Testimonials

The AG Bender from Slick Tools has helped streamline our installs and is a hit with our install teams. It is faster, safer and consistent. Workmanship and quality are also great.

Joe Montoya – Senior Director of Residential Services, Namasté Solar Electric

This bender is slick, for real. Looking back I feel like bending by hand was the stone age. The adjustment is easy, it’s intuitive to use, you can make any length you need and you don’t have to blow out wrists with hand bending. It’s held up to the abuse it gets in the work van and looks like it will be around for a long time.

Davis Fogerty – Solar PV Installer, Namasté Solar Electric

I bend AG in less than half the time it used to take! Fast and easy! There is less work to do, and I get a more consistent bend on my AG! Actually really helpful.

3 reviews for AG Bender™ 7

  1. Andy Calderon

    Bending AG by hand used to take a massive amount of time away from working on a roof. The AG bender by Slick Tools takes 10 minutes to pull whatever you need for a 20 mod job! I highly recommend this tool for any installer. 10/10!

  2. Bailey Matthews- Active Energies Solar

    Living in the Rocky Mountains, we are constantly having to make return trips in the spring due to the snow pulling down the mesh. The AG Bender has added a level of durability that has saved us hundreds of dollars in repetitive repair trips. It also adds a much cleaner and nicer look to the project. Highly recommend this product!

  3. Marcus Soto – Redline Electric & Solar (verified owner)

    The AG Bender has definitely made installing rodent guard easier and faster. It also creates a nice look that that my team and myself can be proud of. We will be installing an AG Bender in all of our trailers. Would definitely recommend!!!
