Doing alot of searching and FTZ and Greenlee come up quite often here.
Any opinions between the 2 brands for a DIY'r for a small project
? I'm only going to be building several cables
. Having the cables
made up in advance won't work
. Made to length as I proceed, 1 at a time, thus willing to pay for the tool.
What about the ratcheting feature? What's it's advantage for the additional cost?
Seems these range up to either 2/0 or 4/0, depending on model. Any advise on which to buy? I know that's hard to answer, but pretty much the largest load will be a bussbar with a max amp load of 300A within a couple feet of battery
bank....Windlass (50A), invertor (100A), house load (30A??) and stereo amps to be determined still. Normal battery
switching, with conductors, 3 batteries
and switches all within a couple feet of each other. Unsure how common 4/0 wires are used on a small cruiser with basic power requirements.
Read about the $80 Harbor Freight hyd crimpers, while price
is appealing, not sold
Thanks in advance.
