TMC Lifting Supplies, the outrigger mat and lifting gear division of UK’s Crowland Cranes, has launched the Mod Lite aluminium outrigger support mats. The move comes on the heels of the launch of TMC’s Power-Pad HD Lite mats in July – see: New Power-Pads from TMC.
Manufactured from the same high grade aluminium as the HD Lite pads, each Mod Lite mat weighs 35kg and is 1.25 metres long by 400mm wide. They have a depth of 100mm with a 30mm base layer of Etha foam ground protection to provide a load rating of 75 tonnes.
Three Power-Pad Mod Lite units provide a 1.5 square metre contact area while four mats provide two square metres. They can also be stacked, providing greater rigidity on softer, uneven ground conditions.
