Husqvarna expands its range of demolition robot
08 February 2024
Husqvarna Construction has expanded its range of demolition robots, adding the DXR 95 as its fifth model in the product lineup.
The model, which weighs just over half a tonne and can be transported in a standard van, has a powertrain that delivers 9.8 kW of power and 250 bar of pressure to the end-of-arm tool.
With an upward reach of 3.16 m and a forward reach of 2.67 m, the tracked robot can be used for a range of applications, including underground rock breaking and chimney removal.
Daniel Lundberg, Global Product Manager at Husqvarna Construction, said: “With its superb power-to-weight ratio and small footprint, the DXR 95 answers the demand for a demolition robot that can fit into cramped or fragile environments – and truly deliver the power and performance that professionals need.”
A key feature of the machine is its “straightforward” remote control system.
As well as ergonomic joysticks and knobs that make it easy to select and change settings, the remote control system also provides written messages on a large LCD screen that makes it easy for users to understand machine feedback.
According to Husqvarna, the DXR 95 can deliver “consistently high performance” with minimal downtime, thanks to the addition of the manufacturer’s latest thermal management technology and a heavy-duty arm system with friction-welded cylinders.
An automatic greasing system for the breaker also helps to extend service intervals, by protecting vital component parts of the machine’s lower chassis.
“All components can be easily accessed and detached to make service and maintenance quick and trouble-free,” added Husqvarna.
“The DXR 95 also gives operators more flexibility. Using the remote control, they can easily tune parameters such as water, grease and hydraulic functions to suit their preferences – and even adjust the pressure and flow to match the requirements of non-standard tools”.
The sister model to the company’s existing DXR 315, 305, 275 and 145 machines, the DXR 95 is available with a range of optional extras and accessories, which include a dust reduction kit, the SB 102 and 52 breakers and the ER 40 rotary drum cutter.
