Machined Tubing Bender Air/Hydraulic Ram Mount @ SWAG Off Road

Tired of cranking the handle on your tubing bender? Are you using a cheater bar slid over the factory handle to gain mechanical leverage, while trying to read the degree wheel that is ~ 8 feet away? This kit is designed out of pure necessity and built to be the best kit out on the market.

Designed to fit the JD-2 Model 3, JD-2 Model 32, Pro Tools 105 & 105HD, Woodward Fab WFB2 ,and JMR manual tubing benders.

SWAG off road has honed it focus and tube bending expertise over the past few months and redesigned the air/hydraulic ram mount to include the following feature upgrades.

The ram attachment clamp is now holding the ram in line with the bending axis, this results in less wear and tear on the bending ram and increased bending capacity.
  • 100 pound elastic return spring now included with every kit.
  • Increased stroke length = increased bending degrees per cycle.
  • No welding required, 100% bolt on kit.
  • 100% designed, machined and manufactured with all US made components
    and materials.

Designed with a high level of attention to detail and superior fit and finish.

This is great, I was just looking into this set up this morning. Couple questions I have, as I'm a newbie bender owner. Could you explain a little further and maybe show, the need for the new mounting bracket that is in the accessory package and also what limitations are there with loosing that outer most pin hole.
Thanks, looking to order this week hopefully.

If you choose to mount your bender using the method we show on our website, a new mounting bracket will be needed as the inner mounting hole location is no longer usable due to interference with the ram, as a result we used the furthest outward pin hole location to provide a secondary clamping point for the stationary arms on a bender.

Keep in mind that it is very difficult to have a one side fits all solution considering we are adapting to 4 different manufactures have all changed their design over the years, case in point our shop JMR bender was purchased in 2001 has 8 holes on the stationary arm, the newer JMR bender we have has 7 holes on the arm and their benders made in 2009 has 6 holes.

Through extensive research we have came to the general understanding that only the larger dies 2" in diameter with a center line radius (CLR) of 7" will not be compatible with the current attachment method shown on our website.

If you have the JD2 model 32 you will not run into any issues regardless of what die size and center line radius you have as our attachment method uses the same mounting hole locations as their hydraulic conversion kits.

If you have the JD2 Model 3, Pro Tools, JMR or Woodward Fab bender and you need to use a large die size ~2.0" with a 7.0" CLR die. The method shown below will allow you to attach your tube bender using the factory two hole locations and still provide ample clamping force keeping the arms parallel and the secondary mounting bolt will keep your bender securely attached to the mounting plate.
