Does anyone have any experience with this manufacturer's products? I'm interested in the conduit benders and pulling equipment.

I have used a Current hydraulic KO set. Other than the color, I couldn't tell it apart from my Greenlee.

I've used the "77 Series" electric bender and it worked fine.


Thanks

Our company has the "Triple Nickel" as we call it, but its the 77 series bender in your link and it works well.. Although lugging the thing around is a bit cumbersome (weighs >200lbs), it is easy to make consistent bends for pipe racks and such.

Not to mention Greenlee's 555 bending shoes will work on it

Triple Nickels, that's what I've always called them also...or sidewinder.

I guess Greenlee's patents don't hold up too well in China.

Mike, what they are showing in their catalog is simply outdated Greenlee models, I know this because we have a few of the Greenlee "sidewinders" as we call them, and we can not buy repair parts for them.

Greenlee is more than happy to sell us newer models though, which we do have a few of. [Linked Image]

Not only that Roger, I spoke too fast again. Upon looking thru the catalog download, there is a made in America flag on each item sold. Thank God for small miracles.
