By Alyssa Dalton
June 27, 2012 – Burndy has designed the Y60LW, a 43-lb (without stand) remote hydraulic tool to install transmission and distribution connectors and sleeves. The Y60LW is designed to be light weight and portable for increased maneuverability and will operate from any 10,000 psi hydraulic source with the proper oil capacity. The Y60LW uses the standard and wide “L” dies designed for copper and aluminum code cables, ACSR and aerial conductor. Featuring a jaw opening, single acting ram with heavy duty return spring and removable die cap, the Y60LW provides 60 tons of output force. A base stand is included.
