Signode BXT3 (also known as the BXT3-16) Battery Powered Strapping Tool

The BXT3-16 strapping tool keeps up many of the features loved on the BXT2-16.  The new BXT3 has updated the display.  Now there is a beautiful screen that shows exactly what the tool is doing, and can do.  It is easier to adjust tension, and weld, and flip from manual mode to automatic. The display shows tension in real time.  The display ticks up as the tool is pulling the banding tight.  In auto mode, the tool kicks into weld/cut once tension is reached.

The battery and charger remain Bosch, but now the battery is a slim pack.  It uses the same charger.  The feel and balance is similar to the original tool, which is best in class.

Tension is 90-560 pounds!  The Signode BXT3-16 has optional charger and 2.0 Amp Hour 18 volt lithium battery.  Run it on either 1/2“ or 5/8” x .019-.040” polyester or polypro strapping.  The BXT3 is only 8.4 pounds.

For 3/8” use the BXT3-13

For 5/8” or 3/4” use the BXT3-19 or P329

For 1” or 1 1/4” use the P331

Allstrap opinion:

This Signode BXT3-16 tool is of the easiest to use on the market.  The weakest two parts on the BXT2 were upgraded.  The blocking pawls (responsible for swinging the arm away from the feedwheel) was replaced by a spring.  The second trouble spot for the BXT2 was things getting caught in the welding belt.  The BXT3 now has a cover to keep big things out, and a blow out hole to get rid of the small things.  The BXT3-16 is also much easier to work on for maintenance.  With these improvements, the Signode BXT3-16 is now tied as our top recommended tool (P328 is the other top tool)!

BXT3-16 review update 4-2020:  This Signode tool now relies on a Bosch battery that you can no longer get at Home Depot or Amazon.  The BXT3-16 has a protective cover that hugs the battery.  The cover was nice to make the battery hard to bang up, but now you can not use the current 6, 6.3, or 8 amp batteries, making the BXT3-16 battery expensive and outdated.

The Signode PFH is a variant of the PF designed for heavier applications. The tool allows operators to bring strap to desired tension with minimal interruption, effort and strap waste. It has a serrated feedwheel which engages the strapping firmly. There is no limit to the amount of slack the tool can pull out of the strap. Fast and easy to use, it requires the use of painted and waxed strapping. Push-type feedwheel tensioners are specifically designed for round or irregular shaped bundles. The PFH is designed for use with steel strapping in sizes from 19mm x 0.64mm, to 31.8mm x 0.89mm and can be used with both Signode’s Apex® and Magnus® steel strapping.  
The Signode PH-2 is a rack and pinion style pusher tensioner for steel strapping. An advantage of the PH-2 is that it pulls more tension than the feed wheel style tensioners. This tool has limited uptake, as much as the rack is long. The PH-2 is used with .75\” and 1.25\” x up to .031\” banding and weighs 7 lb.
The PHDS 2 1/4” pneumatic sealer is the perfect companion for the PHDX-114 tensioner.  A very reliable tool originally produced by Acme/Rapz, this tool has stood the test of time.  
The Rapz PHDX 114 is a pneumatic pusher tensioner for steel strapping to secure round or irregular shaped packages. The PHDX-114 is light enough it does not have to be counter balanced. This tool is very mobile and is standard in steel service facilities.
