Frequently Asked Questions About Hydraulic Alligator Shears

Industrial alligator shears are used in scrap yards and junkyards to process various types of scrap metal. They can cut through materials such as radiators, cable/wire, reinforced rebar, extrusions, and catalytic converters, making them easier to manage.

These shears offer several benefits, including efficient scrap processing, versatility, and adaptability. They can handle large pieces of stock and scrap, effortlessly cutting through various materials like copper, brass, and aluminum. They are reliable, highly productive, and suitable for metal fabrication, recycling, and demolition applications.

New alligator shears will be more costly. Quality used hydraulic shears can be a good investment as well. With little extra maintenance compared to new equipment, you can save significantly on the upfront costs or upgrade to a larger, more powerful model for the same initial investment. At Solid Equipment Company, we offer a wide selection of new and high-quality used hydraulic shears.

Suppose you need hydraulic shears to fast process smaller components like sheet metal, automotive radiators, catalytic or exhaust systems that can be carried to the machine. In that case, alligator shears are the best option. There are available for both ferrous and non-ferrous metals in a range of sizes and capacities.

For disassembling items too large to carry to the shears, like car bodies, appliances, or large masses of cable and wire, handheld hydraulic shears are a good alternative and can be combined with stationary shears for a complete scrap processing solution.
