    Branch benders, often referred to as levers, are used when a trunk or branch, in addition to being wired, must have additional pressure to bend it slowly into a different position. Actually, the bender works as a combination vise-lever, moving the branch or trunk until it reaches the desired position.
    Our five sizes of Branch Benders accept maximum branch diameters of 5/8” to 1 1/4”. The hooks and jacks are coated with red vinyl plastic to cushion the branch and minimize scuffing.


 This is the smallest of our Branch Benders - #170

#173 - #175 are similar to this
