Robust and durable metal alligator shears for small and medium recycling operations

Our shears are designed to be used in scrapyards and are robust and durable enough to handle even the most challenging work environments. The foot petal control and hold-down clamp emphasize a safe operation while providing for simple usability. Metal shears from McIntyre are ideal for cutting through copper wire, round bar, square bar, flat sheet  metal, automotive aluminum scrap, whole gear-boxes, cylinder heads and blocks, and oversized gate valves, as well as other materials such as plastic and rubber.
