Operating functions all seem to work well until I got on the job and needed to bend a piece of metal. It's not clamp on the far end tightly enough which caused my metal to be bent at two different sizes Very unhappy with the clamping

Rated 4 out of 5 by from More than I expected. I expected to get some cheap thing but this Van Mark Bender is much a lot more heavy duty. The only problem is trying to get it on top of the van, this thing got some weight to it. However at a little over 8' it fits well inside the van if you got the center cleared.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If it ain't broke- brake it!!! Love this Trim a Brake II. The price point is great for this unit. Although it is a starter unit it is STURDY AND WELL BUILT!! Assembly was simple and for me no additional setup or adjustments were needed. I want to emphasize that this brake is built to last. It may not hemm but I'm telling you for the money I'm very, very impressed. Much more than I expected. Can't wait until the weather clears and I can really put this baby to work! Cons. Can't think of a thing.
