The company, based near Koblenz, specialises in equipment and tools for the demolition industry. Gernot Tomaschäfsky, founder and owner, first saw the 340F UHD at Bauma in 2016, when Caterpillar launched its new demolition model. He purchased the excavator from local Cat dealer Zeppelin Baumaschinen.

Engineered for high-reach demolition work, the 340F UHD excavator has up to 22 m (72 ft) of vertical pin height and can handle loads up to 3.6 t at a 15 m (49 ft) horizontal reach. A boom coupling system allows to quickly configure the front to the task.

“We wanted to offer our customers full flexibility,” said Gernot Tomaschäfsky.

“It is especially important when a motorway bridge has to be demolished overnight or when reinforced industrial buildings and high residential flats need to be efficiently dismantled and disposed of.”
