Bend 1/2-in. to 2-in. of conduit on upgraded Greenlee 555 triple nickel benders
By Alyssa Dalton
November 20, 2013 – Greenlee has redesigned bending shoes for the 555 triple nickel line of electric conduit benders to allow users to bend 1/2-in. to 2-in. of the same conduit type on the same shoe, which it says will reduce changeovers and save time and money on the jobsite.
With the new shoes, conduit size is now selected by rotating the shoe—no longer requiring a changeover for different sizes. This reduced handling of heavy shoes also lessens the risk of ergonomic injuries when swapping shoes on the jobsite, says Greenlee. The new shoes are compatible with all current-line 555 benders (555C, 555CX, and 555DX) and are available for Rigid/IMC, EMT, and PVC-Coated conduit.
