New Brokk 280 Features Increased Power, Tougher Design and Upgraded Electrical System

At Brokk, we’re constantly evolving to provide you with the best, most advanced remote-controlled technology on the market. That’s why we are excited to announce our newest generation Brokk 280.

The new machine features increased demolition power over its predecessor — the Brokk 260 — includes the all-new Brokk SmartPower™ electrical system, and incorporates additional hardened parts for extra durability in tough environments. The improvements increase the reliability and versatility for Brokk customers working on harsh jobsites in industries such as construction, metal processing, mining and nuclear.

“With 40 years of experience, we are uniquely qualified to keep pushing the limits of innovation for demolition robots,” said Martin Krupicka, Brokk Group CEO. “Our objective is to always maximize productivity, versatility and safety for our customers. The new Brokk 280 delivers on all fronts.”

The Brokk 280 packs the punch you need — generating as much as 25 percent more breaking performance — without sacrificing any of the compactness, precision and flexibility for which Brokk machines are known.

Brokk also introduces an all-new electrical system, Brokk SmartPower, on the Brokk 280. The intelligent system includes hardened components and fewer moving parts. Overall, the new system optimizes machine performance based on a number of factors, including power supply quality and ambient temperature. Its SmartPower intelligent motor monitors temperatures of the electric and hydraulic systems, resulting in a 60 percent increase in cooling capacity.

“For our customers, Brokk SmartPower means unparalleled reliability and industry-leading serviceability,” said Peter Bigwood, vice president of sales and marketing at Brokk Inc. “It’s one of the many enhancements we incorporated into the Brokk 280 design to improve contractors’ profits, safety and productivity on the toughest jobs, even in remote locations.”

In addition to improvements to its overall power and electrical systems, the Brokk 280 also features upgraded durability. This includes LED headlight protection, reinforced machine corners and a new steel gray color coating in strategic areas to add an additional level of resistance to dirt and scratches.

Like all Brokk equipment, the machine’s three-part arm can be equipped with a variety of attachments, from breakers, crushers and scabblers to shotcrete nozzles and rock splitters, and the same tools that fit the previous model B260 will also mount on the B280.

Brokk is launching the Brokk 280 at booth C4229, Jan. 17-20 during World of Concrete 2017. For more information about the Brokk 280, or other Brokk machines, visit our website.
