Here is a great picture of our Crane Pads in action. You can see the Gwil Crane set up on Transition Mats under the front tires (to level the machine) and then 6′ x 12′ Crane Pads under the outriggers for ground support. These pads are made with 12″ x 12″ and have metal plates sandwiched between the timbers for maximum strength. Lifting hooks are included in the 4 corners. This boring machine has been used to tunnel through mountains for a rapid transit system.
