JET showed its range of JPNX ratchet lever hoists. The hoists are available in half, three quarter, 1.5 and 3 US ton capacities. They come as standard with 5 or 15ft lifts. Custom lengths are also available.

The hoists feature all-steel construction, including a rugged one-piece cast handle. A Weston-type automatic brake system allows precise load spotting or disengagement of tension on the load. The brake system is completely enclosed to protect against oil, grease, water and other contaminants.

JET said single-handed operation makes the heavy duty lever hoists easy to use and control. Their lever pull range is 40 to 84lbs to lift a full load. A freewheeling feature provides for quick and easy load attachment.

The lever hoists also feature permanently lubricated gears, and are equipped with a premium 100-grade low-wear chain that resists abrasion, JET added. Drop-forged safety hooks swivel 360 degrees for easy rigging.
