The newest and most compact current model in the Brokk demolition robot family, the remote-controlled Brokk 50 weighs 1,050 pounds and, at a width of 24 inches, can fit through standard doors and fit in most elevators. It retains the footprint of the Brokk 40 model it replaces, but is designed to match the production of a 1.5-metric-ton mini-excavator. An option to hand-held demolition tools, the tracked Brokk 50 comes equipped with a 150-foot-pound hydraulic breaker. As its bigger brothers can, the electric-powered Brokk 50 is able to climb stairs and can accommodate multiple tools.
