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 kind of scrap metal you want to cut through. Alligator shears are used around the world in scrap and junk yards to help clear away non-ferrous materials by cutting them into smaller, easier to manage pieces, and also cleaning for non-ferrous metals.

Industrial shears can help you process:

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

The 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 (16″, 20″, and 24″) depending on the application.

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 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. 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 very specific dimension, your handheld hydraulic shears are the ideal tool for the job.
