Greenlee Textron Inc., a Textron Inc. company, offers its Next Generation battery-powered hydraulic tools. The design of these tools includes real-time communication technology, improved ergonomics, focused on optimizing the tool’s center of gravity for the comfort of the worker, and a longer battery life supplied by an enhanced Makita platform.

Tools in the new Next Generation line include 6-, 12-, and 15-ton crimping tools, as well as cable and bolt cutters, and a 10K PSI pump with removable heads that have the capabilities to do both.

Each product in this new line of tools features Bluetooth communication technology. This allows electricians to wirelessly manage their tools, access tool history, monitor service timelines, and customize tool operation to suit their preferences. Each crimper 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. Crimpers equipped with this feature emit audible and visual alerts to notify the operator when a crimp is below specifications, giving assurance to the operator that the job was done right. Some tools are also equipped with Auto Retraction Stop (ARS) which retracts the ram just enough to prepare the tool for the next cycle, saving time and energy.
