JD2 mounting problem

No garage and no concrete, paved driveway or dirt. How to mount the thing ? Rebar through the base and into the ground, say 4' ?

do a air over hyd conversion. in the end it will be cheaper and easier.

If you don't want to or can't go hydro bolt it to a piece of 2" square tube that fits into the receiver hitch of your truck.

You may have to extend it/orientate it/ build some contraption with additional legs but it's been done before.

Just build a stand and mount it to a piece of 1 1/8" plywood. As long as you are standing on the plywood when you are pulling it will work great.

For those of you telling him to do air over hydro, he has no garage. Therefore, he probably doesn't have an air compressor big enough to run the HF ram. I know mine takes a shit ton of air.

i ran my ram with a 25gal compressor on my first cage. it did ok, better with a 60gal.

make a winch mount jig like one guy did to bend tube.

He could use the jack handle to run the ram without air.

Jd2

good tips so far and the links too; I do have a 26gal compressor in the basement, welder, plasma, etc... usually do my work outside on nice days; and I already have the bender, jsut trying to figure out how best to mount it
I have a long stroke jack like the one in the links but its manual not air. - anyone done this ? how does it compare with the JD hydo/air conversion ?

would the bender really stay mounted on plywood ? last time I used it in a buddys garage it took quite a bit of force to bend 1 1/2" tube - I can see knocking myself over with the bender on top of me

Here's a picture of the way I mounted my PT105 with a HF ram and a crappy engine stand:

EDIT: I been bending conduit vertical for 25 years so this setup works better for me.

cool idea. the thin wall of the engine stand strong enough for 8 tons?

I'd use the thick 1 1/8" stuff through bolted with big washers. I guess it depends on the bolt pattern on the base of your stand. You could always dig a 2' x 2' footing and sink some anchor bolts into it. That could always be dug up and filled back it when you go hydro.

The bender and ram are mounted to 2" x .250 structural tube... the only thinwall is the base.

I would go with the air/hydro setup.
Another way would be to dig out an 1.5'x1.5'x8" and pour a small slab. I did this off the side of my old driveway so the bender wasnt always in the way. Sink lots of rebar into it, and you should be good.

I have a similar but different situation!! My bender is at the folks house and the house is built on pile-ons about 14' off the ground and you drive up on 2x6 decking to park underneath the house! This being said, I made a "cross" underneath the base that I fab'd for the bender out of 2x6 boards and countersunk the bolt heads so it would be stable. It works great for the 1/2" to1" stuff I bend while I stand on a couple of the boards. I really think it would be a struggle on a 2" piece but I have just put it up against a pile-on under the house for a 1 man operation before!! It works until I have a pad to permanenty sink this beast too!!

as i have to work out of my old mans shop i have to make sure i can dismantle me bender when not is use. i came up with a mount on a steel saw horse that i can put the bender on.




works good as i have bent close to 300feet with it like this. when pulling real hard it might move an inch or so, plus i can hold the top tube with one had and the other on the bender handle for hard pulls
