Cable Termination Gets Easier with New RIDGID® RE 6 Electrical Tool Crimp Head

August 14, 2017
The world’s most versatile cable termination tool, the RIDGID® RE 6, just got better with the addition of the RIDGID LR-60B Latching Round Die Crimp Head. The new head uses color coded 6 ton U-style dies to crimp lugs and splices from #8AWG up to 600 Kcmil (MCM) copper and 350 Kcmil (MCM) aluminum in five seconds, and is classified to UL 1976, making it an ideal choice for electricians.

The LR-60B has a slim, compact design with 360-degree head rotation that allows for access and maneuverability in tight spaces. Crimp dies quickly snap into the head, don’t require a push button or adapters to change dies, and have a quick release latching system for maximum efficiency.

“The new crimp head was developed from electrician feedback about what they need in a tool to meet their demanding work conditions,” said Gina Hartman, RIDGID Global Marketing Manager. “The LR-60B is the latest head available for the RE 6, a tool that provides interchangeable head options. Users purchase the base kit and only the head options they need for complete tool customization and job site flexibility.”

The RE 6 is a multifunctional battery-powered solution for cutting wires, crimping lugs and punching electrical boxes all with a single tool. It features a patented QuickChange System™ that incorporates a moveable collar that lets contractors quickly and easily switch between interchangeable heads. Along with the LR-60B, other heads include the SC-60C Scissor Cutter Head, the 4P-6 4PIN™ Dieless Crimp Head, the UC-60 Utility crimping head, and the Swiv-L-Punch Knockout Punch Head.
