Weld Shears


Stanley’s powerful yet light-weight Weld Shear is the ideal tool for shearing Thermite welds with a force of over 20,000 lbs (89,000 Nm). The WS10’s efficient design allows welds to be sheared prior to dismantling the weld mold, decreasing the time to set up and increasing productivity. Powered by the truck’s PTO hydraulic system or available in a self contained handle pump version. The self contained model has an inline pump handle that eliminates rocking of the shear on the rail during the shearing operation.
