Aquajet, a global leader in hydrodemolition machine manufacturing, offers its farthest-reaching unit, the Aqua Cutter 710V Hydrodemolition robot. It’s the largest of its kind and offers exceptional horizontal, vertical and overhead reach — as high as 23 feet. The 710V comes equipped with Aquajet’s hallmark ceramic nozzles that last as much as 79% longer than standard steel versions. Its design makes it suitable for a wide variety of concrete removal tasks, such as renovation and bridge and road repair.
The 5,070-pound (2,300-kilogram) Aqua Cutter 710V uses 14,500- to 40,000-psi water jets to remove as much as 35 cubic feet (1 cubic meter) per hour of concrete. Contractors adjust the robot’s stroke to control the depth of cuts and vary the pressure of the water jet depending on whether they are removing loose, deteriorated concrete or lowering the sound concrete to a pre-determined depth. A valuable feature of hydrodemolition is that rebar is cleaned and descaled during the process, whereas alternative methods, such as pneumatic tools or milling machines, may damage the rebar or produce microfracturing in the remaining concrete.
Operators can control the 710V from a safe distance using the unit’s radio remote control, either wirelessly or with a hard wire. The remote communicates with the robot’s wheeled power control module.
