Safety
WARNING SYMBOLS AND DEFINITIONS
This is the safety alert symbol. It is used to alert you to potential
personal injury hazards. Obey all safety messages that
follow this symbol to avoid possible injury or death.
Indicates a hazardous situation which, if not avoided,
will result in death or serious injury.
Indicates a hazardous situation which, if not avoided,
could result in death or serious injury.
Indicates a hazardous situation which, if not avoided,
could result in minor or moderate injury.
Setup
Addresses practices not related to personal injury.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
Read all safety warnings and all instructions.
Failure to heed these markings may result in personal injury and/or property damage.
Operation
1. Attach pipe bender securely to solid, flat and level
surface that can support weight of pipe bender
and pipe, with enough clearance for movement
of pipe. Do not lay pipe bender on its side. The
hydraulic ram may leak or not function properly.
9. Wear ANSI-approved safety goggles,
heavy-duty work gloves, and steel-toe
work boots during set up and/or use.
2. Keep hands away from ram, pipe
and rollers during use.
11. Do not leave the pipe bender
unattended when loaded.
3. To prevent injury from burns, do
not apply heat to pipe.
12. Do not adjust safety valve.
4. Use only on free standing pipe. Do not
use on pipe that is part of an assembly
or that is installed into a structure.
Maintenance
5. Study, understand, and follow all instructions
before operating this device.
6. Keep rollers clean. If pipe rests on obstruction,
it creates an uneven surface, causing
excess stress and possible breakage.
7. Do not use on painted pipe or
pipe that has debris on it.
8. STOP and release compression if you suspect
imminent structural failure. If safe, inspect
thoroughly and reposition pipe before proceeding.
Page 2
10. Keep bystanders out of work area.
13. Inspect before every use; do not use
if parts are loose, damaged.
14. Ram service must be performed only by
qualified repair personnel. Service or
maintenance performed by unqualified
personnel could result in a risk of injury.
15. When servicing a ram, use only identical
replacement parts . Use of unauthorized
parts or failure to follow maintenance
instructions may create a risk of injury.
16. No alterations shall be made to this product.
17. Only use with accessories rated to handle the
forces exerted by this tool during operation. Other
accessories not designed for the forces generated
may break and forcefully launch pieces.
For technical questions, please call 1-888-866-5797.

Read the ENTIRE IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION section at the beginning of this
manual including all text under subheadings therein before set up or use of this product.
Safety
Bleeding the Ram
BEFORE EACH USE OR IF RAM PERFORMANCE DECREASES,
check for excessive air and proper hydraulic fluid level in Ram. If Ram appears not to be working
properly, it may be necessary to purge its hydraulic system of excessive air as follows:
6. Place Ram Handle over Release Valve.
2. Place Ram Handle over Release Valve.
7. Twist the Handle clockwise to close Valve.
3. Twist Handle counterclockwise to open the Valve.
8. Replace Fill Plug.
4. Insert Handle into Fulcrum, then pump
Handle quickly several times.
IMPORTANT: After bleeding the Ram, test the
Ram for proper operation prior to its actual use.
5. Check fluid level and, if necessary, top off
according to Adding Hydraulic Fluid below.
9. If, after bleeding, the Ram does not appear
to be working properly, do not use it until
repaired by a qualified service technician.
Setup
1. Remove Fill Plug.
Adding Hydraulic Fluid
1. Remove Fill Plug.
3. Replace Fill Plug.
Maintenance
Operation
2. Add high grade hydraulic fluid (sold separately)
slowly until the fluid reaches 1/4″
below the top of the Fill Port.

Bending Pipe
NOTICE: A certain amount of deformation will occur when using this Pipe Bender.
Choosing the right pipe will reduce deformation. Use only ANSI Schedule 40 or 80 malleable steel pipe.
Safety
Note: To further reduce deformation,
internal support may be provided by:
a. Using mandrels. Follow mandrel
manufacturer’s directions.
2. Attach Bending Die to Piston.
3. Adjust Rollers to correspond with
size of Bending Die:
a. Remove R-Pins from Cotter Pins,
then remove Cotter Pins.
b. Packing pipe with clean sand, then
capping off ends with steel caps
(sold separately) before bending.
WARNING! To prevent injury from
burns, do not apply heat to pipe.

Note: Use only with pipe that fits the bending
die exactly. Pipe will deform significantly if
it does not fit the Bending Die exactly.
4. Mark center line of bend on pipe.
5. Slide pipe into Bending Die, lining up center line
marked on pipe with center of Bending Die.

7. Twist Handle clockwise to close Valve.
Operation
9. Continue pumping slowly until desired angle is
reached. Keep in mind that pipe may rebound
slightly, so you may need to bend very slightly
beyond your desired bend to get the correct
bend. Practice on scrap workpieces first.
6. Place Ram Handle over Release Valve.
User-Maintenance Instructions
Procedures not specifically explained in this manual must
be performed only by a qualified technician.
Safety
TO PREVENT SERIOUS INJURY FROM TOOL FAILURE:
Do not use damaged equipment. If abnormal noise or vibration
occurs, have the problem corrected before further use.
1. BEFORE EACH USE, inspect the general condition
of the Pipe Bender and Ram. Check for:
• loose hardware,
• misalignment or binding of moving parts,
• cracked or broken parts,
• any condition that may affect its safe operation.
Setup
If a problem occurs, have the problem corrected
before further use.
Do not use damaged equipment.
2. BEFORE EACH USE, thoroughly test the Ram
for proper operation prior to its actual use.
If the Ram appears not to be working properly,
follow Bleeding instructions on page 5.
3. AT LEAST ONCE EVERY THREE YEARS,
change the hydraulic fluid:
a. Remove Ram from Pipe Bender
by removing two Bolts (5).
b. With the Ram fully lowered, remove the Fill Plug.
c. Tip the Ram over to allow the old
hydraulic fluid to drain out completely.
Dispose of the old hydraulic fluid in
accordance with local regulations.
d. With the Ram upright, completely fill the
Hydraulic Unit with high grade hydraulic fluid until
the fluid is 1/4″ below the top of the Fill Port.
e. Turn the Release Knob counterclockwise
to open the Release Valve.
f. Pump the Handle up and down quickly
several times to purge air from the system.
g. Recheck fluid level and re-fill as needed.
h. Replace the Fill Plug.
i. Replace Ram on Pipe Bender.
Operation
4. AFTER EACH USE, wipe with a clean cloth.
Store indoors out of children’s reach.

Item 62669
TO PREVENT SERIOUS INJURY:
Use caution when troubleshooting a malfunctioning ram.
Completely resolve all problems before use. If the solutions presented in the Troubleshooting guide do not
solve the problem, have a qualified technician inspect and repair the ram before use.
After the ram is repaired: Test it carefully without a load by raising it and lowering it fully,
checking for proper operation, BEFORE RETURNING THE RAM TO OPERATION.
