The EP-60D series is a double acting model. Double acting tools will eliminate the possibility of the tool jamming. Double acting means hydraulically advancing the ram to build the proper tonnage, then the hydraulic pressure is reversed to retract the ram. This will ensure the ram to retract without having to pry the jaws apart to release them and it will also retract much faster than single acting spring release tools.; Titanium has the strength of steel but weighs nearly 30% less. Due to its lighter weight and the tool’s portable design, the chance of back and muscle strain is greatly reduced. The titanium 60 ton press is easily maneuvered where heavy steel presses are almost impossible to operate making it an ideal tool for jobs such as helicopter line installations.; NOTE: When using any of these high-pressure tools, always use 10,000 psi rated non-conductive hose (NC-16 series).
