FLIP PAD LAUNCHES SUPERGRIP™ REPLACEMENT STABILIZER PADS FOR BACKHOES

BOSTON, MA – April 2, 2006 – FlipPad International, creator of laminated rubber replacement pads for backhoes and the DoubleDuty™ reversible stabilizer unit for backhoes, has announced the release to market of SuperGrip™ Pads, a newly patented laminated rubber replacement outrigger pad. FlipPad International improved the “grip” on its laminated rubber replacement pads for better performance for backhoes on pavement.

The patented new pad, the SuperGrip™ Pad was designed to wear longer and provide twenty percent more wearing surface on the outrigger for better stability.

“By slightly modifying the shape of the laminated rubber coils and the size of the surface of the backhoe pad we were able to greatly increase the grip on our backhoe replacement pads,” said Eric Lagsdin, Co-Founder of FlipPad International.

“And, like our original backhoe replacement pads, the SuperGrip outrigger pads will wear longer and never chunk like molded replacement backhoe pads do,” he adds.

FlipPad International’s patented replacement pads are made in the U.S.A. with 100% recycled materials. FlipPad International develops and markets the DoubleDuty™ stabilizer street unit for all makes including, Case, Caterpillar, New Holland, JCB, Volov and Terex backhoes and its affiliated laminated rubber replacement pad products.

Supported by more than 35 years of research and development, FlipPad International’s stabilizer products are customized to fit virtually every major manufactured backhoe.

FlipPad International is located in Hanover, Massachusetts.
