Largest Brokk demolition robot arrives in North America
Frederico Demolition extend Brokk fleet with new 800S remote-controlled machine
NEW York-based Frederico Demolition have taken delivery of North America’s biggest remote-controlled demolition robot – the Brokk 800S.
The 11-tonne machine provides a 10m (32ft) reach and, according to Frederico, the industry-leading power-to-weight ratio makes the Brokk 800S suited to heavy-duty demolition applications.
Recognizing the need for a higher level of power in demolition, the 800S features Brokk’s three-part arm which provides manoeuvrability and large attachment capacity. For heavy-duty demolition, the 800S can be equipped with a 1,200kg Epiroc MB 1200 breaker.
The 800S demolition robot can also be used with concrete crushers, drum cutters, grapples, buckets, drilling equipment and metal shears for maximum application flexibility.
Lars Lindgren, president of Brokk, said: ‘We’re excited to work with Frederico Demolition to showcase the safety and efficiency of one of our heaviest hitting demolition robots for the North American market.
‘Frederico has a long history of bringing the right tools to the jobsite for optimal safety and efficiency in every project they take on. The unmatched power-to-weight ratio of the 800S opens up new opportunities for heavy-duty demolition in confined spaces and urban areas.’
The Brokk 800S is the demolition company's seventh remote-controlled robot, as Mark Frederico, owner of Frederico Demolition, commented: ‘Our Brokk robots provide a lot of power in a small package, which allows us to bring a hard-hitting machine into a tight space.
‘The range of attachments also increases our versatility to tackle a variety of specialty demolition projects.’
