  • Tank shear jaws feature blades covering the length of both jaws. The angle attacks vertical or horizontal plate steel with ease, making short work of grain mills and storage tanks.
  • You do more than one thing: you need to do it all. The Cat Multi-Processor is your versatile partner. Change from one jaw to another in less than twelve minutes.
  • Changing jaws is fast: taking a single operator less than twelve minutes. Change from job to job quickly, and get right back to work.
  • The innnovative SpeedBooster is the heart of the Cat Multi-Processor system. It delivers power when you need it, then speed when you don't. You get power without compromise, and production without equal.
  • You need equipment that lasts. The Cat Multi-Processor is build to endure, no matter what you throw at it.
  • The housing is the heart of the Cat Multi-Processor system. No matter what jaw set you're using, the powerful hydraulics, quick rotation and innovative speed booster will produce like no other.
  • Productivity means profit, and the Cat Multi-Processor is your key to productive demolition.
