Tranny with a PTO

I've looked and cant find it, so I ask.
I want a transmission with a PTO to drive a compressor. Is there such a thing? It will be behind a 100hp Perkins, or something similar. Ideas?
Thanks.

If you can't find a pto equipped tranny have you thought about a belt driven power take off? If you can mount it to your motor?

I have ran trucks where the transmission mostly older automatics did not have a cutout for the gear driven pto which instead of the ac compressor if I remember right the pto pump could sit. It has a clutch system as well so when you did not need it the pully would free spool as a ac compressor system would on a motor.

There are many transmissions with PTOs available. Eg Twindisc MG5061. Hydraulic PTO can be used to drive anything - commonly used for power steering, pot hauling etc. Should be fine for a compressor.
