HPT 32 Trailer-Mounted Under-Bridge Access Platform:
Big Performance With a Small and Lightweight Unit
We offer the Anderson Hydra Platforms trailer-mounted model HPT 32, which is a fully equipped under-bridge access and work platform. The HPT 32 is mounted on a mobile trailer making it highly portable. for versatility.
This Anderson Hydra Platform features the patented Tower Separation System (TSS), which allows for erecting and extending the tower and the platform over pedestrian sidewalks and other barriers without restricting the under-bridge operations.
The HPT 32 trailer-mounted under-bridge platform has the capability of reaching more than 1,000 square feet of under-bridge area with one deck placement. The maximum drop depth of more than 18 feet combined with a platform extension of 32 feet means that the HPT 32 can provide access across most bridges with up to three lanes of traffic.
An 18 hp, V-twin gas engine with auto-idle provides plenty of power for the entire hydraulic system including the patented Tower Separation System (TSS). Access to the platform from the deck is always safe and secure thanks to the specially-designed crossover platform that remains horizontal at all times.
The three-axle configuration and 1500 lb (680 kg) tongue weight ensures that it is well-balanced and easy to tow with one ton trucks. Because the HPT 32 is a self-contained unit and fully functional, they can be dropped off on site, while the towing vehicle can leave the site if needed.
Because it is trailer mounted, the HPT 32 offers an economical platform for bridge inspections, maintenance, restoration and other utility work. The unit comes standard with a platform length 32 foot (9.8m) that provides a 1000 lb (54 kg) platform capacity. This means support for up to three workers plus equipment.
The dual hydraulic outriggers ensure stable platform operation and can be mounted on either side of the trailer for left- or ride-side platform deployment. The self-erecting platform can be set up in as little as five minutes and requires only a single lane closure to operate. A hydraulically powered front drive wheel controls trailer movement on the bridge deck.
The platform rotates 180˚ and can be lowered to 18 feet (5.5 m). Workers on the platform can use a voice-activated communication system to connect them to personnel at the main control of the trailer. This allows for efficient trailer movement without workers having to leave the platform.
In addition, an auxiliary hydraulic pump and motor system is available to retract the platform to transport position should an issue arise with the main hydraulics.
This easy to set up and safe HPT 32 under-bridge unit allows for safe and reliable operations for multiple tasks including:
Installation of Pipes and Cables
