How to Choose Between The Different Types of PET Strapping Tools 


There are different types of tools to choose from when it comes to your (PET) Polyester strapping!  Let’s take a look…

In the end, it comes down to your budget and the frequency or workload you have for the tool/s.

If you have high volumes of strapping work and your budget allows for it, we suggest you look at the Battery Powered Strapping Tools, as these will save you large amounts of time over the manual models. 

However, if your requirements for strapping are infrequent, the standard strapping tensioners will certainly perform for you!
