The BernzOmatic JTH7 hose torch generates an adjustable turbo-charged swirl action flame for maximum heat output. This torch is pressure regulated and can burn in all directions. Included with the torch are a four-foot hose for improved reach, durable solid brass regulators, and a cylinder clip. It weighs 2.5 pounds. BernzOmatic backs its torch with a 1-year limited warranty.
Replacement parts -- No way.
Part of my JTH-7, the burner tube broke. Instead of supplying a part replacement I was told to buy a new torch assembly. Parts can't be sold because of liability issues. The broken part (burner base tube) is designed to break (like a fuse) so a fall impact will not transfer to the fuel tank. There is a model JT-539 that has no hose coupling. How this piece protects the fuel tank by breaking away at the end of a four foot flexible hose is beyond me.
Shame on Bernzomatic or whatever there current incarnation. I will no longer purcase any tools or accessories from this company.
This is the one to have
I wont say much here I agree with the last review. I do want to add you can use mapp gas and also i use this alot sometimes all day so I would have to say its great for a pro too.
Like most people I don't like the idea of working with a flammable source only inches away from a flame. This Benzo torch gives us flame weary folks the breathing room we desire. I don't do a ton of plumbing, mostly I do little repair jobs here and there and when I do it's usually in older homes where reaching things can often become an exercise in futility. This torch solves a lot of those problems and really allows the user to get into those often awkward ,tough to reach spots fairly easily.
Another nice thing about this torch is not having to worry about flare ups, the tank can always remain in the upright position, which is great.
The kit also comes with a handy clip that allows the user to attach the tank to a belt and keeps the regulator knob within easy reach during use.
The torch kit is well made, made of brass and heavy duty rubber, perfect for a DIYer or handyman, I wouldn't classify it as contract grade but it's pretty heavy duty nonetheless.
So far I've used it for paint removal, driveway repair, plumbing, roofing ,even cooking, it's a very useful tool that's good to have around.
