Alligator Shears

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. Alligator shears also allow the recycler to “clean” or prepare scrap for shredding by removing unwanted fittings or other parts the shredder may not accept.

Portable shear Alligator Shears
Our large stationary and mobile shears can be supplied with a squeeze box that will compress bulky material down to a size that will fit into the throat of the shear. Ely Enterprises also offers multi-purpose shear units that can bale or log material into products that can be shipped directly to a shredder or end-user.

Whatever your specific needs, Ely Enterprises can provide a shear solution to meet those needs!

Alligator shears are a popular part of recycling equipment. They provide a practical way of cutting metal bars, cable, wire tubes and more. When smaller pieces are needed, you should have suitable alligator shears on hand.
