BURNDY® from Hubbell Incorporated introduces the new PATRIOT® PAT81K2 series of dieless hydraulic crimping tools. These 18V lithium-ion battery powered crimpers feature BURNDY® 4-POINT® dieless crimping with unique guides to provide increased reliability.
The new latch head design of the PAT81K2 series offers users a lightweight solution with the same reliability as its predecessor. Reducing the weight by 10% improves the tool’s ergonomic balance. It also features an over-molded handle for comfort and improved grip. This new head design is also offered as a remote tool, the Y81K2MBH, providing the same crimping capabilities.
The dieless system with expanded range-taking capabilities assists in crimping #8 AWG-1000 kcmil connectors. Interchangeable guides ensure connector alignment, reducing the chance of misloading and tool damage. The easy-to-install guides lock into the frame of the latch head, allowing for faster crimping and improved productivity.
Additional features of the PATRIOT® battery hydraulic crimper include 6 tons of crimping power, 360-degree head rotation, and mechanical ram release to conserve battery power.
Installers trust the BURNDY® brand for high-quality, innovative connector and tooling solutions. The PAT81K2 and Y81K2MBH tools are perfect for use in commercial and industrial, oil and gas, renewable energy, telecommunications, and transportation applications.
