Monroe, Washington-based Brokk Inc., a manufacturer of remote-controlled demolition machines, has introduced the BCP Planer Attachment for controlled material removal on walls, floors and ceilings for cleaning, renovation and restoration applications.
The three models in the BCP series are designed to work with the company’s remote-control demolition machines and offer up to 7 times the speed of handheld options while providing greater precision and safety for grinding, brushing or removing concrete, glue, carpet, tile and other materials, Brokk says. Hood and vacuum connections are also available, enabling operation in contaminated environments such as asbestos and nuclear applications.
“With the BCP Planer, our customers can tackle more jobs in more industries with confidence. The attachment streamlines removal applications by eliminating the need for bulky scaffolding and additional manpower and offers a degree of precision that handheld options just can’t match,” says Lars Lindgren, president of Brokk.
With a maximum cutting depth of 1/4 inch (.64 centimeters) per pass — 1/2 inch (1.3 centimeters) combined — and automatic leveling in all directions, the attachment provides high-quality, even removal across a wide area. For hazardous material removal, this creates significant savings by removing only the contaminated material and reducing waste handling costs.
The BCP Planer comes in three sizes designed for specific Brokk models. The BCP 215 pairs with the Brokk 110 or 120D. The attachment has a 10-inch (25.4-centimeter) drum and a stroke length of 51 inches (129.5 centimeters). The BCP 250 pairs with the Brokk 200 and has the same drum width as the 215 but offers a slightly larger working area with a travel length of 60 inches (152.4 centimeters). The largest in the series is the BCP 350, designed for the Brokk 300, 500 and 520D. This model has a drum width of 13 inches (33.2 centimeters) and a stroke length of 55 inches (139.7 centimeters).
