An addition to Genesis ' XP Series shears, the GXP 2500 features a patented bolt-on piercing tip to eliminate welding downtime on the jobsite. Replacing the tip takes less than 30 minutes, says Genesis. The shear fits excavators in the 200,000-pound-plus range. The rotating model — GXP 2500R — provides more than 3,000 tons of cutting force at 5,000 psi. It fits excavators at 240,000 pounds plus. At a weight of 53,000 pounds (45,000 pounds for the non-rotating model), the GXP 2500R has a 48-inch jaw depth and jaw opening of 46 inches.
