Fiber optic cable: General Machine Products (KT) LLC, a subsidiary of Klein Tools, introduces the JetStream Cable Blowing Machine (JetStream) to its line of fiber optic cable blowing equipment. From micro fiber to traditional backbone cable installation, the JetStream is adjustable to place .23 to.79 in. (6- 20 mm) cable diameters into .75 to 1.50 in. SDR (10-50 mm OD) diameter ducts. This combined with the performance and reliability of a single 32 cc hydraulic motor, makes the JetStream an excellent value.

The JetStream incorporates a double belt drive concept, powered by a supplied power pack with oil cooler. Backed by the latest in servo control technology, the JetStream provides a secure cable grip with precise torque and speed control to propel cable safely and securely through the duct in either forward or reverse direction. The pushing force can also be adjusted to suit the cable stiffness.

With easy-to-use, ergonomic controls for one-person operation, the JetStream's electronic monitoring system provides read-outs of speed and distance, plus includes the security of an emergency stop capability.
