    What's it worth? In my opinion and most that have owned one would say what ever the price of scap is . I was not impressed with it most refer to them as pipe kinker .

    I made my first stinger, rad hoop and swing out/swing down tire carrier with mine. Got a real bender for my cage but still use that one for odds and ends. Most recently my dash and to bend up my 1/4 wall tie rod, drag link and panhard. It's good for smaller bends on the heavy stuff that a normal bender can't handle. Buddies have used mine to also re-arch their leaf springs

    I think I paid 129.00 for my Air/Hydraulic so not pump jacking.

    If you run a bead of weld on the sides of the dies and grind it for a tight fit on your pipe it make WAY better bends. Also make new follower rollers using angle iron so you get 2 contact points on the pipe instead of 1. Helps with not flattening the pipe.

    I prefer to build it and not buy it, you see it, I probably made it.

    I heard filling the pipe with sand reduces the kinking however I have yet to use mine but it will be used this season.

    Ya filling it with sand and capping the ends does do the trick. just time consuming.
