Brock Rentals upgrades fleet with Brokk’s smart machines

Brokk recently finalised a deal with Brock Rentals Inc to upgrade the rental company’s fleet of remote-controlled demolition units with 12 next-generation models, including Brokk 110s, 170s, 200s and 300s. The new models feature Brokk’s signature SmartConcept™ technology, which revolutionises power management, design and ergonomics to maximise productivity over previous models. With the new models, Brock Rentals’ fleet now features more than 50 Brokk remote-controlled machines — from the compact Brokk 60 to the heavy-duty Brokk 400 — ready for deployment to jobsites across North America.

“We’ve always relied on the safety and productivity of Brokk machines to provide viable solutions for our customers in refractory, chemical, nuclear, demolition and general construction industries,” said Tomas Lundstrom, President, Brock Rentals. “The next-generation models offer the best power-to-weight ratio on the market — in some cases doubling the power over our current models with only a slight increase in weight and dimension — opening up new opportunities and applications for our clients. In addition, they are more dependable and easier to service, making them ideal for the rental industry where machines seldom come back to the shop without some signs of use.”

Equipped with Brokk’s SmartConcept technology, the new machines provide a number of safety and efficiency enhancing benefits for Brock Rentals’ customers. The intelligent electrical system, SmartPower™, protects the machine from the damage that can be caused by poor power supplies while optimising power and hydraulic performance in extreme temperatures. SmartDesign™ extends machine life and provides unprecedented ease of maintenance due to 70 per cent fewer cables as well as hardened components, LED headlights and easily accessible grease points and hydraulic hoses. An ergonomic remote-control box, the SmartRemote™, incorporates adjustable straps, intuitive controls and professional-grade radio technology with a 984-ft (300-m) working range.

“Brokk has always been the industry leader when it comes to technology, capabilities and raw power,” said Lars Lindgren, President, Brokk Inc. “We continue to upgrade our machines to meet the needs of an ever-changing demolition industry. Working with companies like Brock Rentals allows us to reach new customers and see how our equipment performs in new applications — helping us continue to advance remote-controlled demolition equipment with more efficient machines and attachments.”
