Customer reviews for Lug/Cable Crimping Tool

Lug/Cable Crimping Tool

The KH538 has a durable spring-loaded mechanism that holds terminals and lugs in place. Delivers 1400-1800 lbs. (635-815 kg) pull-out resistance (terminal to cable). Deep throat for easy insertion of terminal/lug fitted on cable end. Wide base for stability - excellent for welding to a bumper of fleet service truck or for bolting to a bench.

This tool is practical and simple to use; it looks cheap (being made in China), but does what you want it to do.
I like the way it holds the lug so you don't have to worry about it moving when you wind up to hammer away.
Pros: Easy to Use, Strong
Cons: No Instructions

This was a site to store purchase. The crimper arrived in a timly manner and in good condition. This rugged tool performs well and will probably last a long time. I should have purchased one sooner.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Sturdy, Strong, Long-Lasting

I recently bought a Lincoln Welding cable crimping tool from Home Depot. It's a simple tool to use and it enabled me to easily crimp lugs onto 1/0 battery cable for my 2.5 ton Army truck. The resulting cables were able to handle the 1,700 cold cranking amps at 24 volts my batteries can deliver. An inexpensive tool that works great!
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Effective
