Considering buying a new pro press. I was shown a REMS AKKU PRESS 571 cordless. This unit is German made and very popular in Europe.



Anyone here familiar with it or have any experience or sage advice?

    great products

    I've used the corded version of that tool for years. Check out the 3/8 threaded rod cutting jaws for it. That was my most frequently used jaw.



    I have the REMS Curvo, Hurrican, and 1-1/4 power threader. I have had to replace one switch in the Curvo and that is the extent of the repairs.



    Some of my REMS are closing in on 20 years of service. These are nice quality tools that should last a lifetime if cared for.



    Service was quick and priced well from the center in MN.

    I love that tool almost as much as I love my wife!





    It uses the 12V DeWalt battery FYI

    Looking

    Into a pro press too. There are a few out there.



    Any comparisons on which are better for tight spaces, and the pros/cons of them?



    Also, having a place that will repair it locally too is important.

    Rems +

    I have used my Rems electric and 14v portable models for over 8 years without a problem. I use the 3/8" cutting jaws for threaded rod and wonder how primitive a hacksaw was in comparison.



    Rothenberger makes a lightweight portable model that gets in tight spaces.
