"I got a grab from you a few weeks ago just and would
like to say that this thing is fantastic, wish I got one years ago,
ripped out 20m of conifer hedge 4m high today popped it onto
my lorry with no sweat. Cheers."

Freeman Garden Design and Maintenance Ltd

We've just had an Abiljo thumb fitted to our new JCB801-8 mini digger and can only describe it as a brilliant little gadget
We specialise in landscape gardening and garden maintenance, and I cant believe we've gone for so long with out one.
We had the thumb fitted by Abiljo at their workshops just over a week ago and so far it must have saved me what it cost already!
The first job we did was clearing some hedges, normally we would have taken our small tractor loader to clear up after ripping the hedges out, but with the thumb on we did everything with the JCB saving us time and fuel both in terms of the equipment we needed to shift to site and on the time to do the job.
We are now installing a rockery bank next to a small stream with rocks that weight anything up to 200kg which we would normally have unloaded and placed either by man handling or by slinging them off the digger, whereas with the thumb we unloaded all the rocks in a 10th of the time and are positioning them perfectly with no manual labour at all, this job alone will now take us less than half the time it would have done before

And your grab proves it's worth yet again, moving some very hefty logs just now. Earlier today I was shifting some stones weighing over half a ton with it. Yesterday I was moving a skip, a man cage and a bucket for a telehandler with it. Tomorrow I'll be harvesting seaweed off the beach with it. And last week I was moving compost at the local allotments with it… Really, I don't know how anybody manages without one! It's the best money I've ever spent on the digger, and it's in virtually daily use. I can't thank you enough!
