Reduce steel tanks and plate steel

Optimized for Plate
Pierce and cut steel plate, grain bins, water, oil and fuel tanks and plate steel scrap.

No Distortion
Jaw cuts a rectangular section as it works. The cut steel doesn't bend, staying flat for easy stacking.

Perfectly Sized
Deliver plate scrap that is sized for transport and mill requirements. Process on site for maximum efficiency.

50% Faster Cycle Time

Speed Booster
New speed booster technology dynamically shifts hydraulic force from speed to boost mode, depending on need.

Speed Booster
On open, oil is quickly recycled. Speed means less time waiting for jaw to open, or close to contact.

Speed Booster
When the jaw meets resistance, the jaw force drastically increases, for maximum crushing and cutting force.

Upto 19% More Force

Booster Technology
Hydaulic force is magnified when the jaw contacts material, quickly making the cut. Cut more per hour, ship more per shift, make more every day.

Compact Design
Center of gravity is kept as close as possible to the machine, letting you mount more power even on smaller excavators.

Integrated System
Cat Multi-Processors are designed for Cat Excavators. Programs for the MP are built into the Next Gen Cat operator display. Get maximum performance and total support with a complete Cat demolition solution.

15-minute Jaw Change

Jaw Locking System
Innovative jaw locking allows a single operator to easily change jaws in 15-minutes or less. Requires only standard hand tools.

Jaw Stand
Every jaw sits stable, even on the roughest work site, on the included jaw stand. Jaw stands fit any jaw of the same MP model size.

Durable and Maintainable

Replaceable Wear Parts
MP Jaws are protected with easily changed, individually replaceable wear parts. Protect your investment and maintain performance, quickly and economically.

Reversible Blades
Get two or four uses from every blade! Most cutting blades can be flipped in two ways, to use four different cutting edges. Get more production per cutter.

Protected Cylinder
Cylinder rod is armored to prevent damage, even when deep into debris. Main cylinder body is protected deep inside the housing.
