Ridgid®: Metal, PEX Press Tool

October 21, 2013
Metal, PEX Press ToolLightweight (6.2 pounds) and cordless, the RP 200-B press tool has been added to the press tool lineup. The inline-designed tool, complemented with a 270-degree rotating barrel, offers contractors a fast and reliable way to join copper and stainless steel tubing (½-1¼ inches in diameter) and PEX tubing (3/8-1½ inches in diameter) in hard-to-reach spaces. It produces a hydraulic ram output of 5,400 pounds and can make connections in 4-5 seconds. It also comes standard with two lithium batteries that can produce more than 200 presses per charge for jobsite efficiency. Larger-capacity batteries are also available and can achieve more than 400 presses per charge to maximize uptime. The press tool can operate in temperatures ranging from 15-122°F and is compatible with all of the Viega Compact Series press tool attachments, including Compact Series ProPress® Jaws for copper tubing, Compact Jaws for Pureflow®, and C1 ProPress® ring kit. The RP 200-B also comes with a carrying case.
