5 Ways Brokk Demolition Robots Outperform Traditional Methods

June 1, 2023

What are Brokk demolition robots?

The Brokk robot is a revolutionary machine that has transformed the way we approach demolition and maintenance. With their perfect combination of reliable experience and state-of-the-art technology, it’s safe to say that Brokk robots have quickly become a game-changer in the industry. With demand growing, the traditional methods of demolition simply couldn’t keep up - but Brokk robots have changed that. They have made demolition more efficient and effective than ever before.

Arguably, the most impressive feature of the Brokk is its ability to perform demolition with speed, safety and ease. Demolition is a process where the machine is used to break down concrete or other materials in a precise and controlled manner. It’s for this reason that the Brokk is so popular in the UK, where it has been used to demolish large structures and buildings with ease.

The Brokk robot is not just a demolition machine, it's also an excellent tool for maintenance work. It's remote-controlled, which means it can easily access hard-to-reach areas without putting workers at risk. This is particularly useful when dealing with high-rise buildings or structures that are difficult to access. The machine is incredibly versatile and can be used for a wide range of applications, including cleaning, drilling, and excavation.

It’s for this reason that our team uses Brokk robots for all of our demolition jobs - including our work on Old Trafford. We offer our commercial services across the United Kingdom, and our domestic services across the North West and East Midlands. 

What are Brokk machines used for?

Incredibly compact and versatile, Brokk robots are designed for demolition in confined spaces that larger machinery such as traditional excavators cannot reach - they can even climb stairs! However, that’s not to say that Brokk robots aren’t suitable for larger projects - they can actually outperform excavators much larger than them. Talk about small but mighty!

Brokk robots’ flexibility is essential in demolition work, as it allows for a more thorough and detailed approach.

How Brokk robots benefit construction workers

One of the biggest benefits to using Brokk robots is that they are designed to perform all sorts of demolition work without causing strain on operators. Injuries such as hernias are a significant problem for construction industry labourers in the UK due to the amount of lifting and moving involved in demolition work. 

 However, with Brokk machines, such problems are non-existent as they can effortlessly carry out heavy-duty tasks without difficulty. 

What size are Brokk robots?

With a range of sizes available, from the lightweight and easy-to-transport Brokk 40 at 384kg (846lbs), to the massive Brokk 800 at 11050kg (24363lbs), these machines are suitable for any demolition job. 

If you're working on a project that requires breaking screed, the Brokk 40 is the ideal choice. This lightweight machine can easily be transported to your job site and will make quick work of breaking through the material. Think - no more struggling with heavy tools or risking injury to yourself! The Brokk 40 is our top choice for smaller jobs where portability is key.

For larger projects, like taking down an entire building, the Brokk 800 is the go-to. This can reach up to 10 metres and can handle attachments up to 1200kg, making it perfect for even the toughest demolition jobs. And with its impressive size and power, you'll be able to complete your project in record time.
