Update: This tool was replaced by the P328. The P322 was introduced in the US in 2005. It is a durable battery operated strapping tool. The P322 does all the work. It tensions, seals, and cuts the strapping. The nose of this tool is much improved over previous battery tools. A battery will last up to 200 strap applications per charge. There are two kinds of chargers a 15 minute and 60 minute charge.
Allstrap Opinion: It used to be that every time you dropped a battery operated strapping tool, there was $400 in damage. This tool changes that with a reinforced nose and supported battery housing. The first time we saw this tool demoed they intentionally dropped it, and all of our mouths hung open in disbelief! But the tool was not damaged. For a more efficient and updated tool, use the P326. Update 9-2021 the current update for the P322 tool is the P328 or P328S
