We have no complaints about the pads and they have exceeded our expectations. They are very durable and reliable when supporting extreme weights. We tried a similar mat that was cheaper and found out the hard way that it was a mistake. They were not near as durable as the DICA outrigger pads and show severe signs of wear after very little use. After a year of use, the DICA pads are still in full service with no problems.
We trust these outrigger pads to support well over 200,000 lbs of weight distributed throughout the four outriggers of the crane. The only replacement we have made to these padss are the rope handles. We put to service several different models of DICA pads including the DR482, DR362, DUN23552. We are overall satisfied with DICA.
