Brokk launches four demolition robots
The Brokk 170, Brokk 200, Brokk 300 and Brokk 520D models come with improvements in power-to-weight ratio
Brokk has launched four demolition robots with improvements in power-to-weight ratio, enabled by the Brokk SmartPower technology, which combines power management software with custom-designed hardware to maximize the hydraulic power output of a given motor size.
The four new models are the Brokk 170, Brokk 200, Brokk 300 and Brokk 520D.
The Brokk 170 replaces the Brokk 160 in the product lineup. With a 24kW SmartPower electric powertrain, the lightweight machine comes with 15% more demolition power than its predecessor. It packs a mean wallop with the new Brokk BHB 205 breaker and brutal crushing force with the new Darda CC440 crusher. It retains the compact physical dimensions as the Brokk 160 and the wide range of attachments are fully compatible between the two models.
The all new Brokk 200 fills the gap between the Brokk 170 and the Brokk 300 by squeezing the power of a 3100kg Brokk 280 into a 2100kg package, enabled by Brokk SmartPower technology. The 27.5kW machine carries tools one weight class above its size and brings the hydraulic power to match it. Compared to its smaller sibling Brokk 170, the Brokk 200 comes with the new Brokk BHB 305 breaker that hits 40% harder and the new stronger Darda CC480. The Brokk 200 has 15% longer vertical and horizontal reach while retaining most of the compact dimensions of the Brokk 160. The extra chassis length and machine weight ensures balance when wielding heavier and more powerful attachments.
The all new Brokk 300 replaces the fairly recent Brokk 280 model. It comes with a more powerful Brokk BHB 455 breaker delivering 40% more hitting power. Equipped with the new generation of Brokk SmartPower technology, power output is increased to 37kW delivering the hydraulic flow and pressure to fully power the heavier and more powerful attachments it is paired with. Slightly longer than the Brokk 280 and weighing 500kg more, the Brokk 300 retains the width and height, giving it access to the same confined work sites. A new arm system increases vertical and horizontal reach to 6.5 and 6.1 meters, respectively.
The Brokk 520D establishes a new standard for diesel-powered demolition robots with a larger hydraulic breaker that packs 40% more hitting power than the Brokk 400D it is replacing. This eco-friendly five-ton machine comes with two diesel engine options: a Stage 4/Tier 4 Final Kohler unit meeting the new EU and North American emission standards, and a Kubota model available for the rest of the world. The Brokk 520D is slightly heavier and longer than the old Brokk 400D, boasting a bigger BHB 705 breaker and a 250mm longer work reach. Its heavier-duty boom system and increased hydraulic performance enables it to handle the same wide range of heavier, more powerful attachments that are already available for the Brokk 500 released last year.
