This week’s Masterhitch news focuses on the brand, Brokk. As the construction world is looking to convert to electric diggers, we take a look at the original electric digger, the history of the company and how Masterhitch can help. Are you new to the construction industry? Have you heard of the Brokk brand? Brokk are known for the creation of the definitive demolition robot. To date, over 7000 machines are used worldwide for various construction projects.
In 1976, entrepreneurs from PE Holmgren and Riveteknik joined together and developed the first Brokk remote-controlled robot in Sweden. Since this monumental period in time, the vision for Brokk focuses on looking to the future, and replacing dangerous tasks that would otherwise be carried out by a workforce. They aim to carry out these tasks using Brokk machines that are controlled by skilled operators.
In 1981, the Brokk 250 emerged as the first mass produced remote controlled demolition machine. A few years on, various other models were made. Customers are beginning to purchase the Brokk 110 and 150 machines, which are being produced in new international subsidiaries around the world including the USA and the UK in 2000, as well as China in 2005.
In 2011 the biggest Brokk robot was produced, the Brokk 800. Weighing 11300kg with a recommended attachment weight of up to 600kg, the compact but powerful machine is suitable for a lot of heavy-duty work.
Did you know that Brokk machines were used to help clear the site after 9/11 attack? As well as containing the nuclear disaster at the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan, during the tsunami strike in 2011?
In 2016, Brokk celebrated 40 years of producing innovative construction products.
Brokk machinery can be used for the following areas:
Why should you choose Brokk?
As it is remote controlled it enables a safe working environment for all construction workers, especially when a larger Brokk machine is used, for example the Brokk 800.
The all-electric Brokk digger will ensure the noise and vibration levels are kept to a low. This would be perfect for noise-sensitive areas, especially urban and built up areas.
Brokk machinery is very versatile, with an ever-growing list of Brokk attachments and buckets, you’ll be sure to find something suitable for the job at hand.
As Brokk machines is compact and agile it can fit into restrictive spaces and complete certain tasks, that a standard excavator wouldn’t be able to do. They are great for climbing over debris on a demolition site, and moving from floor to floor quickly in a multi-storey building.
