The grab is designed for manual and power-assisted handling of MAXIMA slabs (80×80×8 cm) and other slabs and flags with a side length from 61 to 101 cm. The jaws have been designed to protect the handled slabs and flags from damage. The dedicated plastic spacers also help protect the flag or slab top against scratching. The grab clamps the handled unit automatically under the weight of the latter. The handles are removable for easier shipping and storage. The lifting lug in the middle of the grab helps moving the tool hoisted on an excavator or a similar power loading machine. The powder-coated surfaces and galvanized steel handles ensure a high durability and a neat finish.
