      Just got a phone call from P-Rick.
      He says he can kick that things butt with his manual.
      He's calling Ben to set up the next competition at the Hotel.

              My understanding is that this an agreed tool with Uponor. The M12 version will come with 1/2", 3/4", and 1".

              There will also be an 18V version that will cover sizes above that.

                A Milwaukee rep in this area demo'd it a few weeks back. This tool is far faster than the previous Uponor (Pronounced: Up on her? ) power expander.

                Is the manual expander faster? Depends on how many Wheaties P-Rick eats in the AM.

                  you still have to rotate the last crimp and i believe you still cycle the crimper to expand the heads and pex

                      Saw it at the latest phcc show, looks good and the $ should be right @ $400- $500 I was told. I will be getting one. Already have a few things in the m12 format, been really pleased. I did get the no hub torque driver, couldn't pass it up. They offered a laser plumb bob with driver, since my current laser p.b. took a dive ........ SOLD

                        Why would you still use the hand expander? I've plumbed houses with a hand expander and with a power expander. A power expander is much faster and easier. No way will I go back to the hand expander for more then two or three joints.

                            Milwaulkee also has a heated jacket coming out on the m12 format. Might be released already. If I still rode motorcycles I'd look into it.

                              True. You do still have to cycle the expander, but the Milwaukee expander is far faster than the previous power expander.

                              I don't think I've ever bothered rotating the expander and I've never had a leak.
