The handle of the heavy-duty bender plays a critical role in the amount of effort it takes to bend the pipe or tubing. Benders designed to help you bend soft tubing may feature short handles because there isn't as much force or leverage needed to manipulate the tubing. When you're working with harder tubing and pipes, like those made from titanium, copper or steel, extra long handles on conduit benders increase the amount of leverage you have and improve the force you're able to produce. This ensures better bending performance.
Tube benders come in a several configurations for various applications. Consider carefully the angles that it can produce. Some tools can twist your pipe or tubing into any angle required, while others are limited to certain degrees. Many Ridgid benders provide you with reference markers that make it easy to see exactly what angle the pipe is at while you are bending it.
Having the right tool for each application is essential. We offer a variety of Rigid brushes, tube benders and other plumbing tools to help you get the job done. Consider carefully the type of piping you are manipulating, the length of the tool's handles and the bend angle they are capable of. From steel pipes to soft tubing, there are plenty of heavy-duty bender options for any plumbing situation.
