The Avant grabbing tool is mainly intended for lifting and handling round objects. It is especially suited for nurseries and landscapers lifting barrels, plants and tree pots. The grabbing force can be adjusted, meaning various types of objects can be handled without damaging them. The grabbing tool is also equipped with two smaller, rubber padded grabs which allow handling of smaller and more fragile objects. When the grab is opened completely, it can life and move larger barrels, plants and tree pots.
