Continuous feed, fully automatic inclined shear
Achieve unparalleled productivity levels with this automatic inclined shear with open box. Just keep feeding and the machine will do the rest.
The HAWK scrap shear has been specifically designed for high volume bulky scrap processing.
With an inclined open feed box design just keep adding material into the box and let the machine process it automatically for you. This scrap monster is able to shear high quantities of material. Preparation of long material is no longer needed.
Feature & Benefits
Diesel engine or electric motor.
Self-sufficient (D) vs. lowest running/maintenance cost (E).
Reduce operator cost by running the shear directly from the feeding crane.
Hydraulic lifting legs.
Maximum flexibility with the self loading legs.
Main Technical Equipment Specification

Hold down force: 160 tons.
Side compression: 2 x 160 tons.
Box design: Continuous feed, sloping box.
There are two types of shears on the market.
One is a inclined shear like the GPS Hawk or Monster. The other is a press shear and baler/logger combined into one like the M generation and HS shear/baler systems from GPS. Depending on what your processing needs are it may be necessary to buy a shear-baler. The Gravity Feed Shears are your best choice if all you need to do is press and shear and you don’t want to make bales.
So what’s the difference between gravity feed shears and shear/balers?
The difference between a traditional horizontal shear and an inclined press shear like the Hawk, they both can process scrap but up until the point of shearing they work in a completely different way. To briefly explain and to make things clear, the traditional shear baler has a pressing box that makes a log which is then pushed to the pressing and cutting area.
The Hawk inclined shear features an open box at an angle that allows the scrap to slide down into the pressing and shearing area and therefore reduces the height of the machine to make it easier to load scrap metal with standard scrap loader. So where is the advantage? The inclined Gravity Feed Shears do not waste time trying to make a log consequently once you start up this type of scrap processing machinery it goes into an auto cycle. First of all you to simply place scrap on the slide (which is an angled chute). At this point the machine does the rest. Two opposite side pressing pusher blocks concentrate the demolition power of the Hawk to the final part of the box as a result this acts kind of lens focusing all the power in a small area, so where lids and wings give up.
The Hawk inclined shear is just starting to get going.
You can also forget the costly maintenance of lids, wings and long hydraulic cylinders. The important point is that the Hawk system really works best with medium to heavy scrap, therefore if you have this type of material then you can take advantages of almost 3 times the guillotine shear cuts per hour in a never ending cycle, so you can process more, have more flexibility for the heavy scrap, reducing your gas cutting and save on maintenance… but all this all comes with a price.. no scrap bales…
