Default Milwaukee crimper

Does anybody have experience with the M18™ FORCE LOGIC™ 750 MCM Crimper Kit. It looks just like the Burndy Patriot that we have had a lot of trouble with. The sliding part of the head jams in the open position and needs to be pried out to start the crimp. This afternoon it made 1 crimp and refused to work again. The pump runs and the head jiggles but it would not extend. We got Burndy to swap it for a new one a few years ago but every one we have used has had this issue. I really want to try Milwaukee but I do not need another 4000$ anchor.

Youngsters ran a hundred plus through ours this spring, they never complained or asked me to clear it. I figure if they couldn't bust it new on warranty it may be around a bit. It was 250 mcm, so bigger conductor not sure. I tried a couple smaller crimps that were more for learning curve.

One word of warning, make sure you go with the 12 ton model. It uses the same U-Dies as your Burndy. The 6 ton model says it uses U-Dies, but they are slightly smaller and not compatible. I am pretty sure the 750 mcm model is the 12 ton.

I saw that in the pictures. The reviews (all 2 of them) are terrible. Just like my Burndy

I have a Milwaukee 2779-22 in my rentals and it's been out quite a bit with no complaints.

I was wrong, I needed it yesterday and 500 die was still in it. Checked work, they did lots of 500 copper and little 250. I used it on a couple 250's and it was still working fine.
And it is the little 18v, and the cable cutter was still working and both were clean and put back were the belong.

Kopr Shield however needs too improve the flavor.
