Brokk Inc. has released the TC120 Tank Cutter attachment. Manufactured by their sister company, Darda, this attachment delivers maximum cutting control and ultimate versatility for continuous steel cutting abilities.

The 47-by-17-in. (119 by 43 cm) TC120 tank cutter can be used with the Brokk 160, 260 and 400 models. The TC120 brings flexibility to the job site with its hydraulic rotation capabilities and 5 in. (12.7 cm) wide jaws. It exerts 75 tons (68 t) of cutting force at 7,250 psi to easily cut through .5 in. (1.3 cm) thick steel plate.

Although this attachment can be used in a variety of applications, such as in salvage yards and balers, it’s commonly employed for cutting steel tanks, pipes and vessels.

The most common method of cutting steel, an open-flame torch, poses a fire hazard when cutting into flammable tanks and vessels, and it can raise the risk of exposure to harmful emissions. By using the electric Brokk machine with the TC120 instead, operators reduce the risk of exposure to toxic emissions as well as prevent fires.

“This revolutionary product defines versatility. It combines power, efficiency and, above all, safety,” said Mike Martin, Brokk Inc.’s vice president of operations. “Safety is vital. When cutting tanks, you never know what you’ll run into. You don’t have to worry about that with the Brokk machine and TC120 combination. Since it’s electric, you reduce the risk that comes with cutting into potentially flammable tanks.”

More Features

In addition to heightened safety, the TC120 improves productivity by continuously cutting steel.

“For the first time in the industry, there’s a safe, easy, high-productivity option for cutting steel,” Martin said. “Combining the Brokk machine with the TC120 attachment is like powering a giant scissors — it slices through steel like a scissor to paper.”

The TC120 attachment also benefits contractors with its extended reach. Brokk machines’ remote capabilities, coupled with arms that extend as far as 27 ft. (8.2 m), easily reach places others can’t, improving efficiency while minimizing labor costs. Because it’s attached to a Brokk machine, it reduces the risk of injury to laborers by eliminating the need to climb scaffolds and ladders with torches to get to hard-to-reach spaces.

The TC120 is one of many Brokk attachments that can be quickly interchanged for greater versatility on a job site. Brokk Inc. supplies a wide range of remote-controlled machinery and attachments, maximizing productivity, improving efficiency and promoting safety.
