Brokk has introduced a compact, stationary breaker boom system for the mining and aggregates industry. The Brokk Pedestal Boom offers an unrivaled range of motion, pairing Brokk’s revolutionary three-part arm system with 360-degree slewing for maximum versatility in underground applications.
The machine can be operated with either a tethered remote or from a control room. Depending on network configuration, the Pedestal Boom can be maneuvered from 6,500 feet (2,000 meters) away or longer, using video monitoring and operation to increase safety and efficiency. At the same time, the machines feature a rugged design and compact footprint, continuing Brokk’s tradition of powerful solutions for confined spaces.
“Brokk saw an opportunity to give our customers a better solution for breaking oversize rock in crushing and grizzly applications. We’ve developed technology that is powerful, compact, flexible and easy to install,” said Martin Krupicka, president and CEO of Brokk Group.
“The new Brokk Pedestal Boom provides a plug-and-play solution that is perfect for underground spaces with low headroom or other space constraints. We are leveraging our 45 years of experience and proven technology platforms to create a smart, safe and user-friendly solution.”
Model sizes for the range include the Brokk 200, Brokk 300, Brokk 500 and the Brokk 900 Pedestal Boom, which is capable of producing 3,050 J/Nm at a rate of 330-680 blows per minute with the BHB 1500 breaker to power through even the toughest rock formations.
