Thats what ive seen online also. I have done roughly 30+ crimps with mine the first week. Worked flawlessly. Very happy.

Yep. The Harbor Freight cheap one is going strong after thousands of crimps. It works better than I expected it to, not a huge fan of Harbor Freight tools in general.

I looked at the harbor freight one here and it didn't look anywhere close to 1/0.

Could just be me.

Doesn't matter i need sime thing that will do 2/0 and larger.

Found a few decent looking ones on ebay that go larger than 4/0 and are about the same price as the hf one.
