Hydraulic Shears

Industrial Shears for Sale

At Solid Equipment Company, we offer the following hydraulic shear equipment for sale:

Forfex Shears 400, 500 & 600

Alligator Shears for Sale in the United States Forfex shears come with four-sided deep-hardened blades and are available in three different models: 400, 500, and 600. These units have 16″, 20″ and 24″ blades. This robust alligator shear is equipped with a mechanically adjustable hold-down clamp, preventing the material from kicking back, and is designed for the cleaning and cutting of non-ferrous materials. All three sizes have the same motor, pumps and cylinder size. The only difference is the blade length. Longer blades may be able to cut a radiator in one bit rather than cutting half, rotation 180 degrees and cutting again.

Holmatro Handheld Hydraulic Shear

Holmatro handheld hydraulic shears are powerful and portable cable cutter tools. They will handle more precise cuts than alligator shears and you can take the tool to the material rather than bringing the material to the shear. The handheld shear is easy to use and relatively lightweight. The high-pressure hydraulic tool can be used anywhere you need to go on the job. This industrial recycling tool can be used for separating specific metal types, such as copper from brass, but can also be used for cutting large diameter (armored) cable. Hydraulic shears are often used for separating individual car parts for reuse and recycling. This shear can also be used for many different demolition applications and can be used underwater, as well.


Hydraulic ShearsFor reducing and cutting large metal pieces into more manageable segments for industrial recycling purposes, the powerful A-600  from Solid Equipment Company is an excellent option. Safe to operate and highly adjustable, the A-600 E will cut all types of metal in nearly any format or shape, with 250 tons of force capability. The equipment is compact and durable. The A-600 model is designed to handle the toughest jobs, including high tensile strength, over sized pieces, stainless steel and titanium.

This cutter is great for cleaning your wire before granulation. Cuts off ends/plugs easily. Up to 1 ½” in diameter.

Alligator Shears for Heavy Work

Alligator shears are also called lever shears and crocodile shears. An alligator shear has a hinged jaw and smooth, heavy-duty “teeth” that can cut through essentially any scrap metal you want to cut through. Alligator shears are used around the world in scrapyards and junkyards to help clear away non-ferrous materials by cutting them into smaller, easier-to-manage pieces.

Industrial alligator shears can help you process:

  • Radiators
  • Cable/wire
  • Reinforced rebar
  • Extrusions
  • Catalytic converters

Alligator shears can quickly cut these products and more with its powerful shearing action and jaws made of high-tempered steel. These shears come in three different sizes depending on the application:

  • 16″
  • 20″
  • 24″

Industrial alligator shears are primarily used for processing non-ferrous metals by cutting them into much more manageable pieces. The alligator shears help to make it much easier for you to separate one metal from another.

While early versions of industrial shears used a flywheel to power the jaws, our alligator shears are much safer to work with and make the cuts more precise.

Precision Processing with Handheld Hydraulic Shears for Scrap Metal

While alligator shears do a great job with long, large pieces of stock and scrap, the unit is stationary and you must bring the material to the shear. Our handheld hydraulic shears from Holmatro are ergonomic and lighter in weight and will help you get the job done efficiently and correctly.

As its name implies, industrial shears are light enough to be used by hand, which makes them ideal for making more precise cuts and for shaping items. They also work great in the field to cut material down for transport purposes. We also have our Cat Cutter for extracting catalytic converters from scrap vehicles.

Handheld hydraulic shears have an upper and lower cutting surface that close in a shearing motion to cut through scrap metal. Handheld hydraulic industrial shears resemble a lobster claw with its two curved and jagged jaws that quickly dismantle scrap. They are also great for use on demotion jobs.

Want to cut the roof off of a scrapped car? Handheld shears will do it. Are you dealing with a large piece of scrap that’s too bulky to feed to alligator shears? Your handheld hydraulic industrial shears will cut out smaller sections. When you want a piece of scrap that is of a very specific dimension, your handheld hydraulic shears are the ideal tool for the job.

New & Used Industrial Shears for Sale

Alligator shears and handheld hydraulic industrial shears are relatively easy to use. They are essentially simple tools with very basic controls.

When you have hydraulic shears and alligator shears at your job site, you will have the best possible tools for your industrial recycling efforts and should be able to efficiently process scrap or make quick work of reducing the size of certain materials.
