  • The catalytic converter is simply placed in the jaws and cut.
  • The movement of the jaws is directly controlled by the moveable foot pedal.
  • Once cut, the pinched ends of the converter can be re-opened using the purpose built side bracket attached to the top jaw and the unique removable V block on the bottom plate.
  • Once the can is opened the contents can easily be poured out.

The Dust Extraction System
