English term or phrase: PTO (in context)
The phrase that I'm battling with from this corporate video is actually "under 40 PTO classification" regarding tractors:
"We will also be introducing two large frame Class IV models which will actually take us above the traditional under 40 PTO classification. These tractors will be promoted as “utility” tractors rather than large compacts."
I found PTO as Power-take-off or Nebenabtrieb in German, but what does the 40 refer to -- is this a "40-PS-Nebenabtrieb"? Many thanks for your suggestions!
