Alligator shears designed for mobility, adjustability and power
Alligator shears play an important role for metal recyclers by cutting things down to size – literally – enabling shredders to handle oversized materials that would otherwise be difficult or sometimes impossible to digest. They also allow the recycler to “clean” or prepare scrap for shredding by removing unwanted fittings or other parts the shredder may not accept. This adds value to the scrap and improves the quality of finished frag.
Moley Magnetics’ latest-model Alligator Shears feature adjustable blade distance and an adjustable set screw to support the blade. A constant power piston pump optimizes all work stages and minimizes the power of the electric motor. The electric motor and the pump are also located outside the tank, so there is more oil available while oil heating is reduced. Thus, maintenance becomes considerably easier and simpler. Moley Alligator Shears also have cylinders with brake and chrome-plated and tempered rods, and gaskets have been devised specifically for high speeds and pressures.
