Tube Bender Air/Hydraulic Ram Mount
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.
fit the JD-2 Model 3, JD-2 Model 32, Pro Tools 105 & 105HD, Woodward Fab WFB2, Eastwood 21115, 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 and machined pressure release knob is 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.
Sleek aesthetic and clean lines is what separates this kit from everything else on the market, designed with a high level of attention to detail and superior fit and finish.
This kit allows you freedom to take your tube bender with you. Since the hydraulics are now pushing directly against the arms of the bender you are free un-bolt your bender from your concrete floor and mount it on wheels thus saving you valuable floor space.
Please note: If you have the JD-2 Model 3, Pro Tools 105 & 105HD, Woodward Fab WFB2
,and JMR manual tubing benders, you
will no longer be able to use the furthest outward pin hole location on
your tube bender, a large radius 6.5" CLR 1.75" die and or any 2.00"
die will not work with the machined ram mount. If you are using the 5.5" CLR 1.75", or 6" CLR 1.75" round tube die you will not have any interference. The Swag infinite 8 tube bender mounting plate is not compatible with the machined air/hydro ram mount.
This kit includes a new
mounting plate to mount your bender as the hydraulic cylinder interferes with the 2nd inward mounting hole. This bracket is laser cut out of 3/8" steel plate and is
compatible with every tube bender that fits our machined air/hydraulic ram mount
kit, refer to the picture below of the steel mounting bracket.
Please note that this kit is 100%
complete, however it does not come painted. Tube bender as well as the 8 ton ram is not included. The 8 Ton Air/Hydraulic ram must have an outside diameter of 80mm.
There are dozens of 8 ton rams that are sold on Ebay & Amazon,
however a majority of them have an outside diameter of 84MM with will
not work for this application. The 80mm OD we recommend can be
purchased in the link HERE.
Watch the video below to see the JMR tube bender
bend a piece of 1.75" .120 wall DOM tubing sleeved with 1.25"
.250" wall DOM tubing...a fair warning, this bending attachment will exceed the bending capacity of your bender, common sense is advised as you must stay with in the bending capacities of your machine.
