Crane using pads

Why not use wooden products?

Cribbing with plastic products has quite a few advantages over cribbing with wooden products:

  • No knots, cracks, splits and splinters
  • Safe and durable solution
  • Lightweight and easy to handle
  • Unmatched strength
  • Doesn't absorb water
The only guarantee with wood is that it will eventually break.

 

cribbing

What do I need to know?

Please spread weight onto points of contact () to obtain a maximum load capacity*. Height of the stability tower is limited to ≤ 3 x width of the base!

When you are cribbing, do not mix different blocks. To obtain safe structures, the blocks need to be identical (same dimension, compression and friction). Only crib on a solid surface.

We always recommend using the flat side of the stabilisation block. Only use the pyramid side when it's not possible to stack with the flat side.

We also advice to combine stabilisation blocks and jacks for a double protection. These products aren't a substitute for outrigger pads!

* The load capacity depends on the underground, the weight, the type of vehicle and the contact surface on the plate. It also depends on climatological conditions. In any case, LODAX cannot be taken responsible for any damage
