Greenlee’s 855GX IntelliBender cable and conduit bender offers electrical contractors a programmable and portable bender capable of making the most advanced bends with relative ease and speed.

It can bend 3/4-inch rigid in either of its 1-inch rigid or 1-inch EMT shoe grooves, and 1-to-2-inch rigid, EMT or conduit with just one shoe featuring smart sensors that know exactly what diameter conduit and type you are going to bend. Electronic controls on the bender automatically factor in spring-back for any angle.

The 855GX comes with both a pendant controller and LCD interface, offering operators the opportunity to program, save and transfer multiple bends via an included USB drive, making the unit variable enough for jobs with many types and high numbers of bends.

Combined with Greenlee’s new BendWorks software, operators or programmers can use the LCD interface to program up to seven different bends with the ability to save three locally. The use of BendWorks offers a virtually unlimited number of bends to be programmed, stored on a USB memory stick and transferred to another 855GX bender at any time.

Greenlee further touts the unit’s portability, with oversized rear wheels for easier transport and added stability plus a wheel brake bar. Storage boxes and a tray are added for hand tools needed on-site. The unit comes with a GFCI-protected receptacle voltage rated at 120 VAC and 20 Amps, and its solid-state circuit board eliminates arcing and prevents damage from temporary power loss.

Each 855GX IntelliBender is Canadian and U.S. UL listed, and is rated for more than one million bends.
