picked up this power paper shear

has 44" cut
2hp original motor
the 5000 lb fork lift was bouncing tipping its rear stear tires up off the ground & the operatior had to lean back to get them down to turn to load
any one need a power shear

well i d love to do that but limited space
realy im out fitting & replacing  modern & import wood tools with old arn when the price is right this shears motor caught my eye the rest is cool . i still dont know what im going to do with it
cost me 300 miles of diesel fuel to pick it up for free & they loaded it
then he says it weighs about 5500 lbs please dont scrap it. was working fine when they took it out of the production floor (need the space) 6months ago & set it out side on a dock with a tarp over it

I've got a chance at an old Wards jig saw and a 4" jointer that I think is a Walker-Turner.  I'll let you know.  May need tech help so don't go away

that is an awesome shear, treat it kindly, they don't make them like that anymore.  It looks like a treasure to me.
