Aspen A-30

Bridge Inspection Unit

Versatile, efficient and lightweight, the Aspen A-30 can help you with your bridge inspection and maintenance needs. Other equipment may offer a few of these benefits, but the A-30 has features that can't be beat.

Interchangeable Platforms

For maximum flexibility, the Aspen A-30 can be fitted with either of two fully-interchangeable platforms.

  • A three person, 3'x5' aluminum platform comes standard. This 600 lb. capacity inspection platform comes equipped with an easy entry gate and is attached to the end of the articulating fourth boom, providing a full range of movement and articulation. In the fully articulated position, inspectors can reach an additional 5' vertically, enabling "hands on" access. A fiberglass platform is also available.
  • Another option is a large 3.5' x 30' interchangeable maintenance platform attaches to the end of the second boom. It has a 1,000 lb. capacity and provides a large working space for all types of repair work.

Stabilizing Systems

The Aspen A-30 is fitted with stabilizing systems which allow operators the advantage of being able to move the truck while the platform is deployed. As with all Aspen Aerial units, OUTRIGGERS ARE NOT REQUIRED.

  • A full-length subframe provides strength and stability.
  • Axle locks unitize the chassis and truck axles.
  • A counterweight at the base of the pedestal rotates with the unit, always staying within the width of the chassis.
  • An interlock system tied to the controls maintains operation within the unit's full range of stability.
  • An indicator panel at the pedestal enables operators to constantly monitor boom and turret movements.

Reach, Range and Maneuverability

Four articulating booms and two points of rotation give the Aspen A-30 an incomparable ability to operate in, around, through and over all types of obstructions. Even in close quarters, the Aspen A-30 can be deployed, reaching across sidewalks and over fences to gain access to underbridge areas. With the three-person platform installed, operators can reach up and behind deep girders for thorough inspections. Because the vehicle can be moved while the platform is under the bridge, the Aspen A-30 provides even greater range and operating efficiency.

Rail and Highway Bridges / Versatility and Efficiency

The Aspen A-30 can be used on either rail or highway bridges. The unit can be deployed off of both sides of the truck so operators can reach more area without having to reposition the vehicle. For railway bridge inspection and maintenance, the Aspen A-30 offers significant advantages. Its underbridge reach extends the width of double-track bridges and since it is mounted on a short wheelbase chassis, it can be set up quickly on tracks at most road crossings.
