Default PTO good for anything?

So I was flipping though the RAVE this afternoon, and I noticed that the manual describes the Power Take-Off in our transfer case, and shows the internals existing, but that it's simply capped off at the outlet. Has anyone ever been able to successfully incorporate this into anything useful? Or is it just a vestigial reminder of what Rovers used to be built for?

Well, it can drive a winch, street sweeper module, I'm pretty sure it could drive a Gatling gun too.

You have to purchase the PTO to install on the side of the t-case. Really simple to do. Bolt on a PTO and hook up a hydraulic pump and run a hyd. winch. Nothing can stop those beasties.

I haven't been out to my truck yet to look at it, but is there even enough room to attach anything there? I'm just asking because I've never actually come across anyone talking about utilizing that. Seems like it would be a big wasted opportunity if weren't useable because a cat or something is in the way.

Well crap, since I've got to get under mine this weekend I'm now going to take a look. Thanks for the added work

Not for Land Rovers they don't. Unless they just started.

The PTO bolts to the rear of the transfer case on Land Rovers, not the side.

Here's a thread that digresses in to a lot of info about hydraulic winches, including the PTO's to drive them.
How much winch for a Disco?

The only other thing I'm aware of for the LT230 is an overdrive, if it's still available, but won't fit the Disco without floor pan mods. It's called the Roverdrive.

But we already have overdrive, so would this essentially be adding a 5th gear to the standard autobox?

Ashcroft makes an underdrive that attaches to the PTO
