About Crimping Tools
Burndy® is a leading manufacturer of hand tools, mechanical tools and compression tools that work well with their line of cable lugs. There are drastic differences between each tool so be sure to discuss your application before purchasing online.
You can choose the most basic hand tools that strip insulation and crimp terminals as big as 10 AWG. Then you can upgrade to a hydraulic tool that gives you more pounds of force but it’s still operated by hand. Then, if you’re crimping on a regular basis, you can upgrade to a push button battery operated crimping tool.
The battery operated tools require dies that you can choose from before purchasing. Each die is associated with a particular AWG size and you will need all of the dies to match the AWG sizes you’ll be working with.
