DICA introduced Cavity Pad Plus Outrigger Pads at the International Construction & Utility Equipment Expo (ICUEE), to be held Oct. 3-5 in Louisville, Ky. The Cavity Pad Plus model joins the company’s SafetyTech Outrigger Pad product line.

SafetyTech Outrigger Pads provide a strong, rigid, and easy-to-use foundation for a wide variety of outrigger-enabled equipment, including mobile cranes, digger derricks, aerials, and concrete pumps. The Cavity Pad Plus model is designed for equipment such as digger derricks and aerials that can operate in managed un-level conditions, which increases lateral forces.

Cavity Pad Plus features a 1-inch high footbrake with an inverted beveled design. The inverted bevel design traps the outrigger foot which prevents it from sliding off of the outrigger pad. The inverted beveled design creates a higher level of safety, and the color scheme adds to overall higher visibility. In addition, the new design contributed to reductions in manufacturing costs, enabling the company to lower prices.

Constructed of a proprietary engineered thermoplastic material, SafetyTech Outrigger Pads have crush ratings up to 750 psi and rated capacities up to 325,000 lbs.

DICA also announced expansions to its ProStack Interlocking Cribbing kits and announced it will begin offering model-specific owner’s manuals with all FireMax Crane Pad orders.
