HDE36B Battery Powered Hydraulic Crimp Tool for HD36 Dies

The HDE36B Battery Powered Crimp Tool offers the portability of a hand tool with the stamina of a power tool! It is a hand held, self-contained, 4 ton hydraulic crimp tool that is actuated with a single squeeze of the trigger.

This tool is designed to accept the entire family of HD36 dies for crimping terminals, lugs or any other special applications. WIRE RANGE: #8 to #0 AWG in many power applications, and .750 (19.05mm) in coaxial hexagonal crimping.

Typical "HD36" Die Sets.

Hexagonal crimp dies for coaxial cable and "single indent" crimp dies for insulated terminals are available in a variety of combinations having single or double cavity design. These dies accommodate most insulated and uninsulated terminals and splices conforming to AS7928 as well as numerous proprietary configurations.

The HDE36B offers a solution where the volume of work exceeds the physical limits of a worker with hand tools, and hoses and cables are unwelcome or unsafe for the environment where the work is being performed.

The HDE36B meets the requirements of RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC.
