I'm looking for a reasonably priced crimper to handle 1/0 cable and crimps....

But also, reasonably priced crimp style 1/0 to 1/0 pins.

I'm seeing crimpers going like $150 or more, and pin terminals for no less than $7 each. 

If I have to pay that much, I'll just solder the ends of my cables, to make them way easier to insert and connect to amps, splitters, etc.

 

Btw, if I were running a shop, I could see spending big $ on a nice hydraulic crimper... And who cares if the connectors are $10 each, if the customers paying for them anyway.

But I need a better deal on this stuff as a poor DIY kind of guy.

 

Any suggestions ?

Well, I think that would be the cleanest way to hook up amps and such.....

But with these ferrules do you still have to crimp them on ?

Got to go slow when using it , it is a cheap tool but mine came a o-ring kit to fix it if u blow out a seal. After crimping 1/0 I would follow up with the next size smaller to make it very snug.

Get the 16 ton one for 0 gauge IMO. The smaller ones are a bit light in the loafers
