Though wrecking balls have their place in the demolition world, they can be difficult to control and require a great deal of room in which to work. Demolition shears are an excellent alternative, and these can be mounted to most excavators. Able to break apart or slice through different materials such as concrete, steel, and wood - they are often chosen when flame cutting would pose too great of a risk (1).
What Demolition Shears Do
Shears are specialist demolition equipment attached to an excavator and designed for the purpose of cutting different profiles of structural steel.
Demolition shares are hydraulic attachments that use high-performance cutting blades with exceptional cutting force to easily cut through all kinds of steel and aluminium bars and downsize bulky scrap. The shears are also effective in crushing both ferrous metals and non-ferrous materials. The shears often have a reversible bolt-on piercing tip on the shearing edges which enables them to be detached from the shears.
Examples of these shears is the Cayman mobile scrap shears, mobile rail shears (Rail Breaker), and other demolition attachments with high-cutting performance.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the average cost to ship demolition shears?
The distance is naturally the most significant variable, and the reason it's only possible to get an estimate with details. No matter the market price, closer points will be cheaper unless another factor comes into play.
Besides the distance between the pickup and dropoff locations, the traffic also impacts cost. If your delivery passes through a highly congested area, the drive will consume more fuel and cost more. This applies to the cities mentioned above, like New York.
The fee also changes according to factors like the price of fuel. Fuel has many indirect effects because its industry price constantly fluctuates, so keep the country's current state in mind.
What is the best option to ship demolition shears?
Since demolition shears are heavy equipment, they'll inevitably be more troublesome than usual machinery. It usually weighs 48,000 pounds, while the state limit is exactly 46,000 pounds making it an oversized load.
A lowboy trailer is the best choice because it's designed to be lower to the ground and hold much more weight. Its two-axle version only takes 40,000 pounds, but a four-axle variant can take around 80,000 pounds, which makes it suitable even for heavier models.
Some companies might use an RGN trailer because its removable gooseneck makes loading more accessible and efficient.
How many days may it take to ship demolition shears?
There are two aspects regarding the distance between points A and B. One is that farther away locations in remote areas are harder to access, and it'll naturally take longer for your delivery to reach.
But on the other hand, it'll also take a while if you're near a metropolitan and traffic becomes troublesome, especially if you're having the demolition shears delivered during a busy season. Big cities like New York or Miami will take time no matter what because of the traffic.
A shipping company will consider this when deciding the route for the driver, which also gives you an idea of why logistics is essential. And only a reputable transport company will excel in that department.
Why should I ship demolition shears?
It's better to hire a good shipping company rather than trying to transport it yourself because there are too many technical nuisances involved when transporting something on your own, especially if it's out of your current state.
Unless you're experienced, it's more complicated than you'd think to go with an extended trailer with a load on it. This is significant in this case because we're talking about heavy equipment that falls in the large load category.
Shipping using a company will be more convenient and much safer because experienced personnel will handle your demolition shears, ensuring no damage. Even though it's hard to damage it, it might still topple if you try to move it yourself.
Remember to choose a company carefully because legitimate establishments have insurance before they can transport big loads.
