Semi trucks are versatile tools and many functions of these trucks require them to use accessories like blowers and dump trailers. The truck can power this equipment independently but most stock trucks don’t have a means to connect the equipment to the truck. This is where a wet kit comes in. Trucks with a power take off (PTO) use a hydraulic pump assembly called a wet kit to power these accessories. Wetline kits are available in various sizes for different applications and it is important to match the kit you are using with its intended application. A tractor without a wet kit is limited to van trailers and flatbeds while trucks with a wet kit are much more versatile and can be used in hardier, more demanding applications over simple hauling. In fact, for most fleets, a wet kit is required equipment for every unit.
