SAFELY SETTING CONCRETE BOOM PUMP OUTRIGGERS

- Sep 20, 2018 -

Here are some rules to follow when setting outriggers:


      Do not set the outrigger on uneven soil. If necessary, reposition the unit or level the soil.    


      Do not bridge a hole with outrigger cribbing. If there is no soil contact over the hole, the pressure on the ends of the pad is much greater. The soil could give way or the cribbing could break.


    When jacking, put the full weight of the truck on each outrigger, one at a time, and if the pad starts to sink, retract the foot and supply more cribbing. Continue this process until the outrigger appears stable and the pad shows no sign of sinking. Only then are you ready to unfold the boom.


   If you are unable to get the outriggers to stabilize, do not unfold the boom. Relocate the pump to a location that will support the weight of the outriggers.
