How does Grabo reduce the risk of damaging materials?

Published on 08/06/2023James Lewis

The Grabo, the world's first portable electric vacuum lifter, has taken the construction industry by storm, rapidly establishing itself as the most coveted on-site tool. Let's delve into how the Grabo can help protect materials on site.

Enhanced Grip on Construction Materials

The primary advantage of the Grabo lies in its ability to provide a significantly stronger grip on materials compared to human hands, thanks to its impressive suction power. The electric motor generates a vacuum seal that securely attaches the device to the product, eliminating the risk of dropping items due to sweaty palms, wet surfaces, or fatigued hands.

Improved Weight Distribution

While the Grabo cannot lighten the load of heavy materials, it does offer an advantage in terms of weight distribution. By utilising the Grabo, you can carry materials from positions that would be challenging to achieve with bare hands. For even greater efficacy, employing two Grabo devices enables optimal weight distribution and enhances the stability of the centre of gravity.

Electronic vs. Manual Vacuum Suction Lifting

While manual suction lifters have been available for some time and have been used in material handling, the Grabo offers distinct advantages. The powerful electric motor and pressure gauge of the Grabo provide confidence and reliability in the lifting process. Additionally, the Grabo Pro incorporates an automated on/off motor feature. This intelligent technology detects when a secure seal is established and automatically turns off the motor, preserving battery life. If the Grabo Pro senses a loss of grip, it promptly reactivates the motor, ensuring uninterrupted lifting operations.
