Hydraulic ALLIGATOR scrap shears are powered with electricity. The electric engine drives a pump which compresses liquid in two hydraulic servomotors. One is responsible for the clamp of the shears, the other - for the holding clamp. Liquid between the servomotors is circulated through an electro-hydraulic switch valve, which ensures equal distribution of the strength of pressure and cut.

When the shears operate, the material placed on the lower shear of ALLIGATOR is first held by the holding clamp, and then cut by the main shears clamp. The cut is effective thanks to the weight of the shears clamp and special design of high quality steel blade. Blades are on the mobile and stationary shears clamp. Each blade has four working edges. When one edge is worn down, rotate the blade to use another one.

Hydraulic ALLIGATOR scrap shears allow to adjust the height of spread of the shears. If you cut large quantities, you can lower both clamps to shorten the time between cuts and allow for fast and effective work. The clamps can be raised to cut larger materials.

The shears come also equipped with an automatic speed switch, which adjusts the strength and speed of the shears to the thickness and resistance of the material being cut, which saves a lot of electric energy.

Hydraulic ALLIGATOR scrap shears are controlled with a very convenient control panel - you can start or stop the work at any time.
