New Brokk 200 a new weight class of remote-control demolition machine
Brokk has introduced the Brokk 200, a new weight class of machine. The new model packs the power of a 3-ton Brokk machine into a 2-ton package. The Brokk 200 is one of four new next generation remote-controlled demolition machines Brokk showcased at World of Concrete 2019 in Las Vegas.
The machine comes equipped with Brokk's signature SmartConcept technology for increased efficiency. SmartConcept includes the extra power of SmartPower, the added reliability of SmartDesign and enhanced ergonomics and productivity of SmartRemote.
"When we set out to design the Brokk 200 we saw an opportunity to support customers further by introducing a new weight class," said Martin Krupicka, President and CEO of Brokk Group. "The Brokk 200 allows contractors to work in tight spaces without a loss in power."
The 27.5-kilowatt machine operates tools with requirements typical of one weight class above. When paired with the new Brokk BHB 305 breaker, the unit's hitting power is increased by 40 percent. The new class of machine delivers 450 foot-pounds (610 joules) with each blow of the 650-pound (295-kilogram) hydraulic breaker.
In addition to its heightened power, the Brokk 200 offers 15 percent longer vertical and horizontal reach in a compact footprint similar to the Brokk 170. The extra chassis length and machine weight ensures proper balance, even when wielding heavy attachments, such as breakers, drum cutters, grapples and concrete crushers. The Brokk 200 is ideal for heavy duty, difficult-to-access projects and applications and represents the new standard in compact remote-controlled power.
For C&D recyclers, waste haulers, demolition contractors and landfills, there is a growing opportunity to profit from rethinking processes. Although every operation is different, by streamlining the front end of the C&D operation processes with purpose-built technologies, recyclers can tap into new end markets, accommodate higher material volumes, stay ahead of regulatory restrictions, increase recovery rates and add commodity revenue, while decreasing labor and other costs.
