  1. Battery-powered Hydraulic Tools

    Utility tools: Sherman+Reilly, a Textron Inc. company and manufacturer of power line stringing and installation equipment, offers its Next Generation battery-powered hydraulic tools. The design of these Next Generation tools includes real-time communication technology, improved ergonomics focused on optimizing the tool’s center of gravity, and more power with an enhanced Makita battery platform. Tools in the Next Generation line include 6-ton, 12-ton and 15-ton crimping tools; cable and bolt cutters; and a 10K psi pump with removable heads that have the capabilities to do both. Each product in this line of tools features Bluetooth communication technology that allows electricians to wirelessly manage their tools. This feature provides access to tool history, monitors service timelines, and customizes tool operations to suit the worker’s preferences. Each Next Generation crimping tool is equipped with Intelli-CRIMP technology, a pressure sensor that monitors the crimping process, ensuring the correct amount of pressure is applied to each crimp. Some tools are equipped with Auto Retraction Stop (ARS), which retracts the ram just enough to prepare the tool for the next cycle, saving time and energy. In addition, there are tools with Retraction Stop Repeat (RSR). For more information about Sherman+Reilly or other products, click here to go to Utility Products’ Buyers Guide.
