Kenworth now offers the Cummins ISX11.9 engine with a rear-engine power take-off (REPTO) for selected vocational applications. The use of the Cummins ISX11.9 with a REPTO can eliminate the need for a front-mounted or transmission-mounted power take-off, says Kenworth, while simplifying charge-air-cooler and radiator designs. This option, for Kenworth T800 and W900S models, is suited for vocational applications, says Kenworth, such as concrete ready mix, construction, crane,  mining, oil-well field service, refuse hauler and wrecker service. The Cummins ISX11.9 with a REPTO is capable to 466 pounds-feet of continuous torque and a maximum rating of 520 pounds-feet of torque when used for intermittent load applications.
