The GRABO is the world's first portable vacuum lifter. With this best in a class power tool, we live up to our promise of “Heavy Lifting – Made Easy”. Now you don’t have to rely on bulky and complex heavy-lifters. Neither need you worry about unreliable, and often dangerous, manual suction cups for the job. With GRABO you get the best of both worlds.

The GRABO Plus is an ideal lifting tool for countertops, doors, panels, etc. The tool works perfectly with glass, wood, ceramic tiles, metals, and other materials. The tool works at a maximum vacuum capacity of 11.6 psi, with an optimum lifting capability of loads as heavy as 375 lbs or 170 kgs.

The GRABO is ergonomically designed to provide maximum work efficiency. It is lightweight and can be easily carried around in a tool kit. It is not just the portability that makes the tool unique, but it is the simple operation, performance, and overall build quality that make it premium. The tool is a game-changer for professionals in the building and construction industry.
The GRABO Plus is equipped with a strong vacuum pump, that works in tandem with a robust foam seal. To lift any flat slab of solid material, simply turn on the unit and place it straight on the surface.
