Ratchet hand tools

BURNDY introduces MRE 10-22B and MRE 10-22NV ergonomic, full cycle ratchet hand tools.

Manchester, N.H., April 4, 2011—BURNDY, a manufacturer and provider of connector solutions to the industrial, energy, construction, telecommunication, petrochemical, data center, and transportation industries, introduces the new MRE10-22B and MRE10-22NV HYTOOL. These ergonomic full cycle ratchet tools provide a complete positive crimp each time. The ergonomic comfort grip handles reduce operator fatigue during continuous use.

Each tool is for use with BURNDY insulated and non-insulated small HYDENT terminals, #10-22 AWG. The MRE10-22B crimps un-insulated (bare) terminals and splices; the MRE10-22NV crimps nylon and vinyl insulated terminals and splices. The dies are color coded and stamped with the conductor size to provide an easy match of the die and proper BURNDY terminal or splice.

The ratchet mechanism does not allow the handles to be opened until the full cycle is completed, unless the emergency release lever is actuated, providing for a completed crimp before a connector can be removed from a tool. The MRE10-22 series tools produce a UL Listed and CSA Certified connection when used with the recommended BURNDY® terminals and splices. The MRE10-22 tools have a five year limited warranty.
