The Brokk 300 is a mid-sized, 47.2-inch (1.2-meter) wide machine capable of handling attachments weighing as much as 1,102 pounds (500 kilograms). Its onboard SmartConcept system consists of three features: SmartPower, SmartDesign and SmartRemote.

SmartPower, the intelligent electrical system, protects the machine from the damage that can be caused by poor power supplies while optimizing power and hydraulic performance in extreme temperatures.

SmartDesign aims to extend machine life and provide ease of maintenance by using fewer cables, and including hardened components, LED headlights and easily accessible grease points and hydraulic hoses.

An ergonomic remote-control box, the SmartRemote, incorporates adjustable straps, intuitive controls, and professional-grade radio technology with a 984-foot (300-meter) working range.

The Brokk 300 is equipped with a three-part arm that extends to 21 feet (6.5 meters) vertically and 20 feet (6 meters) horizontally. The arm also rotates 360 degrees for optimal flexibility.

Each machine has a BHB 455 hydraulic breaker with 855 joules of hitting power, but will also pair with grapples, concrete crushers, buckets, drills, drum cutters, shears, planers, and more.
