Introducing the innovative new Gardner Bender Portable Cyclone® powered conduit bender for bending 1/2" – 1" EMT, Rigid, IMC, and 1/2" – 3/4" PVC-Coated Rigid conduit, all on a single shoe! The bender uses a standard pipe threader as a power source, making it versatile and quick to set up with a common jobsite tool. It is compatible with most pipe threaders on the market.

Introducing the innovative new Gardner Bender Portable Cyclone® powered conduit bender for bending 1/2" – 1" EMT, Rigid, IMC, and 1/2" – 3/4" PVC-Coated Rigid conduit, all on a single shoe! The bender uses a standard pipe threader as a power source, making it versatile and quick to set up with a common jobsite tool. It is compatible with most pipe threaders on the market.

Weighing in at just 35 lbs. (about 53 lbs. with a pipe threader attached), the Portable Cyclone® is the perfect replacement for large and clunky mechanical benders.

The Portable Cyclone® is capable of bending 1” rigid conduit to 90° in about 10 seconds versus roughly 45 seconds with a traditional hand bender, or about 78% faster. This is tens of hours of time savings over the course of a year.

Performing precise bends with repeatability has never been this quick and easy, especially for early stage apprentices.

The Portable Cyclone® is especially handy for doing specialty bends like offsets and saddles quickly. There are markings on the bending shoe to help do these bends easily. The markings include deduct arrows, rim notches, and back of 90° bend stars similar to what’s seen on a hand bender. Additionally, the Portable Cyclone® has a bend radius to NEC requirements.

Setup is easy; just use the lever adjustment on the back of the bender to adjust the level of the conduit, attach the threader to the bender, and you can begin bending. The bender can be positioned in either the vertical orientation or placed on its side to bend in the horizontal orientation. The 3/4” threaded legs can also be removed to create a longer stand when it is placed on its side.
