DICA’s ProStack Cribbing provides utility crews and municipal fleet operators with a solution for operating in uneven ground conditions.
Working along sloped roadsides or against curbs, utility crews can be faced with setting outrigger-enabled equipment on sloped or uneven ground. ProStack Cribbing has been developed with an interlocking design that provides additional height under outrigger floats when setting up in uneven ground conditions.
ProStack Cribbing has three basic parts: a basic outrigger pad, interlocking cribbing blocks and a high-friction top grip pad. The base ProStack Outrigger Pad is manufactured with a pyramid-shaped surface that interlocks with the cribbing blocks. On top of the base pad, operators stack layers of two 6-by-12-by-24-inch cribbing blocks with the pyramid-shape surface, that lock into the base pad. Lastly, a ProStack Grip Pad is placed on top of the stack to protect the pyramid surface on the cribbing blocks and provide a high friction surface for the outrigger foot.
ProStack is available in three Cribbing Kit options that include either a DR36-2, DR42-2, and DR48-2 base outrigger pad, along with four cribbing blocks and one grip pad. ProStack individual parts are also available for purchase, including Cribbing Wedges, which can be used on sloped surfaces to establish a level foundation under the ProStack Outrigger Pad.
