Auto Shear

Powerful Solutions for Your Industrial Recycling Operation


Removing catalytic converters using conventional tools like angle grinders or reciprocating saws can be slow, tedious, or even dangerous, with plenty of sharp edges to catch your hands and arms. The AutoShear product from AutoDrain makes it quick and easy to cut catalytic converters free from salvage vehicles during the recycling process.

At Solid Equipment Company, we are proud to feature the AutoShear from our partners at AutoDrain. The tool is a cost-effective way to process catalytic converters faster, increasing profits for auto recyclers and salvage yards. Our company works with industrial recyclers, scrap yards, and salvage yards throughout the United States and Canada, providing valuable equipment that increases productivity, maximizes profits, and improves safety at these facilities. We offer both new and used industrial recycling equipment, and we work with our clients to find the best tools and equipment to meet their needs.

How Does the AutoShear Work?

The AutoShear is a portable, handled hydraulic shear that is specifically designed to remove catalytic converters quickly and safely. Simply slide the jaw of the shear over the top of the exhaust on one side of the catalytic converter, and activate the controls to close the blade, slicing through the exhaust pipe cleanly. Make a second cut on the other side of the catalytic converter to free it completely.
With its fast operation and powerful cuts, the AutoShear makes harvesting catalytic converters and the precious metals they contain easier than ever for auto-recycling facilities.
