The Brokk 280 features a 6.2m reach and weighs 3.1t. The company said that by generating up to 25% more breaking performance over its predecessor, the Brokk 280 delivers a significant boost in productivity. The Brokk 280 also features improved maneouvering capabilities with softer, smoother movements.

The SmartPower system optimises machine performance based on a number of factors, including power supply quality and ambient temperature. It senses when a power supply is poor or faulty, making it suitable for generators or unreliable power supplies. The electrical system can also be set to work on worn fuses.

SmartPower uses dynamic effect control to monitor temperatures of the electric and hydraulic systems. It also tracks the electrical motor’s power usage and adjusts the machine to use more power in cold environments and less power in hot environments. This eliminates the need for an automatic shutoff for overheating.

The new machine enters the upper mid-range of Brokk’s line of nine demolition machines.
