The Model 48 Heavy Duty Pivot Shear by Swenson Shear with its 48″ blade is ideal for shearing heavy gauge exposed-fastener panels, with the ability to shear straight at 90° and up to a 8/12 gable. The custom blades match any panel profile, providing a clean cut, eliminating burred edges and flying metal. The shear is transportable and weighs around 140 lbs.
The Model 48 Shear features an interchangeable blade to accommodate any manufacturer’s panel profile. Separate blades will be needed for each blade profile or to achieve various gable angles. The recommended maximum gauge thickness is 24. Shearing panels thicker than 24ga may increase wearing of blades.
