Viega LLC has launched its own branded pressing tools for use with its fittings. The Viega Pressgun 6 and Pressgun 6 Picco are now available in distributors and through Viega. The tools, which are the first in North America to carry the Viega name, cost less than similar press tools from other manufacturers and are an affordable way for contractors to adopt pressing. The Pressgun 6 is a no-frills, cost-efficient workhorse that can press up to 4-inch ProPress copper and stainless and 2-inch MegaPress with the V2 actuator and rings, as well as 2-inch PureFlow PEX. The less expensive and less powerful Pressgun 6 Picco can press up to 1¼-inch ProPress with the C1 actuator and rings, 1½-inch PureFlow and ¾-inch MegaPress.
