Remote Controlled Demolition

Remote controlled demolition is carried out using remote controlled equipment with a variety of attachments including hammers, crunchers, grabs, sheers, buckets and augers.

Being 3-phase electrically powered, these machines have a very high power-to-weight ratio compared to 360 excavators. They range in size from 0.5 tons up to 2.5 tons which will fit through single doorways and go up and down staircases to access difficult work areas. There are also machines that range from 2.5 tons up to 12 tons.

One of the advantages over conventional 360 degree excavators is that these machines can be operated remotely using industrial Bluetooth or radio technology. The machines have even been mounted with cameras and are very popular in the nuclear and demolition industries.

The major benefit of these machines is the total elimination of the operator to any hand/arm vibration syndrome with the smallest machine being capable of replacing or exposing many oporatives to HAVs who would be using air or electric breakers.
