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.
