Probst Vacuum Handy VH Paver & Slab Lifter

The Probst Vacuum-Handy is an economical manual lifter for installation of non-porous pavers and slabs. It is ideal for landscapers who have to lift and place multiple pavers and slabs.

The vacuum suction force is produced by pressing the device down onto the surface of the slab. The slab can then be lifted by hand. To release the slab, use your fingertip to open a simple valve.
