Husqvarna to Launch Demolition Robot

I to proudly work for Husqvarna

We have a customer that's just purchased a DXR310 and he has just commenced a job with it.
The operator rang me yesterday stating:
I'm amazed at what this thing can do. I've been operating excavators and breakers for 6 years now and I can't believe the power of this machine.
The power is incredible, its smashing it, it's a fantastic unit.
We ran it for 7hours non stop -- No Over Heating!

As Danny_Boy said be skeptical of anonymous reports on the internet and try our product side by side with the competition.
Our customer was also conncerned about this so called over heating issues - these rumours are now put to bed.

The hydrualic flow on a DRX is larger than on a Brokk 90 but the tank volume is smaller and that is essential to a cool hydraulic system. At tests it has been shown that the DRX140 reached a temperature of 85 degrees celcius 4 times faster that the Brokk 90.

Just wanted to set the record straight:

1. BRKMAN stated

"What was more disurbing was that the machine overheated very quickly and I found out that the hydraulic tank was only approximatly 3 Gallons!!"

The DXR140 is a 10 gallon hydraulic system (the Brokk 90 is a 9 gallon system). I have used the machine for many hours with many different customers and it never overheated. Our oil cooler is much larger than the competition, as anyone who has run the machine could easily see.

2. BRKMAN stated

"The machine had less than 60 hours on it and already it had several cracks in the arm system."

There has been no reported problems with arm cracks.

Like I said before, be skeptical of anonymous reports on the internet and try our product side by side with the competition. See for yourself who has a long way to go to "catch up."

Again, I proudly work for Husqvarna - anyone can contact me if they are interested in demonstrating our machines.

I put over 40 hours on a husqvarna robot and a whole lot more on brokks of all sizes. The main problem that I found with the machine was the delay. All digital machines have some delay but I found it to be very bad especially with the swing. The machine would swing another foot after letting go of the stick. Also the hammer would fire after letting go of the button in most cases it would not matter but something like cleaning beams gets ugly fast. The machine hits real hard and has lots of potential I just wonder why manufacturers don't fix some of the problems of the machine that they are copying before doing it

I recently had a chance to opertate the Husqvarna 140 model and noticed the same annoying delay. I think it is a function of using Bluetooth technology for the radio and not so easily fixed. What was more disurbing was that the machine overheated very quickly and I found out that the hydraulic tank was only approximatly 3 Gallons!! Very poor design and anyone with even the most basic knowledge of hydraulic system design would know that. The machine had less than 60 hours on it and already it had several cracks in the arm system. It is great that Brokk is finally getting some competition but the competition seems to have a long way to go yet to catch up.

While it's true there was a hammering delay that was fixed after field testing the prototype a few years back.

Husqvarna listens to our customers and that is invaluable in our design process. That is one of the reasons we were awarded with the most innovative product of 2011 at the World Of Concrete for our DXR140.

Again full disclosure, I proudly work for Husqvarna. Try any of our machines side by side with the competition - don't let me or anyone make up your mind for you.

In theory a brokk is a great machine and they hammer great. the problem is you have to be a full time mechanic as well as an operator on them. theres so much down time with them. You would think cat would build something similar... They can do what they did to Case when they started making backhoes and bobcat when they started making skidsteers, wipe them off the map....

They wanted to bring one out and demo us it last week but we turned them down for the simple reason we own 4 brokks in that class plus larger and smaller ones. stocking the parts we need for the brokks is enough of a expense to throw another machine in the works is not practicable for us and i think they will find this true with other brokk owners. it may be a great machine but for their real customer base the professional concrete cutter it's a lot of money to get off of in these times $100k plus. they deal a lot with the rental stores but this is not a machine to put out for rental without a operator we have tried it and what a nightmare it turned out to be.

I heard that there are like 5-10 in the us, and that it's great to handle.

I got this link on a story about a swiss company who tested it before buying, and I was told they tested "another" machine aswell that didn't manage to crush the concrete floor, so it seems to be strong enough.

I checked youtube but didn't find anything on there.

I haven't heard anyone using currently, that doesn't mean they aren't out there. I would hope that maybe someone from Europe can chime in.

I enjoy your site very much! Thank you. Here is a short joke: My wife is missingThe man approached the very beautiful woman in the large supermarket and asked, "You know, I've lost my wife here in the supermarket. Can you talk to me for a couple of minutes?" "Why?" "Because every time I talk to a beautiful woman my wife appears out of nowhere." I bought a pair new Air Jordan shoes from Nike Shoes,Jordan Shoes,Air Jordan are so cheap at OKNike.com. and I like my new jordan shoes very much, they are my favorite jordan shoes.

[FONT=Verdana]November marks the production start of Husqvarna's first demolition robot - a remote-controlled demolition machine developed by Husqvarna Construction Products in Jonsered, Sweden, the company reported.

"The use of demolition robots is becoming more common. Companies that already use our drilling and sawing equipment, often also carry out demolition work on construction sites. Through our extensive distribution network, we have a unique opportunity to manage the increasing demand for demolition robots," said Anders Stroby, head of Husqvarna Construction Products.

Demolition robots are used for all types of demolition tasks, and can also be used at construction sites where it is too dangerous for workers to enter. The Husqvarna DXR 310 is designed for applications such as light demolition and indoor work, as well as for use in sensitive environments such as within the processing industry.

Husqvarna DXR 310 The demolition robot has a 5.5 meter range. The robot's width of just 78 cm allows the machine to enter through doorways and narrow openings. The machine is maneuvered via a remote control equipped with Bluetooth technology, the company noted in a release.[/FONT]
