Probst VH Vacuum Handy Lifter – up to 25kg
Remove and install non-porous slabs quickly, easily and cheaply with the vacuum suction force of the Probst VH Vacuum Handy Lifter. Ideal for slightly textured or smooth slabs such as porcelain. (For highly textured, riven slabs such as sandstone look at the GRABO PRO)
The Handy Lifter VH-1/25 is designed for one-person handling over short distances and lifting 25kg. You can also buy the extra 2-person carry handle (VH2-HG) to add to the Handy Lifter so you can spread the weight of lifting slabs between two people.
VH Vacuum Handy Lifter is a more cost-effective solution for installing and removing non-porous slabs using a vacuum.
The vacuum suction force is produced when you press the Handy Lifter down onto the surface of the slab. Afterwards, the slab can be lifted by hand. To release the slab, just a finger tip is needed to open a simple valve.
Please note: the VH Vacuum Handy Lifter can only be used on non-porous materials close to the ground level. Never set the device down onto edges as this can damage the seal. Either set it down on an even surface. When storing, lay the Handy Lifter down sideways.
The vacuum handy VH, doesn’t have a power source driving the vacuum, it is best used for lifting slightly textured non porous materials (i.e flags or paving slabs that air or water can’t travel through easily), something like Indian sandstone which is highly textured and porous can’t be lifted with the VH, for this look to the GRABO Pro Lifter.
