How long can a crimper work? How long is its life?
It is not possible to make an exact forecast about how long you will use the tool. A lot depends on the intensiveness of the work, the sizes of lugs that are crimped. In accordance with the international standards, the life of a hydraulic tool is from 5000 to 10000 of crimping operations. In reality, most of KBT hydraulic tools perform from 10000 to 30000 of operations during their life. Regular and proper maintenance is also important for longer life and more effective work. Change sealing rings and add hydraulic oil on a regular basis. The fact that we give from 3 to 5 years of guarantee for our tools says a lot about the operational resource of KBT tools.
