In this episode of Mark’s Cool Tools Mark shows us the new line of Gorilla™ pressing tools from Greenlee. They are designed for joining pipes safely by eliminating the need for an open flame and a hot work permit on the jobsite.
The new Gorilla™ pressing tool 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 three to four 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 1-1/2” (38.1mm) on PEX and 1-1/4” (31.8mm) on copper and stainless steel, and the pistol grip pressing tool has a fitting capacity of 2” (50.8mm) on PEX and 4” (101.6mm) 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.
The new pressing tools utilize intelligence for accurate pressing and are designed with autostop technology. This automatically stops the piston when the optimal force is reached, sealing the fitting properly. Precise diagnostics and pressure monitoring ensure appropriate specifications for each fitting. Built into both tools is a quickstop feature that creates an immediate stop to the piston once the trigger is released safeguarding the user’s hands from pinch points. The 350-degree rotating head, lightweight design, and LED work light allow for both products to be used in dark tight spaces.
