This IBEW Hour Power feature highlights one of the many NECA show stoppers from the 2018 NECA Show. The Greenlee Shear 30T increases efficiency to shearing strut and threaded rod. It features a laser-marked measuring system, die grooves, a quick die change system, automatic retraction, material rest, hydraulic hose through-hole, and a 30-ton hydraulic ram. It’s a powerful, fast, safe, and precise tool, which is why it was chosen for the show stopper award.

Dale Speggen, Product Manager, said, “This is a tool designed for shearing strut primarily right now, as well as threaded rod. Its benefits over a band or chop saw are that there are no metal shavings and no deburring needed.”
