Bricking Solutions, a full solution provider of refractory installation equipment, partners with parent company, Brokk, the world’s leading manufacturer of remote-controlled demolition machines, to offer the Brokk Cart. The wheeled cart improves efficiency when moving remote-controlled demolition robots across hard, level surfaces, such as those in a maintenance shop. The Brokk Cart provides operators and technicians with a sturdy transportation and storage solution, allowing them to push select Brokk machines and smaller demolition robots without engaging the robot’s power.
“Bricking Solutions focuses on improving safety and efficiency on every jobsite,” said Heather Harding, Bricking Solutions managing director. “While we might be best known for our EX Flexx50 Bricking Machine, every product in our lineup addresses a challenge we saw in the industry. The Brokk Cart is no exception.”
Engaging the robot’s power to reposition it in a shop puts an unnecessary drain on productivity and resources. With diesel robots, using a Brokk Cart allows for quick transportation from one location to another while limiting emissions and fuel consumption. For electric units, the cart means crews don’t have to unroll power cables or have immediate access to a generator or high-voltage outlet just to move short distances. Additionally, in maintenance situations or in case of power failure, contractors can load the demolition robot onto the cart and then easily maneuver it around the shop without having to use a forklift in tight spaces.
The Brokk Cart features fork truck pockets for easy maneuverability with support equipment. Six swivel feet allow one to two operators to push the cart and its cargo by hand, as well. Once the cart and robot arrive at their destination, the cart’s leveling feet are lowered for stability. From there, the demolition robot can be offloaded if required, or remain on the Brokk Cart for maintenance or storage.
Made from T6-6061 aircraft-grade aluminum, the Brokk Cart supports up to 1,814 kilograms (4,000 pounds). Designed with Brokk demolition robots in mind, the cart is adjustable for use with the 560-kilogram (1,235-pound) Brokk 70, Brokk 110, Brokk 120DII all the way up to the 1,600 kilogram (3,527 pound) Brokk 170. The cart bed is 226 centimeters (89 inches) long with an adjustable width from 74 to 109 centimeters (29 to 43 inches). Low ground clearance means it can also be used with other demolition robots and small, tracked machines.
In addition to the Brokk Cart, Bricking Solutions manufactures customized kiln access ramps and work platforms to increase efficiency and safety for refractory and other maintenance applications.
