GRABO Pro vs. GRABO Plus

The GRABO Pro and GRABO Plus machines are vacuum lifters designed to handle heavy materials, but they have notable differences. 


The GRABO Plus is the original hand-held battery-powered vacuum lifter, revolutionising the handling of various materials, from tiles and stone to windows and furniture.

The GRABO Plus offers many benefits, notably reducing the strain and injury risk associated with the manual lifting of heavy objects. This vacuum slab lifter allows for a more controlled and ergonomic handling of objects, reducing accident potential and musculoskeletal issues. By minimising the physical strain on workers, the GRABO tile lifter enhances the safety within a work environment.

Whether you are working with heavy stones, seeking precise tile placement or moving awkward furniture alongside a removal company, the GRABO Plus offers manual control while matching the 170kg lifting capacity of the GRABO Pro.



The GRABO Pro is a cutting-edge vacuum lifter engineered with a focus on ergonomics. It features a digital display that provides real-time information about the maximum weight that can be safely lifted at any given moment. This vacuum lifter boasts a slimmer, ergonomic handle that offers a better grip and minimises user fatigue when dealing with heavy objects and awkward materials.

The GRABO Pro includes a smart pressure sensor that intelligently monitors and maintains optimal suction, ensuring secure lifting. The pressure sensor offers intelligent weight settings and enhanced functionality. It boasts an on-off switch that ensures the optimal suction level depending on the lifted material. 

Similarly to the GRABO Plus, the GRABO Pro offers a maximum lifting capacity of 170kg. With the help of auxiliary lifting straps, it remains effective across dusty, semi-porous, or rough surfaces.
