GERMANY-based demolition tools manufacturer Darda has joined hands with its parent Swedish firm Brokk to present what it describes as a “perfect demolition solution”.

The solution, presented at bauma 2010 exhibition in Germany early this year, combines the power of Darda’s CC 520 concrete crushers and the CC 420 S steel cutters with Brokk’s specialised electro-hydraulic demolition robots.

Launched last year, the CC 520 with 350 kg deadweight has been designed to be mounted on mini-excavators and demolition robots.

At the show, Brokk unveiled the Brokk 260 and Brokk 400 models of demolition robots.

“The Brokk demolition robots are carrier machines specially designed for demolition works and are ideally geared to a variety of perfectly adapted attachments. For this reason, their performance by far exceeds that of normal mini-excavators, although their weight is significantly lower,” says a spokesman for Brokk.

Darda has been developing and producing hydraulic tools for decades and has many years of experience with concrete crushers that are mounted on a variety of carrier machines.

“The company has earned a worldwide reputation as an expert in the production of concrete crushers, which exceed the performance of all conventional crushers combining lowest possible weight and high breaking force,” says a spokesman for Darda.

“Darda stands for competence and know-how in the development, production and the sale of special, environment-friendly, hydraulic demolition tools. Quality, power and solutions to unconventional problems are most important in this sector. We can offer the right tool for most demolition jobs,” he adds.

Darda offers a wide variety of models ranging from the hand-held rock and concrete splitters for various demolition applications to the hydraulic combi-shears HCS 6 in four models suited for core removals within buildings, among other applications. “Darda concrete crushers are ideally suited to Brokk robots,” the spokesman says.
