Q: Do I need any special tools or blades when working with GatorBar?
No. You can use all of the same tools that you are currently using when working with steel rebar- including field ties.
Q: Can I bend GatorBar?
It depends. GatorBar has a natural flexibility; however, it can not be bent to a 90 degree angle. For hard 90 degree angles it will need to be cut and field tied. 90's are available in 18" & 24" corners (25 Pc Sub-bundles).
