Out with the Old
Dealing with the old manual dieless tools was a pain as they had to be adjusted constantly just to keep up with the crimper tool. The old die-type tools were able to crimp a broad array and range of connectors, but were tiresome as they always required a different set of dies for each connector type and size desired, and because of the constant die changes meant dealing with severe range restrictions.
In with the New
The frustration of this era is over with the new Greenlee Hand Hydraulic Dieless Crimping Tool HK12ID. Holding this crimper puts your hands at ease with the sturdy lightweight fiberglass handles and a crimping head width of 4-3/8″, which rotates 350° allowing you to get into and navigate tight locations. This dieless tool seriously simplifies the crimping of your color coded lugs and splices, ultimately eliminating the selection and installation of dies. Additionally, the new Hand Hydraulic Crimper HK12ID tool combines the simplicity of dieless crimping with the hand hydraulic and even has a dieless indent style crimping head which never requires interchanging crimping dies. Also an innovative flip-open style crimping head gets to work, as it easily gets around large lugs and splices, and a two-speed pump provides you with the satisfaction of a rapid crimping cycle time. The Greenlee HK12ID is UL and cUL classified with several differing connector types including Anderson, Burndy, Blackburn, Ilsco, Panduit, Penn-Union, Thomas & Betts and Tyco.
