How to use

The Smart Crusher for Maxi Power+ is recommended for the tough job of removing failed CIPP linings to save you from time consuming and very costly excavations. Its strong front stabilizing brushes, heavy duty shaft design, and robust cutting heads make it extremely reliable for working in difficult lining removal applications.

The Smart Sweeper+ is self-centralizing and side grinding, for instances where the collapsed material is around the wall of the pipe. 

There are two different cutting head options help to tackle the various types of lining collapses, which can be fitted to either the Smart Crusher or the Smart Sweeper+:

Flat Crusher Head - works best in situations where the collapse is either positioned in the center of the pipe or has fully collapsed to the bottom.
Drill Head - works best for partial collapses where the top of the lining has sagged. Use with the Smart Sweeper+ when a liner which is too big for the host pipe has been installed.

You may need to alternate between the two Head models on a project as a lining failure is often not uniform throughout.

Remaining edges can be removed with the Cyclone Premium Chain for 18mm (¾") Shaft and/or the Smart Cutter+.
