|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.|
NUMATX HTC-3/HTI-10 3K SQUEEZER SYSTEM W/ 3" YOKE
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
You gotta love this tool for sure. fast smooth. love it
Best tool I ever used!
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.
At this time, Im NOT happy with the Numatx Hts-c3k. It will Not set a -4 rivet with 100 psi

The system is designed to use the yokes the manufacture offers, but the HTS-C3K unit can use industry standard CP-214 style yokes.
This does have a quick release system for changing the yokes.
This comes with the hose as shown in the photo.
Per the vendor, these come with a black hydraulic hose now, they discontinued using the braided hose.
