LevelRight is DICA’s newest solution for operators of boom trucks, cranes, concrete pumps, jacking applications, and other equipment with outriggers that must be operated in a level condition. It can adjust the overall angle from 0-10 degrees and in two planes up to 5 degrees.

“It’s common for an operator to have to set up on uneven terrain, but on a hard surface where it’s more difficult to manipulate the ground under the outrigger, LevelRight is the perfect solution to ensure a safe and level set up,” said Kris Koberg, DICA’s CEO.

LevelRight Capabilities

LevelRight is made of SafetyTech material with DICA SafetyTexturing on the top and bottom surfaces. It also has a built-in bubble level to provide operators with confirmation when they have a level surface under their equipment’s outriggers. The 24-inch diameter LevelRight will accept up to a 20-inch square or 24-inch round outrigger float and has a rated capacity of 350,000 pounds.

“With LevelRight, we wanted to make the right way of doing things an easy way of doing things. For crane applications, using supporting materials such as outrigger or crane pads as the base layer is required to distribute the load. LevelRight fits between the pad and outrigger float to ensure the outrigger is placed on a flat and level surface,” said Kerry Koberg, sales director at DICA.

Kobrg explained how in situations where cribbing blocks are needed for extra height, LevelRight can be used as the base under DICA’s ProStack Cribbing Blocks to ensure the blocking is on a level surface.

LevelRight Introduction

DICA first introduced a prototype of LevelRight at CONEXPO-CON/AGG last year, and the response was significant, according to Koberg.

A pre-production demo debuted at the 2024 World of Concrete Show.

During that show, Scott Sutherland, the Canadian Concrete Pumper, with AJ’s Concrete Pumping in Vancouver, British Columbia, said “Problem solved, just like that! No more wedges, no more digging, no more shoveling. This is brilliant for leveling in two different axes.”

Production units are now available for shipping.
