Insulated Cutting and Crimping Tools
Emerson has released the new Greenlee Gator Insulated Series of cutters and crimpers, which can help protect a professional from up to 1,000 volts.
The crimpers are UL and cUL classified with seven major brands of lugs and splices. The innovative battery-powered Gator Insulated Series of cutting and crimping tools can help reduce the operator’s field of movement and exertion, helping to improve precision and safety.
A patent-pending tri-insulation barrier impedes voltage from discharging between the head and the body of the tool. The Gator Insulated Series features a brush-guarded head aimed at helping to avoid accidental contact with conductors, and a 360-degree rotating head for improved agility in confined work spaces. The new Gator insulated tools feature a double-tap trigger option that can help prevent the unintentional operation of the tool; an enclosed impact-resistant housing to protect the tool from debris; and an over-molded grip for easy, comfortable handling and control. They are powered by an 18-volt lithium-ion 4.0-Ah Makita battery platform, which enables users to accomplish more cuts and crimps per charge.
New Gator insulated crimpers also feature Intelli-CRIMP technology. This innovative feature allows the professional to monitor each cycle of use to ensure crimping force is achieved. If the complete crimping force is not reached, the tool will notify the professional with an audible alarm and visual alert, and the OLED screen will show a description of the tool problem.
