I own a Greenlee 1981 crimper that is about $350 new, but bought mine for under $50 at a garage sale years ago. They are a mechanical crimper, not hydraulic, but the nice part is they need no dies, and can quickly adjust to various size cables from as small as #6 stranded to 4/0 stranded. I've used it to do thousands of crimps over the years, and it does a great job, and never had one fail yet. It also fits in very small spaces, so easy to crimp cable without taking it out of place.
