Grabo Pro 20 Vacuum Lifter Electric Suction Cup (Digital)

GRABO Pro is equipped with a robust vacuum pump. The foam rubber vacuum seal on the GRABO Pro tool is strong and resistant to loss of vacuum pressure. Once the pressure pump is activated, it creates a strong suction and firmly attaches to any non-porous flat surface. The suction is strong enough to hold firm even loads as heavy as 375 lbs . In order to lift any slab of flat solid material, simply turn on the unit and place it straight on the surface. The GRABO Pro automatically monitors the vacuum and if vacuum pressure is lost the pump is automatically powered up until the vacuum pressure is restored.

The handle is also equipped with a digital display that shows the maximum weight that the GRABO Pro can safely lift at that very moment. The weight is displayed in both pounds and kgs.

The Pro-Lifter is equipped with a smart digital pressure sensor. This makes it even more effective on different surfaces. With a simple press of a button the lifting function is automatically activated and regulated. The sensor automatically provides for the optimum level of suction, keeping objects in complete control whether the object is being lifted or even during movement.

The digital display on the grab handle shows the pressure applied in both bars and psi. With the pressure sensors, you don’t have to worry about turning the vacuum pump on or off. In fact, the automatic sensor is especially useful when lifting and moving coarse materials. The sensors digitally detect and maintain the required pressure while transferring the object being lifted . This provides for precision handling and installation without too much of a hassle. In any case the sensor automatically stops the pump on reaching maximum vacuum capacity of 11.6 PSI.

These are the materials the GRABO Pro can work with:

  • Glass. The GRABO is perfect for a glazier.
  • Laminated cardboard.
  • Plastics of all types.
  • Wood, both rough and smooth.
  • Metals. The GRABO sees no challenge in picking up metal with diamond plate or other uneven patterned surfaces.
  • Tiles, smooth and patterned/uneven surfaces.
  • GRABO works great with concrete, paving stones, granite and other less porous stones.
  • Dry Wall.

How Much Can the Grabo Plus Lift?

The maximum weight a GRABO Plus can hold depends on two things.

  1. The way you are carrying the material.
  2. They type of material you are carrying.

There are two ways you can use the GRABO plus to carry material.
Perpendicular  and Parallel

To carry an item Perpendicular means, you have placed the GRABO Plus flat on the top of the material in order to pick it up. You will then be carrying the item with it hanging underneath the GRABO unit, like a shopping bag.

Carrying an item Parallel means, you have the item from the side. This is something you may do with a door, or other large object that you cannot carry in a perpendicular fashion. By attaching the GRABO to the side of the item you can safely carry it beside you to its destination.

Different shapes and sizes of items will need a different approach, so the GRABO is designed to give you a firm and safe hold from both angles.

You also need to consider the weight of what you’re lifting to use the GRABO safely. This chart provides you with the safe guidelines for carrying the main materials you will find yourself using with GRABO technology.

NOTICE: Due to the high pressure that is created with GRABO we strongly recommend that you do not attempt to attach GRABO to glass thinner than 6mm thick. Damage can occur to glass that is thinner than 6mm thick.
