New Cat® Scarp and Demolition Shear S365C for Large Excavators on show at Samoter 2011

DEN BOSCH, The Netherlands, March 2011 – Caterpillar Work Tools, the leading provider of excavator and wheel loader attachments will showcase the new S365C at the Samoter exhibition in Verona, Italy. The new Cat® S365C Mobile Shear for scrap processing and demolition applications features a bolt-on piercing tip for thorough protection in critical wear areas, easy maintenance for optimal piercing performance, and field serviceability without welding. The shear also features structural changes for extended durability.

"We've been very pleased with the customer's response to our shear”, said David Becktel Commercial Manager Caterpillar Work Tools. “Scrap and demolition contractors are starting to realize the overwhelming benefits of dedicated work tools, especially the ones that are designed to be a perfect match to the machine and are backed up by world-class dealer, parts and service network.

Bolt-on piercing tip
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.

The Cat tip uses dowels to hold the tip halves solidly in alignment with the jaw and to bear the load as the tip moves in and out of the fixed jaw. The design maintains positive retention of the piercing blades regardless of opening or closing forces.    

Productive and durable
In addition to the bolt-on piercing tips, the new shear features bolt-on knife segments running the entire length of the lower jaw, which reduces the possibility of jamming when cutting thin metals. The straight-line knife position in the lower jaw increases effective shear force, and the rhomboid shape of the knives in the upper jaw boosts wire cutting performance in the apex.

For high productivity, the integrated speed valve reduces cycle time to less than 8 seconds. The heavy-duty rotation system enables the excavator to do more work without repositioning, and the system is designed to comfortably handle the maximum forces that the matching excavator can exert.

The shear is matched to Cat excavators for optimum use of excavator lift and hydraulic capabilities. For scrap processing, the S365C shear is ideal for boom mounting on the 336D L excavator, and it also can be boom mounted on the 345D L excavator. For demolition work, stick mount the S365C shear on a Cat 365C L or the recently introduced 374D L excavator.
All Caterpillar hydraulic work tools use Cat® HYDO™ Advanced 10 oil. This specially selected and controlled higher quality based oil provides longer life, extended temperature range, and overall system protection.
