Huskie Tools has developed a more robust, higher-quality, inline tool. Huskie’s new Streamline battery operated compression tool (SL-ND) is the result of three years of research and development and will stand up to the most demanding of tasks that linemen face each day.

This 6-ton compression tool has a connector range for Lugs and Splices of #8-500 MCM Cu and #8-350 MCM Al, while H-Taps are up to 4/0-4/0.

Jaws for the SL-ND are forged for long life. The tool comes with an ND Jaw that is the combination of an ND and K jaw—no more switching. Two other jaws are offered for use with the SL tool, an “O” jaw and “BG” jaw. A pull-pin design makes it easy to switch between the three jaws and future jaws for the SL.

The new SL-ND tool kit comes complete with 2 BP-80s (if ordered as the SL-NDAT), Huskie’s new Lithium Ion battery, and choice of an AC or DC charger. The BP-80 allows for 20% more crimps than our BP-70E. Like all Huskie REC-style battery operated tools, the SL-ND comes with a 5 year warranty.

“Huskie ambassadors tested the SL-ND tool in the field during the Research and Development phase and were able to provide feedback that helped us with the design,” National Sales Manager Larry Kotars said. “The final product represents the same Huskie quality our customers are used to with the features they’re looking for in a new tool.
