What size outrigger pad do I need?
Call 800-610-3422 or click here to provide your contact information. We’ll ask a few basic questions about your equipment, current products and results you’re seeing. Our team will detail the best options for you based on your equipment, application, and desired results.
Are other plastic outrigger pads just like DICA’s?
No, they are definitely not the same. DICA has developed a proprietary formula and specifications that maximize our product consistency, strength, performance, and rigidity.
How do your outrigger pads compare to wood outrigger pads?
Wood is a natural material with a very high absorption rate. Due to absorption, wood fibers will splinter crack and break and have large variations of strength, stiffness, and reliability under pressure. All of which leads to unsafe conditions. In comparison, Safety Tech Outrigger Pads constructed of DICA’s proprietary engineered thermoplastic are virtually impervious to absorption and are guaranteed against splintering, cracking and breaking because of their reliable molecular, strength and stiffness properties. For more information, please see our Safety Tech vs. Wood page.
Do Safety Tech Outrigger Pads have a warranty?
Yes, put simply, “if you break it, we’ll replace it. Guaranteed.” For more information see our warranty page.
Can our company name be added to your outrigger pads?
Yes, we can engrave a company name or logo on the surface of all Safety Tech Outrigger Pads. ID stamping is also available on all square or rectangular pads.
Do your outrigger pads conduct electricity or create static electricity?
No. please see our usage and inspection guidelines page.
What are the minimum and maximum temperature operating ranges?
-40 to 180 Fahrenheit / -40 to 82.22 Celsius
Do you offer custom outrigger pad sizes, shapes, and thicknesses?
Yes, in addition to our 30+ standard models we regularly work with customers to design outrigger pad products specific to their needs.
Are your outrigger pads for bucket trucks resistant to water and chemicals?
Yes, they are impervious to water and resistant to chemicals commonly found on construction sites, parking areas and roads. Please contact us if you are concerned about a particular chemical.
The DICA outrigger pads were lightweight and heavy duty. The last time we sunk into the asphalt. These pads worked out very well to support our load and preserve the newly paved lot. – Steven J. Smith, Verizon Training Center
DICA SafetyTech outrigger pads have been a great purchase for our department. We use them with backhoes and our 22 ton crane. They haven’t failed like other outrigger pads we’ve used. – Richard Bylsma, Long Beach Water Department
“In the fleet management world, performing a cost benefit analysis is essential when specifying any equipment. It is human nature to gravitate toward a lower cost product, which often does not result in the lowest “life cost”. We have looked at different outrigger pads over the years and the DICA products come out on top for most applications. If a proper cost benefit analysis is completed, including longevity, functionality and safety considerations, the lifetime pad that DICA produces is a no brainer. – Mike Mosher, My Fleet Department
These pads are AWESOME!! – Mark Adcock, Adcock CranesRead More...
These are the best outrigger pads we have ever used. We have been using the same DICA outrigger pads for 10 years to place under the outriggers of the trucks that we dielectrically and acoustically test. We generally test 6-8 trucks a day on asphalt, concrete, gravel, and dirt. You will not have to rebuild them like the wood outrigger pads. I would recommend DICA outrigger pads to anyone who uses outriggers. – Mike Harbaugh, VP Protective Equipment Testing Laboratory
This is the best money we’ve spent all year! – Jim Mahan, Abilene High Lift Aerial
The Safety Tech outrigger pads are working great. Customers at job sites are impressed with the quality of these pads. – Dave Hartford, Brennan’s Crane Service Ltd
We have had super success with the DICA Outrigger Pads. The mobile crane operators and rigging personnel are glad to use an outrigger pad that weighs one tenth of what we have used in the past. Plus we no longer have to search the plant site for the pads since they can be stored on mobile cranes. Your outrigger pads have also been a solid investment safety wise by allowing mobile crane personnel to handle outrigger pads with minimal physical strain. – Rick L. Barr, Tri-State G & T
I love all of our DICA Outrigger Pads, and so do all of my employees. I want you to know that every crane in my fleet is equipped with a set of DICA Pads, and always will. Thanks for a wonderful product. – Ross Kovach, Rossco Crane & Rigging
We’ve been a customer of DICA for many years. and we believe in your Outrigger Pads. Our reputation rides on them, so to speak. The real plus for Crane Service, Inc. is the ability to perform as a durable crane mat for various ground conditions and availability and shipping are great. – Fred Hamby, Crane Service Inc.
The DICA Outrigger Pads are great I wish we had bought them sooner. My guess is they are the last pads I will ever buy unless I buy an additional crane – I think they will last forever. – Dan Muffoletto – President, Custom Welding & Fabricating, Inc.
