The new Cat S365C and S385C Mobile Shears for scrap processing and demolition applications feature bolt-on piercing tips for thorough protection in critical wear areas, easy maintenance for optimal piercing performance, and field serviceability without welding. The shears also feature structural changes for extended durability.

The Cat bolt-on piercing tip design offers several advantages. The tip protects the moving jaw on both sides, effectively protecting the parent metal from wear as the moving jaw travels through the lower jaw. Additionally, the tip blades are fully reversible so that each blade provides two uses.

Common hand tools are all that is needed to reverse the blades, and the tip can be maintained without moving the knives in the jaw. The result is faster and easier maintenance. The Cat tip also uses identical parts for both sides of the jaw. This makes maintaining spare parts inventory simpler for both Cat dealers and customers.
