A portable, vertical mounting platform for the 882 fliptop bender permits use of protractors for accurate bending. There are storage pegs for the extra shoes and saddlesand the large tray accomodates the extra follow bars and either the manual or electric pump. Use of the electric pump gives a bending speed equal to the electric benders with less than half the weight, in fact, one man can load the BC82 into a truck by himself. It eliminates the time spent on setup and teardown and the large wheels make for easy movement around the shop or jobsite. No more crawling around on the floor.
