Spider excavator

Developed by: MB Spezialabbruch GmbH & Co. KG
Development timeframe: 1985

This special demolition equipment designed by us is used for demolition of high industrial buildings.

The Spider Excavator owes its name to the six height-adjustable legs, which are arranged evenly around the main unit. The legs can all be separately controlled. Thus, they can compensate for the different levels of the demolition edge during the dismantling process.

A high level of safety is provided by remote control, which also allows operators to control the demolition process from a safe distance.

This special demolition device can be equipped with various hydraulic attachments, as needed. The undercarriage can be adjusted accordingly, depending on the size of the structure (diameter).

Since we have had good experience with the device over the course of many years, we are continuously developing it and improving its handling and effectiveness.
