The Numatx HTS-C3K C-Squeezer System is a hydraulically operated hand held tool, designed to squeeze up to 1/8" diameter aircraft grade rivets (AD alloy). This unit is hydropneumatic operated (also known as pneudraulic). The system is comprised of an HTC-3 hand-held C-Squeezer unit and an HTI-10 Pressure Intensifier. The fully hydraulic C-Squeezer offers the advantages of decreased weight, smaller size, and constant force when compared to traditional pneumatic only squeezers. This reduces operator fatigue, allows for use in more confined areas, and improves control of the s2queezing action (feathering operation). The units are built from high-quality aircraft grade materials, with parts made on CNC machining centers and features held to close tolerances, for years of dependable operation.

I left a review that I loved this tool. Yes I still do. I had noticed somebody left a review and said that at 100 PSI it wouldnt smash a -4 rivet. Well, I can tell you for a fact that it does and with great gusto. Way beyond what is needed to give a good shop head. I have 175 in the shop but regulate to do jobs. Art

Bought on the advice of a builder friend. Looks to be of excellent quality and US made. Doesnt come with ATF and doesnt say how much it needs. Havent squeezed any rivets yet. Instructions are a little obtuse and rendered in incredibly small print.

Comes with different hose than what is in all the pictures of product. It ships with thick rubber hose and not the stainless wrapped hose making it more cumbersome to use.

Q: Can I use the yokes I already have? They are the standard 2 hole bolt on type.

The system is designed to use the yokes the manufacture offers, but the HTS-C3K unit can use industry standard CP-214 style yokes.

Q: Does this have quick-release shear pins for easy yoke changes?

This does have a quick release system for changing the yokes.

Q: Does it come with the thick rubber hydraulic hose or the hose in the pictures? im not interested in the thick rubber hose.

This comes with the hose as shown in the photo.

Q: Someone has already asked what hose comes with the kit. The question hasnt been answered, as the picture isnt totally clear. So does it come with a thick rubber hydraulic hose or a more manageable thinner hose.? ie braded stainless steel hose Regards Tom.

Per the vendor, these come with a black hydraulic hose now, they discontinued using the braided hose.
