Sell Sheet Metal Shear

Selling your Sheet Metal Shear with Revelation Machinery 

Shears are used to cut sheet metal, aluminum, paper, plastic and even wood.  Each machine has capabilities of cutting the thinnest metal to the absolute thickest one can withstand.  It usually is the first machine that is used when manufacturing fabricated parts. There are guillotine shears and swing beam shears.  A guillotine shear is the type that has the blade drive in a straight direction going down and up. A swing beam shear uses the power of leverage through a cantilevered ram to increase the tonnage which in turn increases the shearing capacity.  There are also two types of shear drive systems. We have hydraulic and mechanical shears. Mechanical machines are powered by a flywheel and the hydraulic machines are

powered by cylinders that forces the ram up and down. You will find our shear machines under the Fabrication machine category.

How do I sell my used shear machine with you?

Below is the information needed to begin the selling process.  Feel free to reach out to us with any questions about the below requirements.

First:  We must make an initial assessment of the machine.  We need the following information to be able to give you the best quote possible.


  • Make
  • Model
  • Year
  • Machine Type
  • Serial Number
  • Max Length
  • Max Thickness
  • Is it Hydraulic or Mechanical?       


Second: We will need photographs taken of the machine.  We may request

specific angles or components to show customers exactly what they are

potentially purchasing.  There are some components of machines that are

prone to wear, so these should be included. 

Taking high-quality photographs initially will be very helpful in moving the process along.

Third: We need to know what your floor requirements are.  Can you keep this machine on your

floor until it is sold?  Or do you need the machine off the floor immediately?  It is very expensive to move machines, so we can save you a lot of money if we keep the machine with you until we can find a buyer who will move the machine themselves.  There is also the option of consignment arrangements.

Finally: Once you have all of the information above, please contact us here and we will start the process!
