The GARDENA Gripper is an easy way to pick up waste and refuse that is easy on the back. It allows simple, comfortable gripping without troublesome bending over; at the press of a button, the refuse picked up with the steel, non-rusting spike can be easily released. The Gripper has a gripping and spiking function in one unit, thereby avoiding troublesome exchanging of parts. The metal ply section in the upper gripper arm is practical for scratching away, e.g. sticking leaves. With its rotatable and adjustable handle, the Gripper can be universally used for all situations. A robust and durable helper in the garden, suitable for right- and left-handed people.
