Standard Model AS Hydraulic Shear – Capacities from 1/4″ (6mm) to 1-1/2″ (38mm)
Models AS shears are 100% U. S. Made hydraulic, true guillotine drive shear with many standard features and an extremely wide variety of options to choose from. The hydraulics and electrics are complete including oil filter, disconnect switch, magnetic starter and control voltage transformer. A set of premium, four edge blades with shock resistant, chrome alloy are standard on all new shears. There is not a more heavy duty, versatile shear manufactured in the U.S.A. or any other country.
The models AS are a hydraulic shear with the advantage of full tonnage throughout the stroke, and full tonnage throughout the length of the table during the entire shearing process from start to finish. The system features a single hydraulic cylinder, this one large bore cylinder powers the bellcrank linkage system. This system has the advantage of a positive, precision mechanical drive coupled with the ease and safety of a hydraulic power plant. There are not multiple cylinders or pivoting swing-beam drives causing distortion. This drive system is how we provide full tonnage along the table and there is no balancing required, just straight tonnage.
