 |  Kate Wade  |  ,

Greenlee, a part of Emerson’s professional tools portfolio, has introduced the EK1550SLX 15-Ton Crimper, a pistol-grip-style crimping tool that is 15% lighter compared to Greenlee’s existing Kearney-style models. It features a new C-head design with optimized weight balance for overall improved ergonomics.

Designed for crimping large-capacity conductor and connectors in overhead and underground applications, the 15T Crimper crimps up to 1500 kcmil copper and 1250 kcmil aluminum lugs and splices. It is compatible with all industry-standard U and P die configurations, eliminating the need to switch dies based on the job.

Weighing less than 18 pounds with battery, the 15T Crimper also has 350-degree head rotation to access tight spaces with ease and a new built-in alignment guide to help ensure a quality crimp. The integrated Intelli-Crimp System and real-time feedback OLED info center maximize productivity and battery longevity and provide instant tool performance metrics.
