Site-Rite® / Site-Rite II® Description
The Greenlee heat-treated aluminum SITE-RITE® and malleable iron SITE-RITE II® benders are manually-powered tools intended to bend 1/2" through 1-1/4" EMT (electrical metallic tubing) and 1/2" through 1" rigid conduit.
This instruction manual is intended to familiarize operators and maintenance personnel with the safeoperation of the Greenlee SITE-RITE® and SITE-RITE II® Manual Benders. This manual should be kept available to all operating personnel.
A person who has not read and does not understand all operating instructions is not qualified to operate this tool. Failure to read and understand safety instructions could result in injury or death.
Inspect the tool for wear or damage. Replace worn, damaged,or missing components with Greenlee replacement parts. A worn, damaged, or improperly assembled component can fail, resulting in injury or property damage.
Use this tool for manufacturer’s intended use only. Use other than that for which the tool was intended can result in injury.

Site-Rite® / Site-Rite II® Bending — Handle Up
1. Mark the conduit. 2. Insert the conduit into the bender so that the arrow is aligned with the bending mark. 3. Place one foot on the bender as illustrated. Use heavy foot pressure on the bending shoe; maintain this pressure throughout the bend. 4. Look down the line of sight as illustrated. Stop bendingwhen the pin is in line with the appropriate angle mark. Note: Overbend rigid conduit slightly to compensate for springback.
Bending — Handle Down
4455 Boeing Dr., Rockford, IL 61109-2988 815/397-7070
Site-Rite® / Site-Rite II® Bending — Handle Down (cont’d)
1. Mark the conduit. 2. Insert the conduit into the bender so that the arrow is aligned with the bending mark. 3. Position thebender as shown, with your body as close to the bender as possible. 4. With the handle angled to prevent slipping, apply constant pressure against the conduit throughout the bend. 5. Bend until the edge of the conduit is in line with the degree scale as illustrated. Note: Overbend rigid conduit slightly to compensate for springback.
• • • • Line up all bends in the same plane.Bend 1/2" and 3/4" EMT with the handle down. Bend 1" and 1-1/4" conduit with the handle up. When bending with the handle up, work at a stairwell or loading dock so that previously made bends hang over the edge.
Marking the Conduit for 90° Stubs
1. Measure the length of the required stub. 2. Measure and mark this stub length on the conduit. This is Mark A. 3. See the deduct on the bendercasting. Measure and mark the deduct on the conduit as shown. This is Mark B, or the bending mark.

Site-Rite® / Site-Rite II® Back-to-Back 90° Stubs
1. Make the first 90° stub. 2. Fit the bent conduit into its final position and mark the Finish Line on the conduit, as shown. The Finish Line on the conduit is the bending mark. 3. Align thebending mark with the tip of the star and bend the conduit to 90°.
An offset is used to re-route the conduit to avoid an obstruction. An offset consists of two equal opposing bends. Two factors must be considered when selecting the offset angle. First, a steeper bend angle will require more pulling force. Second, a shallower bend angle will require more space.
