Hurqvarna's DXR 140 is its third, and smallest, demolition robot to be launched

A third demolition robot was unveiled by Husqvarna at Bauma, as was predicted in the last issue of D&Ri. The DXR 140 weighs in at 960 kg (2,112 lb) and was develped to make using it more efficient and simple.

According to Thoma Nilsson, Husqvarna's business manager for demolition equipment, "The DXR 140 is our smallest and most lightweight model, but is still a very strong and powerful machine.

"The 15 kW motor allows the operator to utilise up to 100% of the breaker's force. If you choose our 11 kW motor instead, it can be run on a 16 A fuse."

The machine's compact design, with a width of just 77 cm, allows the machine to easily fit through most doorways, fit into elevators and easily be loaded onto a trailer.

A low slung body allows the operator a full view over the machine to provide a clear view of the work tool at the the end of the 360 degree rotatable boom.
