Our A-230 platforms are German-made and mounted on a rugged, custom-built all-wheel drive, 5-axle Kenworth chassis. This versatile model is tuned up for rough terrain field jobs as well as tight city streets and turns.

It’s little wonder why the A-230 is our most frequently used model. With an impressive 230-foot working height, 30-foot upper boom, 12-foot cage, and outreach up to 115 feet, Alpha Platforms’ A-230 is designed to ensure superior flexibility and reach for any high-altitude job.

This extremely maneuverable boom lift may be driven to any worksite, stabilized, and fully ready to work within 15 minutes. The A-230 is our third-tallest and most popular model for working around high-rise buildings and industrial towers.

National Landmark Cathedral Restoration
How to Inspect and Secure Dislodged Roof Pillars at the 230+ Foot National Cathedral without Touching the Building

The majestic, gothic Washington National Cathedral is the sixth-largest cathedral in the world and the second-largest in the United States. As a result of the 2011 earthquake, the cathedral sustained $34M in damage, especially to its high structures. Civil engineering architects determined that the bottoms of the decorative pillars at the top of the building were dislocated, and one of the main pillars was very unsafe.

According to quotes from potential contractors, it would be very expensive to set pipe scaffolding ($100k plus) around the roof pillars.

To preserve the delicate historic building while reducing project cost, the client hired Alpha Platforms’ A-230, our unique contactless reach 230-foot boom lift.

Read how the Alpha team exceeded client expectations by finishing the entire project on the second day before lunch instead of the anticipated 3-5 days and saved tens of thousands of dollars.
