DICA Adds Special Duty Outrigger Pads to eCommerce Site

Dec. 1, 2021 - DICA continues to expand its product offerings on its new eCommerce portal.

The company’s that Special Duty outrigger pads from the SafetyTech product line can now be purchased online.


Commonly used by utilities, utility contractors, and tree-care contractors, the new additions to the eCommerce site are frequently used with aerial lifts, digger derricks, tracked lifts, and mini cranes. Visit to order the special-duty pads.


DICA’s original Cavity Pad and Cavity Pad Plus Pads offer recessed and beveled edge guards to contain the stabilizer foot of utility and tree-care equipment.


Two-inch-thick Recessed Radius pads effectively support concrete pumping equipment and use a radiused recess to contain an outrigger foot.

Sliding Shoe pads lock onto the stabilizer feet of tracked lifts and mini cranes so that equipment can be easily repositioned or secured for travel without having to stow the outrigger pads.


Pole Puller outrigger pads provide a rigid base for utility pole pulling equipment and operations.


DICA still encourages customers to consult their fitting consultants to help ensure accurate outrigger pad and crane pad selection; however, availability in the eCommerce portal increases convenience for products where sizing is less involved.


Kris Koberg, CEO, reminds equipment users that the right combination of shear strength, compression strength, and rigidity are required to effectively support and distribute the imposed loads and pressures. "Our fitting process begins with an accurate understanding of this information so that we can recommend the appropriate outrigger pad to meet customer objectives," he said.


Crane Hot Line is part of the Catalyst Communications Network publication family.
