Caterpillar launch new MP300 Series multi-processor range

Cat MP324 multi-processor

Latest multi-processors feature a choice of up to six jaw sets to take on demolition job

CATERPILLAR Work Tools, the leading provider of wheel loader and excavator attachments, have introduced a new range of multi-processors for use on Cat hydraulic excavators.

The MP300 Series (MP318 and MP324 models) can handle virtually any demolition job simply by using the basic housing together with a choice of up to six available jaw sets. Further models will be added to the standard offering at a later stage.


‘We are applying technologies which reduce our customers' owning and operating costs to ensure they make more money when they choose Cat products and the Cat dealer network than they can with any competitive alternative,’ explained Richard J. Hermann, commercial manager at Caterpillar Work Tools.

‘This new generation of multi-processors uses patent-pending booster and speed valve technology, as well as a paten- pending jaw locking system, which helps to reduce costs and emissions for customers.’

The new MP300 Series builds on the success of its predecessor and is compact and light in construction, yet extremely strong in cutting and crushing capability. The housing's strong rotator provides a continuous 360 degree rotation that allows to carry out the demolition job quickly and precisely from any angle.

Caterpillar say the new MP300 Series will cement its position as the class leading and most versatile demolition tool.

Each Multi-Processor can be equipped with a wide selection of interchangeable jaws: Concrete Cutter (CC); Demolition (D); Pulveriser (P); Shear (S); Universal (U); and Tank Shear (TS).

With one common housing and a properly selected sets of jaws, a contractor can achieve exceptional flexibility with minimum investment and accomplish most tasks encountered on a demolition job. The various jaws can be quickly installed or changed. Instead of taking about 25min to change the jaws with the previous Series, it now takes 10min with only basic tools needed.

Whenever the jaws meet resistance, an integral hydraulic speedbooster automatically kicks in. According to Caterpillar, the new booster design combines a speed valve and new smaller cylinder which nearly halves the jaw open/close cycle times.
