When it comes to red-blooded boys toys, Husqvarna's latest demolition robot takes the cake. The DXR 140 can pass through most doorways, fit in a lift or a standard trailer and the Bluetooth remote makes it easy to smash just about anything.
Indeed, the Bluetooth remote control comes with a clear plain text display showing when it’s time for various servicing jobs, such as oil refills and a change of oil filter.

“The DXR 140's 15 kW motor allows the operator to utilise up to 100 percent of the breaker’s force”, says Thomas Nilsson, Husqvarna Construction Equipment's Demolition Equipment Business Manager, “and if you choose our 11 kW motor instead, it can be run on a 16 amp fuse.”
The low-slung DXR 140 demolition robot is just 1.55 meters tall, offering the user a clear view over the machine, and hence enabling usage to be both safe and efficient. It has a reach of 3.7 meters and can be used with a breaker, bucket or crusher.
The DXR 140 is equipped with an efficient electrical fan and the same cooler as the DXR 310, assuring highly efficient cooling. The electrical proportional control of its hydraulic pump means efficient pressure and flow regulation. The result is a machine of high efficiency and with minimized thermal losses.
