Demolition Shears

What are Demolition Shears?

Demolition shears are mobile attachments that mount onto a wide variety of hydraulic excavators. Operators use demolition shears to dismantle structures such as buildings, roads and bridges and then process the resulting materials including steel and rebar.  

These hydraulic shears are very powerful tools designed to easily cut through steel plates, girders, aluminum and rebar to name a few materials. Genesis demolition shears are built for strength and durability using high-strength, abrasion-resistant steel. They are engineered for long life and to withstand harsh demolition conditions. Available in a variety of models, sizes, and jaw and teeth configurations to match the application, demolition shears increase processing efficiency and productivity.
