MODEL 16-90

Provides a Large Cutting Capacity Within a Smaller Footprint




The 16-90 hydraulic alligator shear is Sweed’s heavy-duty cutter. This model offers a solution for customers in need of a larger cutting capacity
without the bulkiness of a bigger piece of equipment.

The 16-90 alligator shear features all of the benefits of the 16-50 shear. This includes a large reservoir and cooling unit, which allows the shear to operate in extreme weather conditions without overheating, and a stout 16” blade knife. However, with a 10HP motor the 16-90 offers nearly twice the cutting force (within the same footprint). This heavy-duty shear is suitable for cutting medium gauge ferrous and heavy non-ferrous materials.

Cutting Capacities
The recommended model of shear is determined by scrap size, scrap volume, and requested custom features. The following are materials commonly processed through the 16-90. Please consult a Sweed representative to determine the appropriate shear for your application.
