Incorporating innovation into our day-to-day demolition tasks.
Since 2015, PCS, Inc. has added several Husqvarna DXR 140 Remote Controlled Demolition Robots to our growing fleet of selective demolition equipment. These robots are the latest, cutting edge technology that are fast, efficient & offer the maximum safety benefits to our employees. We pride ourselves on having the latest equipment available that improves our efficiency & maximizes the safety benefits for our workers.
Since acquiring these robots, we are continuing to determine the value that they are providing our company. The physical capabilities of the machines, along with the ability to get into most of our jobsites, make them a very nice complement to our ongoing operations.
Attachments & Capabilities
The Bucket is ideal for concrete slabs that have been cut and need to be lifted, heavy pieces of steel that need to be held while torch cut, large motors that need to be moved, etc.
The Concrete Crushers can open up to a width of 15” and easily “munch” through concrete curbs, stairs, pads, etc.
The Grapple can dead lift and maneuver up to 1,500 lbs. This is ideal for concrete slabs that have been cut and need to be lifted, heavy pieces of steel that need to be held while torch cut, large motors that need to be moved, etc.

It is important to remember that the intent of the units is to increase production and help reduce worker injuries. Utilizing these units allows us to reduce workers exposure to hazardous demolition activities.
Some areas we have witnessed the most impressive results with the DXR 140 come specifically with many of our day-to-day tasks. The hammer or breaker on the robots is possibly the most used attachment. The crowd favorite is the “Deck Buster” or “Elephant Foot.” This bit is designed to impact concrete surfaces with blunt force. It is designed to rattle the concrete rather than chip or chisel it. This is particularly attractive when demolishing concrete with a lot of rebar.
With these pieces of equipment complementing our current operation, we are yet again, making large advancements past our competition and contributing to the innovations of the construction industry. If a need to these machines is ever identified in the field, please pass along information to supervisors and we will get machines out to jobsites.
