Lightweight Crimper Prevents Fatigue


Redesigned to meet the growing market need for a smaller, lighter, and more ergonomic IN-LINE  tool platform is the BURNDY PATRIOT IN-LINE  series of tools.


The PATMD-LW series weighs just 6.7 lb. and is only 18.70 in. in height. This represents a 14% reduction in weight and an 11% overall length reduction compared to the current PATMD series; offering unrivaled ergonomics and comfort. Redesigned, robust jaws featuring proprietary locking tabs and a spring release pin, simplify the jaw change out process. There is also an added layer of safety, as the jaws stay retained in the tool when the release pin is activated. The crimp jaws accept standard BURNDY “W” and “X” style crimping dies.


The series features an enhanced safety trigger lock to avoid accidental actuation; perfect balance to reduce strain, preventing fatigue and injury; and now includes an integrated LED light to assist in dimly lit areas.


The PATMD-LW is powered by Makita Li-Ion batteries for long-lasting power and will accept multiple Makita battery platforms (2.0Ah through 5.0Ah). It will be offered with a choice of either 3.0Ah or 5.0Ah batteries.
