The Vestil WTJ-2 truck-mounted jib crane is a welded-steel, manual cable winch-operated, 360-degree crane with a telescoping boom for lifting loads into the bed of a pickup truck. The telescoping boom offers a longer horizontal reach than jib cranes with a single-length boom. It has a load capacity of 1000 lbs. with the boom retracted and a capacity of 500 lbs. with the boom fully extended. A manual cable winch with a 1/4″ cable lifts loads up and down, and a hydraulic hand pump rotates the boom vertically. The jib crane’s boom can rotate 360 degrees around the mast. The crane includes one grab hook, one chain slot lock, and one sling hook with a latch.
The overall height of the crane, from the bottom of the mast to the top of the boom when the boom is perpendicular to the mast, is 56”. The boom extends from 32-3/4” to 49-1/4”, and the boom’s vertical reach ranges from 0” to 105” with the boom fully extended and from 13” to 90-1/2” with the boom retracted. The base has a height of 12-1/2”, and the mounting plate’s dimensions are 10-1/2” x 10-1/2”. The crane weighs 125 lbs. Some vehicles may require additional backing or stiffener plates to be installed in order to provide sufficient support for the crane.
Jib cranes are used to lift a variety of materials in industrial, commercial, and military settings. Jib cranes consist of a single vertical mast, a cable winch, and a horizontal boom. The winch may be hand-operated or electric. The boom may be telescoping (extendable) or single-length, and it may or may not be able to rotate vertically. Jib cranes can typically rotate up to 360 degrees around the base, though some jib cranes may rotate less than that. They may be mounted on the floor, a wall, the back of a pickup truck or van, or another sturdy surface. Some jib cranes are stationary, while others can move along a track.
