i need to get a roll bender.
i currenty have a heavy duty hand crank similar to swags 'hulk roller'. hooked up to a pipe threader to power it. it not enough, and i just smoked the pipe threader. so its time to step up.
currently looking at 2 models, and need to keep it under $10k, and single phase power. needs to bend 2" .120wall square tube.
edwards HAT5000- i like that its hydraulic, but its built as an add on to the ironworkers so it doesn't have a hydraulic power source with it. they sell a power pack for it but its really pricey ~$4k. are there any other powerpack options, a dump trialer power pack seems to be close but i doubt it has the duty cycle. other power pack options? also a bonus that it belive it comes with most of the dies needed
maybe just bit the bullet and get an iron worker at the same time. but an ironworker isn't something i see my self using alot. would definitely blow the budget but i might be okay with that for more tools.
baileigh r m55- this one fits the bill, but i have a feeling it will be lacking on power and take a long time to get much of a radius on the 2" sq tube. nice that its ready to go out of the box.
anyone have any input?
