Review for Rothenberger Pipe Bender by Around To
12th November 2020

A heavy and unwieldy set of benders. The rollers have a tendency to come loose and fall off in the van. There is a lot of play on the pipe grip, and if not located just right puts a dent in the pipe. Had an issue with some wrinkling on 22mm but a good clean and some scotchbrite sorted that issue.

I have had these benders since i was an apprentice 12 years ago and they are still going strong. They have rippled some bends but with a bit of a clean they work perfectly again!

I like this bit of kit, its fairly priced and does what it meant to do, I have to be honest and say I got this last minute and if I had a choice at the time I would have passed and looked into getting a different set, but saying that they do what they are meant to do

I managed to get this at a reasonable price. Great bender but first time out the box and it left a dent in my pipe so I have to file the guides as a slight mismold had occurred. Writing falls off in no time but this doesn't affect the use. Angles engraved on the bend helps for quick bending of pipe.

I started using this pipe bender from when I first started as an apprentice and when I got enough money I finally brought myself one and have never looked back I have it it for many years and although it no longer looks new it still performs just as good as day one and I still have both the original formers for it too

A life long piece of kit, this is a great tool designed for the user and to do a job as well. It is lighter and seems to stay intact throughout the rigours of work and abuse.

Needed a robust bender after my cheapo one died in the middle of a job. Yes it's not cheap but the quality justifies this. Love the pouch to store the formers in too. Quality item as normal from Rothenberger.

I used a mates set yesterday when doing a plant room, they weren't bad, but not to my normal standards of my hilmor benders, but to be honest the standard of pipe lately is shocking, I tried a few benders recently and on big bends the pipe ripples on all of them.

Good benders but have rippled the pipe from new from time to time despite cleaning and greasing. Not sure I can blame this on the benders though as copper isn't the quality it used to be.

These were my first set of benders I still have them and at 18st I can use them with ease. They pull a good bend and have rarely ripple the pipe. Allows for good control and tight bending. The problem comes when I hand them to my 12st apprentice he has to put them on the floor and lift himself to bend 22mm so he bought his own set from what shop £20... they are heavier and have slightly longer handles and I hate to admit it but they are easier to use than mine by miles.

Have had mine for 7 years now. Really good benders, comfortable to use and give consistently good bends. They do ripple occasionally but yoi just have to give an oil and tighten up some of the bolts to solve this, but that's just a general house keeping issue caused by wear and tear rather than being a fault of the product. Look after your tools and your tools will look after you!

These have lasted longer than any other pipe bender I've ever had. Use them everyday. They have recently started rippling the pipe but I think it's because they need a good clean. Would highly recommend and by now I would have usually lost and replaced the guide but it's hand having the little bag

We have been using the armeg tap wrench for nearly a year. It does what it says on the tin. Useful for awkward back nuts in tight spots and even use on boiler installs. While the price is premium the tools is good quality.

I’ve installed a Schneider Wiser heating control system to my own heating system at home with an Intergas Rapid 32 combi boiler using the Open Therm protocol. The ease of installation to the boiler was remarkable and connectivity between the TRV, room stat and receiver was so simple, we now have it set up with seven TRV’s with other coming on board when I get chance to change the radiators etc. The set up and scheduling is very simple, myself and the better half both have the app on our phones and can control the heating remotely, so so simple I would thoroughly recommend the Wiser system to any one. I have also recommended and installed another Wiser system to one of my customers who was going to install a Nest until I showed him the versatile and ease of installation and use of both the TRV’s and the app
