Brokk recently introduced the Brokk 170. With SmartPowerTM – the company’s signature intelligent power management system – the new machine offers 15% more power than its predecessor, the Brokk 160, but retains the same compact dimensions.
The Brokk 170 is one of four new next generation Brokk remote-controlled demolition machines Brokk launched at this year’s World of Concrete in Las Vegas.
“Contractors work in some of the most confined spaces and to get their jobs done successfully they can’t sacrifice power or safety,” said Martin Krupicka, president and CEO of Brokk Group. “That’s why maintaining the same footprint as the former model and boosting the machine’s power was a must. This new machine truly tests the limits of compact power.”
The Brokk 170 incorporates the revolutionary new SmartConcept™ system, which ensures improved performance and uptime. SmartConcept consists of three features: SmartPower, SmartDesign™ and SmartRemote™. SmartPower senses when the power supply is poor or faulty then compensates before damage to components occurs. This allows contractors to use the machine with generators or unreliable power sources.
SmartDesign extends machine life and provides unprecedented ease of maintenance due to 70% fewer cables, hardened components, LED headlights and easily accessible grease points and hydraulic hoses. An ergonomic remote-control, the SmartRemote, incorporates adjustable straps, intuitive controls and professional-grade radio technology with a 984-ft (300-m) working range.
Brokk equips each Brokk 170 with a 452-lb (205-kg) BHB 205 hydraulic breaker to deliver 299 foot-pounds (406 joules) with each blow. The machine can be paired with a wide variety of attachments for added versatility, including buckets, clamshell buckets, concrete crushers, grapples and metal shears.
As with all Brokk machines, the Brokk 170 offers superior reach and movement. The three-part arm extends to 16 ft (4.8 m) vertically and 14 ft (4.4 ms) horizontally. The machine also features 360 degrees of continuous rotation for optimal versatility on the jobsite.
Brokk 300, a next generation demolition robot
Also recently introduced ,the new Brokk 300, which features 40% more demolition power than its predecessor, the Brokk 280. It also boasts Brokk SmartConcept™ technological features that improve power management, reliability, maintainability and ergonomics.
The Brokk 300 is one of four new next generation Brokk remote-controlled demolition machines Brokk showcased at World of Concrete 2019 in Las Vegas.
“This new machine features a truly impressive power-to-weight ratio and the industry-leading smart technology,” said Martin Krupicka, Brokk Group CEO. “The design shows our engineers’ responsiveness to operators’ ever-increasing demands for using bigger, more powerful breakers without sacrificing safety or maneuverability or taking up more space on the jobsite.”
Like its predecessor, the mid-sized Brokk 300 is just 47.2 in (1.2 m) wide, but can handle larger attachments weighing as much as 1,102 lbs (500 kg).
With Brokk’s new SmartConcept system, operators also experience improved performance and uptime. SmartConcept consists of three features: SmartPower™, SmartDesign™ and SmartRemote™. The intelligent electrical system, SmartPower, protects the machine from the damage that can be caused by poor power supplies while optimizing power and hydraulic performance in extreme temperatures. SmartDesign extends machine life and provides unprecedented ease of maintenance due to 70% fewer cables as well as hardened components, LED headlights and easily accessible grease points and hydraulic hoses. An ergonomic remote-control box, the SmartRemote, incorporates adjustable straps, intuitive controls and professional-grade radio technology with a 984-ft (300-m) working range.
As with all Brokk machines, the Brokk 300 offers exceptional reach and movement. The three-part arm extends to 21 ft (6.5 m) vertically and 20 ft (6 m) horizontally. The arm also rotates 360 degrees for optimal flexibility.
Brokk outfits each Brokk 300 with a BHB 455 hydraulic breaker with 855 joules of hitting power. The machine also pairs seamlessly with beam grapples, clamshell buckets, concrete crushers, demolition and scoop buckets, drills, drum cutters, metal shears, planers, rock splitters, shotcrete nozzles, sorting grapples and rock splitters.
