but i thought about it, the pto cant come off the transfer case, our truck is two wheel drive, and besides that it would mean leaving the tranny in gear to use the pto. this might make the truck roll away...

i also wanted to add that this truck is an 89, and has only been through one clutch, prob cause it is a diesel and cant even turn fast enough to burn it.
