Model 16-50 - Hydraulic Alligator Shear



Sweed’s Model 16-50 Shear is ideal as a cleaning shear for light to medium reduction of ferrous and non-ferrous materials. The large oil reservoir and cooling unit allow this shear to operate in extreme weather conditions without overheating. This unit has a shearing capacity of 50 tons and a 16” blade length, making the Sweed 16-50 well suited for cutting skeleton plate, reinforcing bar, light mesh material and mild steel round bar.

Sweed’s alligator shears operate using a variable speed/pressure pump, which allows for fast cycle times while maintaining high cutting forces for tough scrap material. The 16-50 Shear features a remote foot control unit and incorporates a safety interlock, which opens the jaw at any point in the cycle immediately when the foot is removed from the pedal. Fork pockets are mounted at the base of each shear for ease of mobility, reducing strain on the operator and maximizing production.
