JET JWS Series Web Strap Hoists

Jet Web Strap Hoist

The new JET JWS Series web strap hoists are designed for a wide range of lifting, pulling and holding operations. Some typical applications include releasing tension of power lines, holding materials together, installing fences, pulling pipe, and straightening poles in plant maintenance, public utilities, construction, automotive garages, farming, and other industries.
The JET JWS Series web strap hoists come in single or double pull models with capacities of 1 or 1-1/2 tons. They feature an open housing design for cleaning and daily inspections, corrosion-resistant stainless steel springs, bronze bushings, drum shafts, self-lubricating bearings and drop-forged steel hooks.

JET JWS Series Web Strap Hoists

An isolated ratcheting gear, oversized strap guide, and bottom block assembly guides the web strap onto the drum and prevents binding. A friction brake and double interlocking pawls allow for micro-inching when lowering loads. The fiberglass handles are certified to withstand 15kV/1 ft. for 1 minute. The hoists’ 1:1 gear ratio  provides up to 1-1/2-inch lift per 45 degree handle stroke. The hoists’ large, drop-forged, alloy steel swivel hooks rotate 360° and are equipped with steel safety latches.

The JET JWS Series web strap hoists comply with ANSI/ASTME B30.21 standards and are backed by a lifetime warranty as well as JET RED Assurance.

The Bottom Line

Jet really gets a couple things right on their new Jet JWS Web Strap Hoists. The fiberglass handle is a must – linemen use this class of tool frequently and it’s useless if it conducts electricity. Web binding is a major concern. It’s frustrating any time, but particularly when working at height. Jet handles this by isolating the gearing and integrating a strap guide, but at the same time leaves the housing open. This makes cleaning and inspection easier, making it an easy upgrade over basic models.
