I used a Channellock 909 for many years until one day I decided to try these comparable Kleins. I have to say I like the crimping die on the Kleins better because I get a better looking crimp on the butt connectors using the Kleins. The Channellock 909 has an extra ridge in its crimping die, so ultimately it seems to bend the butt connector the harder I squeeze. I get more control using the Kleins and better looking crimps because the Kleins don't have this extra ridge. However, I noticed the Channellocks have a sharper cutter, but the Kleins still cut pretty good despite this fact.

I also want to point out that the main crimping die I typically use is the one with the notch. On the Kleins (i.e. with the notch) it's in the front (near the cutters) while this crimping die on the Channellock is in the back (closer to the handles). What does this mean? If you think about it, the closer it is to the front, you won't have to open the handles that wide compared to if it's further to the back. That's better for me because I rather be able to crimp with one hand if all possible. Also, the closer the die is to the front, it means I can get into tighter spaces. The downsides might be you get less leverage the closer the die is to the front, but I haven't noticed any difference between the Channellocks and the Kleins in terms of crimping force needed. Also if you typically use the un-notched crimping die more, then I would say go for the Channellocks.

Either these or the Klein Journeyman's (same crimpers except the Journeyman has grips with more cushion) are the only set of basic crimpers you should ever buy. I've used these probably thousands of times on varying sizes of butt-splices, crimp caps, ring terminals etc as a car audio installer and avionics technician and they always worked great and still do! Without spending hundreds of dollars on ratcheting crimpers, nothing crimps as well as these do; not Craftsman, not Snap-on, not Matco...nothing. I've had them for about 7 years now, and used them heavily for about 3 years and feel that they work as well as they did when they were new. The cutter on these is very good; certainly not for bulk cutting or cutting heavy gauge wire but for snipping a wire here or there they work great. As a final note I wouldn't recommend using the "insulated crimping" spot for anything...I used that main "non ins" crimping area right in the middle for EVERYTHING whether it was insulated or not and it worked great; just adjust how hard you crimp according to splice/terminal size, insulated/noninsulated etc. Overall an outstanding product, don't buy something cheaper OR more expensive!

Excellent crimping tool. Heavy-duty, supplies lots of leverage. Use them all the time when working on the wiring on my vehicles, or the trailer or boat. Much better than those cheap combination strippers / crimpers that you'll find at the auto parts store. Sort of costly, but they're a lifetime purchase. And, made in the USA!

It is so easy to find a cheaper crimper, and it is so hard to spend the extra money on this one when you see the price difference. I know, I have been there.
But, if you are an electrician or do a lot of connections using crimp terminals on a daily basis...do not risk your reputation by having your crimp connections fail in order to save ten bucks or so.

The weight of the tool, the precision design of the crimping slots, the smooth non-wobbling action of the crimp, and the cutting blade that seems to last forever are what make this tool outstanding. The non-insulated slot is where the bad tools show their weakness. Klein's is machined just right to provide a good crimp in the insulated slot.
Personally, I use the non-insulated slot for every crimp unless there is a chance someone will come in contact with the terminal live. Klein's non-insulated slot with the small tooth that seats in a groove will permanently fuse the wire to the terminal with minimal effort. But, be aware you stand a good chance of exposing the live metal underneath by using the non-insulated slot.

I have tried other brands that are known for high quality, and the crimp they produce can not match this tool. I have gone behind electricians who use those other brands and applied very little force and finished their crimps during downtime at the factory I work at.

And, I can not stress enough that if you are an electrical professional do not attempt to make critical crimps with a tool that is a wire stripper, bolt cutter and crimper all in one. You will guarantee yourself frustration and you will experience rework and failures due to inadequate crimps.
