Signode RCBD-1431 Grippack 114 Steel Strapping Sealer
This is the first battery powered steel strap sealer for 1 1/4" high tensile strapping. The Signode RCBD1431 GripPack 114 runs on lithium power and can place 200-300 seals per battery charge. The mechanics of a traditional strapping tool are the same with the GripPack 114, but it is much simpler. The tool is placed over the seal, and when the trigger is pulled it quickly and smoothly seals the joint. The GripPack will not misfire due to a new sensor that detects steel strapping. It is fast, but not quite as fast as a pneumatic RCNS2-114 sealer. It is light weight and easy to transport.
Not only is the tool lightweight, but the sealer is designed ergonomically to reduce operator fatigue. It can be easily transported around the work room or loading dock and doesn't get in the way like the old pneumatic air lines would. Also in comparison to pneumatic tools, the battery tools have much less inconsistency than their pneumatic competitors which can ensure a secure seal each application. With just as much power and strength as pneumatic tools, the battery GripPack 114 Sealer is reliable and a staple in the steel strapping industry as well as the railroad industry. Signode tools are widely used and appreciated throughout the world for their durability and really simple operation. They are also well known for their ergonomically pleasing designs and light weight tools. The GripPack 114 Sealer is no exception, and is having a successful debut as the first and only battery powered steel strapping tool on the market. There is a separate GripPack 114 Tensioner so the two GripPack tools can carry out the entire strapping function.

Update 8-18: We are having way too many problems with Grip Pack tools. Signode said the problem is fixed with the new batch, but we have tools dead on arrival, and dead after a week. If you don't care that Signode does not accept the warranty claim for a month or two, then go right ahead and buy it. Otherwise, lets wait a to see if the mechanical and circuit board problems get figured out on the Grip Pack tensioners, sealers, and cutters.
