I have a Flip Top bender and I have been very happy with it. It is a real workhorse but it is very slow with the hand pump. 50-55 pumps for a 90. I have been trying to buy an electric pump but the are very expensive and hard to find. Does anyone here use an electric pump with the 882? I have found a few pumps on Ebay in the $500-1500 range but, that is a little more than I want to pay.

Thanks in advance,
Ty

We use the electric pump on all our benders. It works great with the 882 ! I remember those days of making 2" bends with the hand pumps - now the only thing the hand pumps do are the KO cutters !

Thanks Lucky. Do you use a 960, 915, 975 pump or another brand like Enerpac. I am not very knowledgable on hydraulics.

Merry Christmas,
Ty
