The ACO203XL Novopress Pressing Tool is a Bluetooth model which allows you to connect your smartphone to this device to download any pressing data, pressing history or any servicing requirements.
This tool here will press from 15mm up to 108mm. It standardly runs an M-series slimline Milwaukee battery. The kit comes standard with a 2.0 amp hour battery, but you can specify any size battery you’d like.
Unique features of this tool are: A slim handpiece which is easy to navigate into difficult, complex installations. The XL also comes with a rotatable head and also has an optional backstroke limitation of 40mm to make presses from 15mm up to 54mm quicker and easier. This tool also has a unique case which holds all of the heads from 15mm up to 54mm, with an additional case being required for the larger pressing heads.
The total weight of this case is just 23 kilos, and the additional case for the larger heads weighing in at 22 kilos. 15, 22, 28 and 35mm jaws are a single one-piece jaw that connects to the tool.
For the 42 and 54mm pressing chains, they have a unique spring-loaded chain, which makes it very easy and also very nice and small for those complex installation areas. Pressing chains from 76mm to 108mm do not have this feature.
All of the pressing chains go hand in hand with the adapter jaws which simply click onto the pressing chain and then attaches to the tool. Adapter jaws from 76mm to 108mm feature slots for a removable handle which simply screws into the side. This makes using these larger sizes much easier.
For the 108mm pressing head, two pressing cycles are required. First an initial press with the first stage adapter jaw, and then with a secondary press with the second stage adapter jaw.
