The A-190 model is 175 feet on steroids. It’s a modernized 175-foot model where the upper boom increased from 30 to an enormous 60 feet (!), providing unmatched up-and-over reach at heights up to 187 feet with a huge 135-foot maximum side outreach.
An additional 5-foot X-jib and a basket rotation of 400 degrees provide unique mobility, taking flexibility to even loftier heights.
This boom lift is an excellent choice to access tough-to-reach areas that require skillful maneuvering. The turning cage with a 1,322-lb load is perfect for swiveling a big work crew with all tools and materials around any object like a pole, steeple, or tower.

A-190 CASE STUDY
The Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge is a spectacular 3.1-mile, cable-stayed, twin-span bridge built in 2017 and opened to traffic in 2018. Its angled towers soar to about 280 feet and support 192 stay cables made of more than 4,900 miles of steel strands.
The challenge was that the daily commuter traffic hovered around 150,000 with peaks of 170,000 vehicles per day. One of four critical commuter bridges crossing the Connecticut river, this bridge supports the New York Thruway, a critical artery around New York City.
In compliance with Federal Highway Administration regulations, this bridge must be inspected once every two years for cable and fixture integrity and painting maintenance.
Instead of a typical scaffolding basket hanging on stay cables that cannot operate on windy days, Alpha Platforms dispatched its A-230, a 230’ telescopic boom lift. The lift operator easily maneuvered the cage between and around the cables–even with 36-50 mph gusts.
Our boom truck blocked just two lanes for 6 hours per day, avoiding rush hour, for three days. Inspectors discovered a broken cable sleeve and requested the A-230 for one more day to fix it.
Because of our unique height access solution, we saved the client over $200,000 just on bridge inspection.
