In searching for a decent crimper, I found them from very cheap to very expensive. From 30 bucks to over 1000. Since I'm not making cables for a living, just my own and other Bird owners, I didn't need a crazy expensive unit.
I wanted one with the best assortment of dies to handle up to 4/0 cable. In order to obtain that, I went with the 16 ton unit. I has more dies than I'll ever need, but the key was, it went from 6 to 4/0 gauge cable. Perfect for what I need. And didn't break the bank. It does a hexagon crimp and works well. If you need cables made up, see me at Pine Mountain.

After Pine Mountain, I'll be staying at the Moose Lodge in Albany GA for about 2 weeks. Then heading to Florida for the winter.

We are on the west side of Fort Worth Texas. One hour from the DFW airport. Flights to Chicago are pretty cheap and almost every hour
Hi Max!

How RUDE of me...momma would be angry...I found a spot to park over Thanksgiving Holiday. I GREATLY appreciate your offer of safe storage, and should have let you know MUCH sooner that RV WHERE YET would not be joining you for the holiday!

No Problem Don.

We roll with the flow here in the country. Take it as it comes and try to not get upset too much when plans change. My job requires flexibility and it sorta carries over into the rest of our activities

Max.

They work great! For 4/0 crimps get the larger one as shown in link below. Although I used a thin coat of dielectric grease, some have suggested Noalox. With AGM’s and a coating of Liquid Electrical Tape have experienced zero corrosion so far.

It's a little out-of-the-way, but I understand John Malone of Liberty Media ows about 7% of the land in the state of Maine. He could probably fix you up with something.

Thanks Brad,
We love it out west and enjoy our trips there.
We'll miss everyone there too. But grandchildren on the east cost keep us here most of the time.

Next scheduled Q trip is Jan 2020. See ya then.
