MAX supported a 156,000 lb. Grove GMK6350 all terrain crane while lifting heavy machinery to a new location. MAX was used in place of the standard wooden block supports underneath the steel outrigger pads to provide a rigid lifting base.

PORTAFLOOR MAX was recently tested on-site at a major mining pit as a relocatable haul truck maintenance pad. The goal was to eliminate pouring and iminent removal of a temporary concrete slab. Three successful tests were completed; the back axels of the truck were lifted using a B&D Super Jack, 2 of the tires were lifted within an 18" diameter pneumatic jack and the Komatsu 930e was marked on MAX.
MAX created a roadhead in south Texas to support tractor trailers filled with caliche material. Over 150 trucks rolled over MAX and made a tight turn into the drill site. MAX reduced the rutting from the constant traffic and required only minimal sub-base leveling, watering and rolling prior to installation.
After a year of testing, the 416th Theater Engineer Command (USAR) has recognized the MAX as a deployable maintenance pad for their portable maintenance structures. Each area will be roughly 800 square feet and use aluminum plates to reinforce the point load weight of the jack stands. .
