The 11,050 kg (24,361 lb) machine was designed and manufactured by Brokk, the manufacturer of remote-controlled demolition machines and provides a 10 m (32 ft) reach, and, according to the manufacturer, power on par with a machine three times its size.

The industry-leading power to weight ratio makes the robot suited Frederico’s heavy-duty applications.

Lars Lindgren, president of Brokk Inc, said: “We’re excited to work with Fredico Demolition to showcase the safety and efficiency of one of our heaviest hitting demolition robots for the North American market.

The 800S features Brokk’s signature three-part arm. For heavy-duty demolition, the 800S can be equipped with 1,200 kg (2,646 lb) Epiroc MB 1200 breaker, and it can be also be used with concrete crushers, drum cutters, grapples, buckets, drilling equipment and metal shears.
