  • Operated by Remote Control unit at a distance of 100 to 300 feet away from the Grab Bucket and thus it is safe & comfortable for the operator.
  • Protection is provided to prevent mis-operation of the Grab by foreign radio wave.
  • Grab opening can be controlled at any interval of time to discharge the cargo into limited opening of hoppers.
  • Receiver/transmitter frequencies are encoded at factory, so that multiple Grab Buckets can operate in close proximity with respective unit only.
  • Removable spill plates are provided for multiple capacities.
  • Strong grabbing power.
  • Manual mechanism provided for emergency operation.
  • Opening of Grab can be controlled at any interval of time for control discharge of cargo.
