The draw through cam type mandrel benders work much better than the push type benders. The push types will occasionally collapse a tube rather than bending it. That and "precision" bends are easier to do with a mandrel bender.

When I bent the cage in that Camaro I built from scratch I used a mandrel draw through cam type bender that used a hydraulic ram. It was actually a bender that electricians use to bend conduit but it worked real well on the 1 5/8" .125 wall mild steel tubing I used on that car.

I've seen the type of bender in that link you posted at a number of local shops but I've never used one. They seem to work well for those who have them though as I've seen some of their work.
