National Air Shears provide an efficient cutting experience with a thoroughly integrated hydraulic unit and easy to operate control panel. The pedal is attached to a long flexible cable for convenience, allowing operators the freedom of placing it in their preferred working position. Furthermore, its shrouded foot switch automatically returns the unit back up when removed from use – ensuring both safety and productivity!
National Shears boast cutting heads constructed from D2 steel – a high-end alloy renowned for its impressive abrasion and wear resistance. The upper and lower blades are ground on all four sides, extending their working life twice as long than typical two-sided models. In addition to this increased strength of the cutter head, National machinery packs an extra punch with welded steel plate construction instead of traditional cast iron frames found in other brands.
