Pouring a pad for TL140

Hello gentlemen,
I'm seeking advice about what type of pad is sufficient to hold a 10,000 pond TL140. The listed PSI for this machine is low, less than a human foot print if I recall. Obviously the actual PSI will vary. Will a 4 inch pad (with rebar) be sufficient?

you making a parking spot?

i think the footprint would be different on concrete, since not the whole track face would be in contact with the surface. its different when in dirt, and the dirt gives and presses against the whole track face.

with that said, 4" should be good, as long as the base is good.

Make sure it's heated and insulated using only the highest quality extruded foam. Also, make damn sure the surface is smooth as glass and a well built over head structure and roof with sunlight windows to give the correct amount of shade and sunlight. Takeuchi's deserve nothing but the finest in accommodations when not working, any Bobcat skid steer should be parked next to fire hydrants, so dogs and hobos can use them to urinate on and defecate next to.

Use wire mesh, no need for rebar unless its freebar

Thanks for the input. Turbo - The pad isn't being poured specifically for the Tak, but I will park it there at times (it's a barn that currently has a dirt floor). Ron - I agree completely. Alldayrj - Thanks I'll look into that.

A 4 inch slab with i gauge wire should be fine, installed over a stone base.

The critical area on a slab is the edge where the machine will be coming on and off of the slab. You should thicken the slab edge to 8 inches x12 inches wide with two number 4 bars to prevent the edge from breaking.
