Northern Industrial Rebar Cutter and Bender
This rebar bender/cutter is very durable and surprisingly light in weight. Great for handling 1/2"(12 ml.) rebar.
For working with 5/8"(15ml.) I would recomend a good breakfast as more effort is required.
Overall, I am not sorry I purchased this tool.

Does the job
The tool was just used for a job that had almost 6000' of grade 60 #4 rebar. The tool worked well and the cutting blades show real no wear. Cutting and bending #4 does take effort and at the end of the day you will be tired but for the cost this is a great tool that gets the job done without any problems.

this product is very easy to handle and use. one pull of the handle and you get a perfect 90 degree bend. once mounted on a 2x8 board it stays uprite and ready to bend rebar quickly and easily. Great for big constrution sites or your backyard project.

This product works great! If you are conducting any amount of rebar work at home I highly recommend getting this product for your cutting and bending needs. I have been using it to cut and bend 1/2-inch rebar for various projects and have had zero problems and it is very easy to utilize.
Thanks Northern Tool.

Very pleased at this unit. The price is appropriate for me. I am building one project and it should last thru several buildiings and 1300' x 8' mountainous wall and walk around the perimeter. It served thru 1/3 of the project so far with 116 yards of concrete and 300 to go and I have saved money from renting one. We will see if it lasts the whole project. Only problem has been the retainer split ring popped of but quickly replaced the same one back on and it has not been a problem since. We mounted it on a 2x8 rough board which helped the stability. Overall a good value.

Good product for ICF's building...
I bought one of these for a construction project using ICF's. I found it very helpful and strong enough to handle the job. I bent mainly 1/2'' rod and it worked without effort, but you better be prepared and eat a full breakfast if you plan on bending 5/8'' rod for a whole day. Although it did handle the 5/8'' rod without problems (75 cuts and 150 bends), it is mainly made to bend and cut 1/2'' rod. I would recommend an hydraulic press for extensive bending of anything bigger than 1/2''. But pricewise, you can not beat this bender for small jobs. I liked it very much and it is now a new addition to my tool box.
