Totally unnecessary purchase
« on: March 29, 2022, 01:40:11 PM »
I picked up hydraulic Wire Lug crimpers. $40 on Amazon

What a Game changer! Needed to swap out a few battery cables for the boat and when you have 4 batteries it can get expensive. I use to buy premade, to just not worry about it but they are always too long or too short.

Picked up a length of good battery cable and some new lugs cut them to length. The hydraulic crimpers are WAY better than anything else I've used to crimp, smash or vise on lug ends!

Ended up nice and neat and should be in place for a while!

I've been running a 36V TM for a while but when I changed over to the Ghost last year I had an issue with a fuse popping. After fighting with it twice during tournaments I ended up finding out it was a loose Lug. The wire looked fine but inside the crimp, the wire was floating around and came out with a simple tug  :facepalm:

Now I could use them as a tow strap. LOL  (giggle)
