Taurus machines are ideal for the processing of loose scrap, whiteware or auto bodies. They come fully equipped with automatic shearing, baling and ejection cycles; as well as the latest PLC and computerized monitoring systems. You can also choose from stationary or mobile models.

Taurus machinery is built to last – with heavier gross weights, steel base frames, and twin heavy-duty shear cylinders. Many Taurus shears and balers are still in operation after 30 years. Discover more benefits under Features.

Intelligent Control Systems

Taurus offers the latest PLC and computerized monitoring systems. Additional software is available for performance tracking – not just of the Taurus shear, but all other machinery in your yard.

Patented folding wings

Material is downsized into a log faster with Taurus’ patented “folding wings”. All models come with these unique overlapping wings, which offer the additional benefit of minimized wear.

Twin shear head cylinders

Taurus shear/balers have two heavy-duty shear cylinders, positioned side by side. This prevents twisting and binding from occurring, as well as providing a more stable and balanced cut.

Steel base frame

All Taurus shears and balers come standard with steel base frames, for faster and easier installation. They do not require expensive foundations to be built – just a hard and flat surface to be positioned on.
