Genesis GDT590 demolition shears

The new GDT 590 are the largest demolition shears in the Razer product line.

Genesis Attachments has added a new model of demolition shears to its Razer product line.

Designed for high-reach applications, the GDT 590 has a jaw opening of 52 inches, a jaw depth of 46.5 inches and a reach of over 3.7 metres (12 ft).

Suitable for use with standard and most high-reach excavators, Genesis said the GDT 590 made the Razer line more versatile, allowing it to meet customer needs in applications such as bridge demolition, concrete recycling and C&D processing.

The model, which weighs 6.8 tonnes (7.5 US tons), is the fourth and largest size of shears to be added to the product line, joining the smaller GDT 190, 290 and 390 models.

According to Genesis, which first launched the Razer line in 2016, the entire tool range benefits from a lighter-weight design, customisable crushing teeth and a short, flat-top head with bolt-on bracket which enables the easy installation and switching of the attachments between excavators.
