The RP 330 pressing tool is offered in a corded (RP 330-C) and battery (RP 330-B) version.Both the battery and corded pressing tools make quick connections, with the battery-operated model utilizing an 18-volt lithium-ion battery to allow more presses per battery charge. A new gear ratio allows both models of the tool to perform better in cold temperatures. The new gear ratio also aids the battery-operated model to produce more presses per charge. Strategically placed rubber bumpers protect the tool during rough handling and inadvertent drops. A three- or six-jaw kit is offered with both tool versions. The RP 330 presses 1/2- to 4-inch joints (copper, stainless steel, and PEX tubing) and is compatible with all of the manufacturer’s standard pressing jaws. The battery model includes two batteries and a charger. The pressing tool has a 270-degree jaw rotation and a flattened top for accessibility in confined areas. User-friendly indicator and troubleshooting lights provide end users with easy-to-understand indications of the tool’s performance.
