I have a need to bend an offset in 2 1/2" rigid. Can anyone help me? If not do you know who might rent a bender? I called a bunch of the bigger tool rental places with no luck.
Thanks Scott.

I am sure you can get a hydralic bender for around 90.00. Some of those discount offshore no brand tool houses. I have a fellow electricain friend bend an off set into a 2" emt conduit, but I am told they work much better for rigded pipe.

Just wanted to add a link for something that might work in a pinch.

I have always used a hydraulic bender for anything over 2", welded or solid drawn conduit, on occasions I have used the pipe fitters bending equipment [Linked Image], could you find a pipe fitter locally who could bend it for you or do you need a lot of bends?

Did you try CLS? Standard Electric?

I would imagine big companies like that would rent tools, but I could be wrong.

The only one I am sure of that rents benders is Graybar, but they are few and far between.

I am fairly certain we go here when we need extra benders and pullers.

Pro Tools

Another suggestion would be do you know anyone at a trade school.

Hey Bob thanks. Jackpot! Several greenlee benders for rent. Now how exactly do you use them?

Be careful on line… www.greenlee.textron.com is the real deal. !!![www.greenlee-textron] is a scuzzball imposter!!!


www.greenlee.textron.com/support/index.html is their support site, in Rockford, IL. Tool operating manuals are likely available in PDF. You might be able to get one in advance to know what to expect. Best of luck to you.

mailto: support@greenlee.textron.com

If you’ve got room, 30° offsets are the easiest to lay out. Maybe Allow For a Little SCRAP.
