Cat B-Series Mobile Shears
April 22, 2009

3174-catThree Cat B-Series Mobile Shears — S320B, S325B and S340B — round out the six-model lineup of Caterpillar designed shears. The shears feature a redesigned lower jaw, wider jaw opening, new knife-retention system, new jaw-adjustment system, greater hydraulic power and boom or stick mounting options. The overall design assures optimum productivity, reliability and serviceability in the toughest metal reduction applications. The Cat B-Series models, featuring a robust 360-degree hydraulic-rotation system, match the capabilities of a broad range of Caterpillar hydraulic excavators used in scrap-metal processing and in demolition operations that require reduction of large structural elements. Among the significant features of the shears is the straight lower jaw, which flattens beams, pipes and columns and distributes the material evenly along its entire length.
