The CGV-900 offers built-in compliance, allowing the unit to compensate for irregularities in part surfaces and maintain contact with a workpiece. The compliance force is adjustable, so users can fine-tune finishing processes in real time.

Compact Demolition Machine

March 26, 2012
Remote control and powerful performance in lightweight design
The lightweight nature of the Brokk 160 makes it easy to transport and operate on many inaccessible jobsites, with remote control to ensure operator safety.

BROKK AB, a manufacturer of remote-controlled demolition machines, is offering the Brokk 160 now in North America. It combines powerful performance and a lightweight design to offer the capabilities and flexibility to various industrial demands, in metal production and process, construction and demolition, mining and tunneling, and other specialty applications.

Designed to meet customer requests, the Brokk 160 boosts the mid-range offering of Brokk models and is a powerful, lighter replacement of the Brokk 180. Powered by a 25-horsepower electric motor, it’s 12% more powerful than the Brokk180 and offers the capacity and stability to carry all the same high-performance attachments. The unit features a reach of 15.8-feet with the included SB202 breaker.

The compact, lightweight nature of the Brokk 160 makes it easy to transport and permits operation on many inaccessible jobsites. With a height of just 4.1-feet and width of 2.6-feet, the Brokk 160 is compact and low-profile enough to work in the tightest, most restricted areas, while the emissions-free motor allows usage in confined spaces. Furthermore, the remote control box enables the operator to remain a safe distance away from hazards such as falling debris.

Excluding attachments, the Brokk 160 weighs in at 3,527-lb. Recommended maximum weight of attachments such as breakers, crushers, drills, and shears is 595-pounds.

In addition to the 160, Brokk offers eight models, ranging in size from the Brokk 50, at just 1,100-pounds, up to the Brokk 800, at 11-tons. The company also engineers and builds custom machines with special equipment such as cameras, extended arms, side-angling devices and cable drums.
