If you work with rebar up to #5 grade 60 this is a great tool.

I work with tons of rebar on every job.

The price is definetly worth it.

Cuts quick and does precise preset or custom bends.

has no problem doing #5.

Well egineered and a joy to use.

easy to carry around.

HITACHI really thought this one out.

I can't see anything that would make it better.

The VB16Y is a remarkable tool. I'm building my own home and there are few significant tasks I can get a 5 ft. tall 105 lb. wife to do. But with the VB16Y I can set up an assembly line and my wife now cuts and bends rebar. It's really that simple. The tool is light enough (around 45 lb.) I can bring it down to the job site. It's bends are repeatable and the tool is remarkably rugged. I bought mine used for our construction but if you are in the business you need this tool and I wouldn't be scared off by the price.

This awesome machine caught my eye at a tool show in Hawaii.. I was amazed at how portable and versatile it was. What made me buy it was its ability to cut up to #5 rebar and custom bend stirrups and angles, ...

This tool is very easy to use, easily cuts and bends sched. 60 #5 bars. Perfect for forming variable configured pieces on site. I feel like it paid for itself in the first couple of days of use.

I got this for my husband as a Christmas gift because he is a metal artist who uses rebar frequently in his creations. I was amazed to see how quickly and easily this machine shapes and cuts 1/2 inch rebar. It is perfect for getting precise bends with no physical effort and is easy to use. My husband has told everyone about the wonderful Christmas gift I gave him this year. He says he highly recommends this machine.

This thing is flat out amazing. There's nothing else this portable and this durable. I had one of these on a job site and bent and cut around 6k #4 rebars, the cutter was still going strong and the bending was bending effortlessly. I hate using the phrase paying for itself, but this tool paid for itself less than half way through my first use.

This is the iphone of rebar bending tools. Automatic systematic, user friendly, effective. If you find a better rebar bender and cutter in a single package, buy it. This tool makes cutting and bending rebar effortless.
