There ya have it folks...
I love it when a plan comes together.
I love it even more when no one has to be put in harm's way to accomplish this plan!
Demolition is difficult, dirty, dangerous work. It is also necessary work. How best to keep workers safe in a demolition environment?

When the person comes out, the robots move in. Robotic demolition has been soaring in popularity. Demolition includes razing structures, but a growing demand for demo comes from retrofitting and repurposing existing structures.
That can be done by an operator on a skid steer with an attachment, but dust, fumes, falling debris, and other hazards have driven contractors to seek out other options to keep their workers safe; enter robotic options.
There are also demolition settings where the fumes and oxygen consumption of diesel- and even propane-powered equipment are not allowed due to worker safety. Electric robots answer all these concerns.
