Company: Greenlee Textron Inc., a Textron Inc. company
Product: Gorilla™ pressing tool line
Description: This 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 3-4 seconds. The tools can be used while a system is still wet, unlike with soldering, so the contractor does not have to drain the system and wait for it to dry before pressing. The inline pressing tool has a fitting capacity of 1 ½ inch (38.1 mm) on PEX and 1 ¼ inch (31.8 mm) on copper and stainless steel. The pistol-grip pressing tool has a fitting capacity of 2 inches (50.8 mm) on PEX and 4 inches (101.6 mm) on copper and stainless steel. The tools have a patented twist and release pin, making jaw exchange even easier. The kits come with four jaws for the inline and six for the pistol grip.
