The FCI-Burndy Patriot PAT46-18V battery-actuated crimping tool provides 15 tons of force and a 2-inch jaw opening. The new crimper, says the manufacturer, allows installation of a large variety of splices, taps and terminals. The crimper features a C-Head design with 335 degrees of head rotation and a retractable assist handle under the head. An audible “pop off” indicator signals a successful crimp. The unit is powered with an 18-volt Ni-MH battery.
