The A-175 lift’s specialty is its enormous side outreach at a working height of up to 175 feet (53 m). An all-wheel drive, extra-heavy duty chassis, light boom structure, 30-foot upper boom, and a basket rotation of 2 x 200 degrees allow a record 130-foot (40-m) side reach and provide exceptional mobility, taking flexibility and up-and-over reach to the next level.

The overside 12-foot wide workman basket featuring 1,322 lbs (600 kg) of load capacity maximizes worksite flexibility and efficiency.

These characteristics give the A-175 a unique side reach advantage over even the tallest JLG and Genie lifts’ modest capabilities.

Water Park Construction
How to Accelerate the Most Expensive Mall Construction Project and Reduce Overall Cost

American Dream Meadowlands is the US's second-largest entertainment and commercial center, taking a whopping 13 years and $6 billion to build. It is home to DreamWorks Water Park, the largest indoor water park in the United States. Inside the water park, the largest covered indoor wave pool with artificial waves lapping over 1.5 acres was under construction.

The general contractor needed to attach pool area decorations, lighting, and paint under the 140’ roof.

The construction was behind schedule and severely over budget, facing a fast-approaching start date for pool excavation with millions of dollars at stake. The JLG and Genie lifts could not reach the necessary heights and fit in tight spots.

The client engaged Alpha Platforms with its A-175, a 175’ telescopic boom lift with a side reach of 120’. Its 31’ maneuverable jib boom swiveled the generous 12’ basket to easily access all high and tight spots.

Alpha staffed two shifts of operators to work for one week, ensuring uninterrupted work in 117-degree heat, saving the client $500,000-$600,000 on scaffolding alone.
