The Burndy Patriot (PAT750-18V) tool is designed for the contractor, utility, and telecommunications markets. With a faster crimp time, improved ergonomic design, and an 18V Nickel Metal-Hydride (NiMH) battery, the tool is a one-hand, self-contained crimping solution. It features the latest engineering technology with a patented pump, transmission and piston design. FCI’s self-contained hydraulic tool provides a consistent, reliable connection up to 750 kcmil and a quieter, more efficient operation. With its 360° head rotation design, the tool head can operate in virtually any position. The tool has a 12-ton output force, an audible “pop-off” and visual crimp indicator, and an ergonomically balanced design to lessen fatigue. Its high capacity 18V NiMH battery eliminates voltage depression, maximizing the number of crimps per charge.
