What is the Digging Grab?

The Digging Grab, can also be known as a Clamshell Grab, just to avoid any confusion. Due to the unique design of the attachment, it clamps onto items and materials, to ensure a tight grip is maintained throughout the process. This particular type of digger attachment is used mainly on construction sites. Additionally it can be used for landscaping, as well as a handful of industrial projects.

What makes the Digging Grab so unique, we hear you ask? Well, although it is considered to be a digger attachment, it also doubles up to be utilised as a bucket. Therefore, making it incredibly handy for a multitude of tasks.

What is it used for?

The main uses for the Digging grab attachment include, but are not limited to:

  • Handling large amounts of material
  • Landscaping
  • Trench digging
  • Handling logs
  • Gravel and sand excavation
  • Plus dredging waterways

For anyone new to the industry, dredging refers to the removal of silt, sediments and debris that can be located at the bottom of lakes, rivers and large bodies of water.

What are the advantages of using a Digging Grab?

Still stuck deciding between the Digging Grab and another excavator attachment? Here’s how the Digging Grab can be advantageous for you:

  • Firstly, it can reach places that aren’t always easily accessible. When partnered up with a long reach excavator for example, the operator will be able to expand the radius of operation, reaching places that would otherwise have been quite tight to fit an excavator in
  • Secondly, this digger attachment also has a 360 degrees rotation. This will allow the operator to make the most of the attachment
  • Additionally, the Digging Grab is a powerful attachment, as it has been made with the best quality British Standard Steel, and is capable of lifting heavy soils, debris, as well as pretty much anything!
