Kris Koberg, CEO of DICA, was one of three outrigger pad industry experts recently asked about the current state of the industry in an article published by Crane Hot Line. Koberg believes that confusion about ground conditions and proper equipment setup is common in the industry. This led DICA and Industrial Training International (ITI) to develop educational courses focused on ground conditions and preparation when using mobile cranes.
“The importance of ground conditions and proper outrigger support for mobile cranes cannot be overstated, as following best practices in this area provides the foundation to any successful crane pick,” said Koberg. “We appreciate the opportunity to work and collaborate with ITI to make this subject matter available to the industry through a very accessible digital platform.”
