The DEWALT U-Type Died Crimping Tool (DCE300) delivers a 12-ton crimping force for UL classified crimps using compatible connectors from leading manufacturers. It accepts U Type dies from all brands and has a capacity from #8 – 750 MCM Cu /Al. A 270° pivoting head allows the crimper to maneuver in tight spaces while forward and reverse trigger switches offer convenient one-handed operation. The tool features Crimp Connect® software, an onboard intelligence system integrated into the tool that provides detailed reports of date, time, force, and successfully completed cycles of the crimps completed by the tool. Crimp Connect® software also reports on tool calibration and service history. An integrated LED interface is used to communicate power on or power off, battery state of charge, cycle completion, and if recalibration or service is needed. A bright LED light helps to illuminate the crimping area when working in dark spaces. The tool also includes attachment points and a shoulder strap for convenience when transporting around the jobsite.
