The RCS 80 rebar cutting shear from Stanley LaBounty, Two Harbors, Minn., addresses the growing problem of how to process rebar efficiently and profitably. Its unique design—for excavators weighing 70,000 to 100,000 lb—maximizes the power generated from an excavator’s bucket linkage. The RCS 80 (Circle 923) features staggered blades in the upper jaw hold and processes rebar as it bypasses into the lower jaw. The RCS 80, weighing approximately 8,500 lb, has enough mass to absorb the shock loads generated during a rebar cutting application. This leads to not only a longer attachment life, but also less wear and tear on the excavator’s linkage, stick and hydraulic components.
