While working for a concrete pumping and concrete pump equipment dealer, Bigfoot founder Bill Steiner noticed a growing number of operators and customers would complain about outrigger pad problems and pricing. Knowing the challenges facing the operators of boom type of equipment first hand, how the job site can effect the needs of a safe or unsafe equipment setup, and how important a proper outrigger pad can be to the personal safety of all on the job site, Steiner set out to manufacture better and more economical outrigger pads.
Founded in 1995 and incorporated in 1996, Bigfoot Construction Equipment Inc. has grown from building wood outrigger pads for a few local concrete pumping and crane companies to being a leading wood and plastic outrigger pad manufacturer for OEM machine dealers and end-users throughout the US and Canada. From the beginning, building better outrigger pads and pricing them affordably has been Bigfoot's mission, and that commitment continues with constant testing of new materials and manufacturing methods.
Some of Bigfoot's newest product offerings include:
• Safety Orange Outrigger Pads,
• Ground Protection Mats, and
• Bigfoot is a green manufacturer -- Bigfoot's Premium Pads are made exclusively from wood from sustainable forests.
All Ultra Pads carry a full lifetime guarantee; if you break it, Bigfoot will replace it. And the company has moved to a bigger and better location. The new address is 1111 Broadway Court, Woodstock, IL 60098.
