MONROE, Wash – FREDERICO Demolition, a leading New York-based demolition company, recently began operating the largest demolition robot in the North America construction market. The 24,361-pound (11,050-kilogram) Brokk 800S — designed and manufactured by Brokk, the world’s leading manufacturer of remote-controlled demolition machines — provides a 32-foot (10-meter) reach, and power on par with a machine three times its size. The industry-leading power to weight ratio makes the robot an ideal choice for FREDERICO Demolition’s heavy-duty applications.
“As innovators in the field of robotic demolition, Brokk is always looking for forward-thinking businesses that understand the value our equipment provides,” said Lars Lindgren, president of Brokk Inc. “We’re excited to work with FREDERICO Demolition to showcase the safety and efficiency of one of Brokk’s heaviest hitting demolition robots for the North American market. FREDERICO Demolition has a long history of bringing the right tools to the jobsite for optimal safety and efficiency in every project they take on. The unmatched power-to-weight ratio of the 800S opens up new opportunites for heavy-duty demolition in confined spaces and urban areas.”
The Brokk 800S features the company’s signature three-part arm which provides unrivaled maneuverability and an attachment capacity on par with much larger equipment. For heavy-duty demolition, the 800S can be equipped with the 2,646-pound (1,200-kilogram) Epiroc MB 1200 breaker, an attachment usually recommended for 33,000 to 57,000-pound (15,000 to 26,000-kilogram) excavators. The 800S can be used with concrete crushers, drum cutters, grapples, buckets, drilling equipment and metal shears, as well for maximum application flexibility.
Through several generations, FREDERICO Demoliton has built a reputation for superior performance through creative solutions and cutting-edge methodology. Their passion for smarter and safer demolition work has led to a growing fleet of robotic demolition equipment. The Brokk 800S is their seventh robot and rounds out the capabilities of their fleet for tunneling and specialty applications, including mass, structural and concrete demolition. FREDERICO Demolition also offers disaster recovery and environmental cleanup services in addition to specialty demolition for both private and public entities along the Eastern Seaboard.
“To provide exemplary results every time, you need the right tools for the job; for us, that’s Brokk demolition robots,” said Mark Frederico, owner of FREDERICO Demolition. “Our Brokk robots provide a lot of power in a small package, which allows us to bring a hard-hitting machine into a tight space. The range of attachments also increases our versatility to tackle a variety of specialty demolition projects.”
Throughout the acquisition and deployment, FREDERICO Demolition worked with Brokk Inc., which provides support from three locations throughout North America — Monroe, Washington, St. Joseph, Missouri, and Stanhope, New Jersey. In addition to sales, parts and equipment service, they offer on-site and virtual training options for new and existing Brokk customers.
