Wilton SHR Strut and Threaded Rod Shear

Wilton SHR Shear

Wilton Makes Simple, Safe Cuts to Strut, Threaded Rod, and More

The Wilton SHR Shear makes cutting Unistrut, Powerstrut, B-Line, Superstrut, back-to-back strut, and threaded rod safer and simpler. Unlike cutting with abrasives or saws, the Wilton SHR leaves you with a burr-free cut that you can install straight away.

What’s the Big Deal?

The Wilton SHR Strut and Threaded Rod Cutter sets up easily due to its compact size. It makes clean, fast cuts in metals that often take a little bit of time to both cut and clean up afterward. Insert the appropriate blade sets, and the SHR can tackle 1-5/8″ and 13/16″ strut, back-to-back, deep only, and Cooper B-Line 4D21 and 4D22 strut. They also make a single blade set available that lets you shear 1/4″, 3/8″, 1/2″, and 5/8″ threaded rod.

Cuts happen in around 3 seconds—and you don’t have to worry about deburring or any other secondary operation.

Wilton SHR Shear 30-ton cutter

But, while the Wilton SHR Shear makes cutting strut and threaded rod a snap with its 30-ton hydraulic cylinder, it’s not the only game in town. We’ve also seen a similar design before in the Greenlee Shear 30T.

Where the Wilton model distinguishes itself from the Greenlee 30T is in its compact frame. The Greenlee sits atop a portable rolling cart and works better as an all-in-one solution. It includes everything needed, including the power source.

The design of the Wilton SHR Shear seems more compact but requires a separate 10,000-psi hydraulic power source. For those with a hydraulic power source handy, the top handle on the Wilson makes it easy to pick and place the Wilton SHR Cutter anywhere you need it.

Hitachi G12SR3 Grinder Review

We found the Hitachi G12SR3 4-1/2 inch 6 amp angle grinder to be an easy to use tool that should be at the top of any handyman’s short list. Price, performance and ease of use make this an easy pick for someone looking to grab a flexible tool that can be used in tile, metalwork or concrete applications.

Hitachi C7SB2 Circular Saw Review

The Hitachi C7SB2 7-1/4 inch 15 amp circular saw is a workhorse product which can be found for a very reasonable price if you look hard enough. Its clean lines, comfortable feel, and powerful motor make it a decent saw for cutting, but clumsy depth and bevel adjustments give it at least some areas of improvement. This tool will do well in any handyman’s kit and some professionals may even find its lightweight styling is worth a second look.
