Greenlee introduces new line of pressing tools

Greenlee Textron Inc., a Textron Inc. company, has recently launched a new line of Gorilla™ pressing tools designed for joining pipe safely by eliminating the need for an open flame and a hot work permit on the jobsite. The new Gorilla™ pressing tool line features two separate tool platforms: the inline battery pressing tool (INLNPRESS-TOOL19kN) and the pistol grip battery powered pressing tool (PSTLPRESS-TOOL32KN). Both tools quickly press watertight connections in three to four seconds. The inline pressing tool has a fitting capacity of 1-1/2â€? (38.1mm) on PEX and 1-1/4â€? (31.8mm) on copper and stainless steel, and the pistol grip pressing tool has a fitting capacity of 2â€? (50.8mm) on PEX and 4â€? (101.6mm) on copper and stainless steel.


These new pressing tools utilize intelligence for accurate pressing and are designed with autostop technology, which automatically stops the piston when the optimal force is reached, sealing the fitting properly. The lightweight design, 350-degree rotating head, and LED work light allow for both products to be used in dark tight spaces.
