The RIDGID 48558 kit contains 1/2" to 1" Press Tool Jaw Attachments for MegaPress and MegaPressG Systems, when used with the appropriate RIDGID Press Tool, these are designed to mechanically press MegaPress fittings onto pipe to create a permanent water or gas tight seal. MegaPress is a registered trademark of Viega GmbH & Co. When the switch on the press tool is depressed, a motor powers a hydraulic pump which forces fluid into the press tool cylinder. This moves the tool rollers forward into contact with the attachment and applies thousands of pounds of force to the specially designed fitting. The entire pressing cycle takes between 4 and 8 seconds starting from when the switch is pressed. Once the pressing tool starts to deform the fitting, the tool will automatically continue the press until complete.
