Brokk 500 demolition robot features 40 percent increase in power

The machine is equipped with the company’s new electrical system, Brokk SmartPower.


Brokk, a manufacturer of remote-controlled demolition robots with U.S. headquarters in Monroe, Washington, introduces the new Brokk 500, which features 40 percent more demolition power than the Brokk 400 as well as the Brokk SmartPower electrical system.

Brokk unveiled the Brokk 500 during ConExpo-Con/Agg in Las Vegas and at www.brokk.com.

“The Brokk 500 is a remarkable demonstration of how far we have come in getting the most demolition power possible out of a Brokk machine without adding to its size, largely thanks to our new Brokk SmartPower system,” says Martin Krupicka, Brokk Group CEO. “It is also yet another proof point of the resources we invest in product development; the Brokk 500 is the fourth new machine we released in just over a year’s time.”

The machine delivers 1,086 foot-pounds with each blow of the 1,510-pound Atlas Copco SB 702 hydraulic breaker. On top of that, it adds more length to Brokk’s signature three-part arm system, now reaching 24.3 feet vertically and 23 feet horizontally.

The Brokk 500 retains most of the compact proportions of the Brokk 400. Weighing 11,464 pounds, it is only slightly heavier, and the width of the machine is the same. It also is “backward compatible,” so all the tools and attachments used for the Brokk 400 can also be used on the new Brokk 500.

The Brokk 500 comes with Brokk’s new electrical system, Brokk SmartPower. The Brokk SmartPower system is designed for the tough operating environments of a demolition robot. Its components are either designed by or modified by Brokk to withstand the demolition forces over time. In addition, it helps the operator start the machine on a poor power supply while at the same time it protects the Brokk machine from any harmful faulty power.

The Brokk 500 will be available beginning May 2017.
