Aspen B-32

Lightweight Bridge Inspection Unit

The Aspen B-32 can be used to gain access on Bridges with weight restrictions. Available under 26,000 total GVW *, the B-32 is designed to operate on bridges where heavier trucks cannot be used and without sacrificing the features needed to access critical areas of the bridge. When ordered in this configuration, a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) is not required. Standard Features include two turntables, three booms and a hydraulic platform extension. The B-32’s unique design allows personnel to operate above ground level as well, even when not operating on a bridge, providing additional versatility.

Higher Slope and Grade Access

All units are tested and comply in accordance with ANSI A92.8 standards. The B-32 is also available in a configuration that allows operation on slopes and grades that exceed ANSI’s minimum requirements. *

B-32 Cab Controls

Cab Controls

Set-up operation and system monitoring can be done from the cab of the truck. A Graphical Terminal Interface, including a color display depicting unit operation and individual function performance while monitoring the unit’s parameters, hydraulics and enabling simple troubleshooting is in full view of the truck operator.

Controls, with wireless capabilities, are used remotely and in the operator platform. A communication system is also provided with speakers in the cab, at the turntable, and at the platform. The platform station operates in the “hands-free” mode.

Adjustable Turntable

B32 Overhead Reach

Two rotating turntables plus multiple articulating booms allow the platform to deploy off either side of the truck to access your structures. Turntable number two comes equipped with a hydraulic leveling system, providing smooth platform movement. In addition, the operator can make manual adjustments of +/- 9 degrees to compensate for the super-elevation of the bridge.

Overhead Reach

The Aspen B-32 has been designed to work overhead, even when not operating on a bridge. With Boom #1 in its upward position, the other booms can clear the group and full overhead reach can be obtained. This additional flexibility makes the B-32 a versatile tool in your fleet.

Platform Extension

B32 Overhead Reach

The two-man, 450 lb. capacity platform is provided and equipped with a hydraulic vertical extension. Move easily up into tight areas for a close up inspection.

Stabilizing Systems

The Aspen B-32 is fitted with stabilizing systems which allow operators the advantage of being able to move the truck while the platform is deployed. OUTRIGGERS ARE NOT REQUIRED.

  • An integral subframe providing strength and stability.
  • A front torsion bar maximizes the front axle weight distribution.
  • Rear axle locks unitize the chassis and truck axles.
  • Counterweights that never extend past the edge of the truck during operation.
  • A hydraulically sliding counterweight is available installed under the truck so that the weight can be positioned in the most optimum counterbalanced position.
  • An interlock system tied to the controls maintains operation within the unit's full range of stability.

*final weights will vary and under 26,000gvw may not be available, depending on factors such as chassis selection and slope/grade requirement.
