Bend More with Less: New Industry-First Greenlee® Dual-Shoe Hand Bender

For the first time bend three sizes with two shoes in one tool for maximum versatility


ROCKFORD, Ill. (June 20, 2023) – Greenlee®, a part of Emerson’s professional tools portfolio, introduces a new, innovative hand bender with patent-pending dual-shoe design that delivers precise, quality bends on 1/2ʺ EMT, IMC, and rigid, and 3/4ʺ EMT conduits with one tool. The only dual-groove hand bender on the market, it lets electricians bend more while carrying less with its 2-in-1 shoe design for ease of use and efficiency.

“The Greenlee Dual-Shoe Hand Bender eliminates the hassle of having to carry multiple hand benders to every job site,” said Katey Earley, product manager, Greenlee for Emerson. “It combines the sizes from the two most commonly used hand benders into one to increase productivity, and it improves ergonomics with its lightweight design and ability to stand on its own.”

Control, stability, and leverage are optimized for more effortless operation thanks to its large foot pedal and wider base; new inner-shoe angle markings make it simple to see measurements when bending shoe-up, SITE-RITE®  enhances visibility in low light settings, and cutting is made easier with its integrated conduit holder.

Additionally, the Greenlee Dual-Shoe Hand Bender not only offers exceptional functionality but also helps assure precision by incorporating angle bending markings directly on the tool itself.
