State of the art! SWA’s battery-operated crimp tool launched

SWA’s new advanced Hydraulic Crimp Tool is packed with all the features needed to ensure a perfect job every time.

It’s a product designed with ease of use firmly in mind, offering auto cut-off when optimum crimping pressure is reached, a 180-degree rotatable head and an ergonomic grip. Weighing in at only 3.3kg, the cordless tool comes with a pair of high-capacity 18v Bosch lithium batteries. There is even a built-in LED torch light and a useful battery level indicator.

Designed to complement SWA’s extensive current range of crimping tools, the new hydraulic tool is suitable for copper tube terminals from 10mm2–240mm2 and is supplied with a box of 11 hex crimp die sets spanning that range of sizes.

The tool, which is supplied in a sturdy plastic carry case, also has its own battery charger. The SWA order code is BCT10240.

Festool Unplugged - A New Generation of Independence

5.2Ah batteries – work for 25% longer

The improved battery range sees all 15V and 18V batteries increasing from 4.2Ah to 5.2Ah, meaning the tradesman can work 25% longer between charges. This combined with brushless EC-TEC motor technology ensures optimal power usage, greater efficiency and longer tool life.

“With our cordless range, we are focusing on increased intelligence, increased efficiency, and longer tool life” explains Festool product manager Patrick Haußmann. To this end, Festool is focusing on the intelligent interplay between its tried-and-tested brushless EC-TEC motor technology and the latest cell technologies.

Festool offers tradesmen a secure investment alongside sustainable compatibility – as Haußmann explains, ” This even applies across systems for older battery packs with NiCd and NiMH cells, which can be used in current-generation Li-ion tools.”

PowerSelect – maximum buying flexibility at no extra cost

The new PowerSelect offers three different buying variants providing flexibility in configuring tools to suit specific cordless needs.

The Basic Version includes the cordless tool without battery packs or charger, but still comes in a high quality systainer and with core accessories.

The Plus Version includes the cordless tool, systainer and core accessories and comes with the battery packs and charger.

The Set Version offers the same as the Plus Version but with added extras and accessories.

The entire Festool Unplugged cordless range is available at specialist retailers from January 2015. Further information is available at and all information about SERVICE all-inclusive is available at
