The Greenlee EK1240L11 Gator Battery-Powered 12-Ton L Series Crimping Tool with 120V Charger is the ultimate crimping tool accompanied with three crimping head choices including the industry “U” type dies with a 1.20″ opening, a 1.65″ opening, and a Kearney PH2 type die. The head’s design results in a lower tool weight, improving upon the product’s durability. In order to prove it, this metal crimper has been tested at up to 50,000 crimp cycles. Additionally, it features a two-speed pump that reduces cycle times, and contains a state of the art 18 volt lithium-ion battery. The lithium ion battery aids in further reducing cycle time and provides up to 70% more cycles per charge.
The Gator EK1240L11 is a pistol grip style crimper which utilizes a 3.0 amp hour battery. An exclusive addition to this Greenlee Gator is a pressure monitoring option that alerts the operator if the crimping force of the tool does not meet the specifications, which is a great feature as it assists in detecting and calibrating the proper crimp force. Currently, the Greenlee Gator EK1240L11 is the only crimping tool that features an automatic retraction stop, this is made for the tool to automatically retract the ram just enough after a crimp, allowing the tool to be moved into position for the next crimp cycle. The over molded tacky grip on the tool provides a comfortable grip and feel and the lightweight forward angled pistol handle provides an improved tool balance with a 360° rotating head. Two other exclusive inclusions that Greenlee added to the EK1240L11 were an integral LED light to illuminate the work area, and bio-degradable hydraulic oil, which is just one way that Greenlee stays “Green”. All Greenlee crimping tools, except the EK210L and EK1240KL, are UL and cUL classified with 7 brands of color coded lugs and splices. The covered head models have two layers of PVC, approximately 3/16′ thick, and the outer layer is black with an accompanying red inner layer.
The Greenlee EK1240L11 crimping die style is a quad-point die less, with a crimping force of 24,000 pounds and a length of 16-1/4”. It is compatible with the Greenlee 52176 and 52177 batteries.
