Signode's PB-114 GripPack 114 Tensioner
Signode's new GripPack 114 tensioner tool is battery powered and replaces the pneumatic PN2-114. The Signode GripPack tensioner runs off of an 18 volt Bosch battery. The battery tensioner is a pusher style, and uses its duck bill nose to push seals and pull tension. This PB-114 GripPack tool pairs with the Grip Pack 114 Sealer.
There are no tools more convenient than the battery powered tools. This GripPack Tensioner totally eliminates the cost of air lines but supplies similar tension as its pneumatic competitors. Not only do battery tools save cost, they offer the greatest mobility of any other tools. Even when compared to manual tools, the weight of battery tools is much less so they can be easily transported around the loading dock and work room. Many people are shocked to hear the new Signode GripPack 114 Tensioner can pull 1,500 pounds of tension. The Lithium-Ion batteries allow the maximum amount of tension to be pulled with just one squeeze of the handle. One charge of the battery can complete up to 120 strapping cycles. *The GripPack battery and charger are sold separately.

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.
