It says 5 seconds per cycle. I'm trying to think if that's slower than what I do with my regular copper ring tools. Switching the inserts would slow things down a bit. After a long day a battery would look nice.
I've never had major issues fitting in tight places with the copper ring tools, if I think first (big if lol). I do have a close quarters ¾" tool to get up in between joists especially on those tees right under the water heater on old double-wides.
I'd like to see how the jaws open and how heavy the tool feels.

I have a cinch block I use in tight space. M12 3/8” impact makes short work of it.

Notice how soft and wet it is too, it's just a cheaper lumber than you get at the local yard. My local yard doesn't carry anything but fir and you can buy fir at the big box too and it's far better lumber than the welfare crap 2 shelves over. I'm one of those that will spend the time rifling through the whole stack for straight boards and I just used some last week that came from Menards about 8 years ago, still straight as the day I picked em up.

Thats cause you’re anal retentive.

I generally don't buy Ryobi tools and have all Dewalt 20V stuff but just came across these.

I am thinking about getting the crimper and switching to copper rings from the cinch clamps. I use the cinch clamps now because the tool can get into tighter areas much easier than the crimpers.

Keeping it out of the sun helps.

The new lumber if you look has a lot thicker growth rings, the hybrids they plant after a clear cut grow quickly but the wider growth rings allow more twisting. If you find a old 2x4 count the rings in it, will have 4 to 5 times as many

Why is it every time I buy lumber from one of my big box stores the lumber will twist, warp, etc... like a corkscrew?  No matter how I try to get best from them, after a day or 2 of sitting around waiting to be used, it will be warped to the point of it being nearly impossible to use.  Roger

Okay, I am super jealous!  How I would love to have a set up like that!  I can only imagine how wonderful it must be to work like that.
