The PATRIOT IN-LINE PATMD6-14V hydraulic crimping tool from FCI-BURNDY Products offers more crimps per charge, ergonomic design, and a 14.4V Nickel Metal-Hydride (Ni-MH) battery.

Offering trouble-free operation, the BURNDY IN-LINE PATMD6-14V tool incorporates a high speed hydraulic pump generating 6 tons of crimping force. The battery actuated hydraulic crimper provides a consistent, reliable connection on a range of copper and aluminum terminals and splices, overhead taps, full tension splices and dead ends. Its high-capacity, Ni-MH battery eliminates voltage depression, maximizing the number of crimps per charge. The BURNDY IN-LINE PATMD6-14V tools feature a 350º rotate able head for operation in virtually any position.

The BURNDY IN-LINE PATMD6-14V tool features interchangeable MD6 series jaws capable of using "W" and "X" style dies in the permanent D3 crimping groove. The tool's audible "pop-off" crimp indicator provides a consistent, reliable connection every time. The BURNDY IN-LINE PATMD6-14V tool is supplied with a durable high-impact formed carrying case, battery charger and two high capacity 14.4 volt 2.6 AH batteries.

Each BURNDY IN-LINE PATMD6-14V crimping tool uses standard BURNDY dies and off-the-shelf BURNDY connectors available worldwide, and comes with a three year limited warranty on the tool and a lifetime warranty on the INFINITY DRIVE.


Protecting High Mast Lights from Birds

Pennwell web 210 296

How do you stop birds damaging your lighting equipment, especially on tall masts which require special equipment to lower their heads? Sniff'n'Stop has worked well for years as a long lasting, cost-effective wildlife deterrent but it seemed to be less effective with birds, because the birds' noses are some distance from their feet (the Air Gap Problem). But birds don't like sticky feet! The makers of Sniff'n'Stop developed Sticky Bird Deterrent; simple but most effective.

It's designed to stay sticky for years. When birds stand on it, their reaction is to remove it with their only available tools, their beaks, which are right by their noses. Yuck! The bird is not coming to this inviting spot again. Sticky Bird Deterrent does not harm the birds but it does deter them from staying where it is placed. Lately, reports have been received saying that it has worked beautifully (and inexpensively) for High Mast Lights on highways.
