The unique remote-controlled JCB excavator in action at Birmingham New Street train station in the United Kingdom.JCB IN the United Kingdom has developed a unique, remotely-operated excavator for use by a specialist demolition contractor in Birmingham.

The made-to-order 21-tonne excavator combines a JCB JS190 upper structure with a JS220LC undercarriage and rubber track pads.

The result is a machine powerful enough to deploy a four-tonne multi-processor attachment without exceeding a gross weight of 25 tonnes.

The new excavator has been purpose-designed for a project redeveloping the Birmingham New Street train station and Grand Central shopping centre.

Its work involves the removal of existing reinforced concrete floors to create a void beneath the new atrium roof.

The current phase of the project will see the removal of 6000 tonnes of mass reinforced concrete. Some beams weigh as much as 80-90 tonnes and are 2.5 metres wide and 1.5 metres deep.

The remote control machine is designed for use on demolition projects that are deemed too dangerous to risk an operator in the cab or in contaminated structures where human access is unsafe.

An operator works the machine while positioned in a mobile elevated work platform or cherry picker above the beam being demolished, allowing for close assessment of the task at hand.
