The Stanley LaBounty MSD Saber Lube Series shears includes 12 shear models (ranging in weight from 8,700 to 42,000 pounds) that use a patent-pending lubrication system for automatically delivering grease to several areas of the upper jaw and blades — and to both slide pucks and the upper-jaw/cylinder connection. This strategic application of lubricant, says the company, greatly extends blade life, significantly reduces the time required for build-up welding, and provides enhanced cutting efficiency. The new shears incorporate a patented blade system, reversed cylinder for increased visibility, and dual slide pucks for precise jaw alignment. Estimated list price: $90,000 to $500,000.
