Is this KNIPEX 97 33 02 Crimp Tool the best out there?

Hi all,

Any thoughts on this crimp tool by Knipex, it has dies that can be changed.
https://export.farnell.com/knipex/97-33-02/multicrimp-pliers-charger-w-5/dp/1560900

I'm looking for an extremely high quality crimp tool that can handle automotive crimp bits (Ring, spade, splice etc.) and Dupont crimp terminals for PCB type housing/pin-outs.

This would cost me $545 to import through my Farnell agent, thoughts?

Thanks, M.

I do not know if it is the best, but Knipex and their sister firm Rennsteig make an even nicer crimp system pliers which Tyco/AMP relabels and sells as one of their manual crimpers. I was talking to an AMP  mechanical engineers about a compatible die for one of their contacts, and I could almost hear him swoon when he talked about the tool. The only criticism I have of it is that the dies for it can be rather expensive.

wraper:
This tool costs about $200. Even without any agents it's significantly overpriced at farnell. You cannot crimp dupont with this, this tool is for larger connectors.

wraper:
You could order it here https://www.amazon.de/-/en/97-33-02-MultiCrimp%C2%AE-multi-component/dp/B00203M5YO/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=MultiCrimp&qid=1602796760&sr=8-3 and use some shipping forwarder. Or order at some other place which ships to Sri Lanka.
