The Optimas hydraulic curbstone grab can be fitted to construction machinery already on site such as mini-excavators, wheeled loaders etc. without the need for extra tools. The curbstones are then usually removed directly from the supplied pack and laid. There is no need to lay out the individual paving stones along the site beforehand, and this saves considerably on pre-planning and time-on-job. This method of working not only cuts high wage costs but also reduces the heavy manual labour involved to a fraction of what was previously required.
The curbstone grab is suitable for laying both concrete and granite curbstones. A lateral extension can be fitted to cope with curbstones measuring more than the standard size of between 0.45 mm and 1.40 m. It is also possible to lay curbstone arcs.
The hydraulic Optimas curbstone grab used as an attachment for construction machinery is equipped with a corresponding trailer hitch and a pressure limiter valve. Any special equipment, such as, for example, the optional turning gear (360°) and other technical details are clarified before delivery.
