Pretty darn nice crimper that's affordable

I was hunting a good hydraulic crimper to do battery cables and I found this one on Amazon, peeked at it there but went to the electrical distributor who posted the Amazon offering to see what kind of company is behind this product.  I was delighted that this is no shadow company, true support and a warranty that is outstanding....

Temcoindustrial.com   In Freemont, CA  (Tower Electric Motor Company) has this crimper built in China to their specs and it does a great job with battery cables , compression dies are accurately sized for the crimp connectors we use for solar battery cable ends. Die sets include all the AWG sizes  8ga  up to 4/0 and MCM sizes 250 to 600 MCM in copper and aluminum terminals. Very well built and rugged, very well supported, a company that cares about their image! 

Temcoindustrial is is an electric motor supply house and does not have a lot of solar applicable items but they do have a large amount of terminals, and some wire, electrolytic capacitors, and such.
They do accept small sales and have an online store as well as a presence at Amazon and FeeBay, also phone orders are acceptable 

At $95.00 ITS A STEAL!  With 5 year warranty!  I've done hundreds of crimps with this one and no fails!

    David, thank you for the review.

    You are welcome to supply link(s) to the vendor/product (EBay links usually go bad quickly--Search terms for EBay may work better).

    BB,

    Thanks, I didn't want to step on toes here as I do know that wind-sun does sell the hammer crimper. This one is a tad bit different.

    Google Amazon & Flea-bay search term:     Temco TH0005

    I had said it would do 8ga. , I stand corrected it's rated 6 ga.   To. 600MCM
    Ive done dozens of 4/0 and some 250MCM and 350MCM with this tool
