The REC-558U was designed to squeeze commonly used service entrance connectors, including lugs, sleeves, H-Taps and C-Taps. The rapid advance feature allows the operator quicker compression cycles. In addition to the rapid advance feature, it also has incorporated an electronic counter that will allow a service technician to read the number of compression cycles the tool has made. Also, the new tool housing has been reinforced to improve durability during heavy field use.

A factory pre-set bypass cartridge assures a six ton compression every time. The REC-558U accepts either “W”, “O” or “X” type dies. The D3 nest die comes standard with the tool. Always consult your connector manufacturer for proper die/connector combinations.

The REC-558U will accept the optional 25CAT cutter head attachment. Quick release pins allow the operator to change between compression and cutter head in one minute with no springs or pins to lose.
