We no longer stock outrigger pads of any sort.  We do however highly recommend a company in Red Deer.

They make them out of wood, do some of the best quality work we’ve seen, and we use their product in our safety training.

Contact them for a no-obligation quote, call CC Blocking (403) 358-2195 tell them we sent you.

Applications Include:

  • Cranes of all sizes
  • Trailer dolly legs
  • Load-all trailers
  • And many more

PROS:

  • Renewable resource – it’s good for the environment
  • Simple to make – Their outrigger pads are Douglas fir, waterproof polyurethane glue, pressed and screws installed from both sides ensure a solid, structurally sound crane outrigger pad.
  • Cost is typically lower than the poly style pads
  • Wood does not bend in the warm temperatures like the poly pads tend to (1″ thick poly pads ALWAYS bend), thus reducing the effective support area for the outrigger pad, harder to put back into the pad holder on the crane (goes from 1″ thick to 2″ thick depending on the distortion), this is NOT a good problem to have, eliminated with wood.

CONS:

  • Need typically thicker pad to (poly pads are typically 1″ thick, wood pads need to be minimum of 2″ thick)
  • Plywood laminate can deteriorate over extended time, thing of your rigging, when the rigging is worn and tattered (it should have been replaced a very long time ago), these are no different.
