Reach Forklift recondition

One of West Coast Equipment’s recent sales was to do a recondition reach forklift project and get it back to proper working condition and appearance. Our client was ready to make their first purchase of a Gradall reach forklift for their roofing business.  They chose to go with a pre-owned Gradall 544D model that West Coast Equipment had in stock and available for sale.  With its 55 foot of reach and 10,000 pound capacity the Gradall 544D was the perfect choice for their application. This Gradall had recently been re-powered by West Coast Equipment with a Tier 3 Perkins engine along with most of the hydraulic system hoses being replaced, it was a perfect machine for the project. It was then decided that a fresh paint job with new decals and company logo were in order for the appearance our customer wanted to present out on the job site. Along with the paint job West Coast Installed new 1400 x 24 Solideal E3 Rock Lug tires for proven long life use on the job. Equipped with a 100 degree swing carriage and work light kit this Gradall turned out great and looks as good as it did when it was new.

Ready to work , this recently reconditioned Gradall 544D reach forklift looks great.

Before the recondition process West Coast Equipment re-powered this Gradall with a new Tier 3 Perkins engine to help meet SCAQMD off-road compliance.

The beginning of the recondition process started out with a 1999 Gradall 544 D.  This machine was a trade in and a perfect candidate to restore it back to good as new, work ready condition.

To get this machine ready to go back to work it first it made a trip through the West Coast Equipment shop for a 115 point inspection to check all mechanical functions and safety related issues.  Service manager John Robidoux and his team in the service department provided their expertise in making sure this machine was ready to go.

Its Gradall blue again but nice and shiny !  Back to West Coast Equipment for the final touches before delivery, new factory decals, new seat and belt, load charts and a fresh set of treads.  Custom boom decals by ZLT MXID and this Gradall is ready to work.

WCE at the Lucas Oil Off Road races

Saturday May 30 and Sunday May 31 2015 West Coast Equipment had their first customer appreciation day at the Lucas Oil Off Road races at Lake Elsinore Motorsports Complex.  Over 60 of our customers and family members attended the two day event to watch some of the best off road racers battle it out on the purpose build short course track.  Our track side VIP RV spot gave us one of the best seats in the house and provided a nice hospitality setting for lunch, cool drinks and much needed shade as the temperatures reached into the upper 90 degrees.   The heat did not stop the West Coast Equipment visitors from walking the open pit for autographs and pictures with the drivers like Jeremy McGrath, Brian Deegan, Twitch Stenberg, and many other very approachable racers that always take time to meet their fans.These 850 h.p. off road trucks are a must see in person ! Flying and sliding their way around the 1.5 mile short course track, the battles between the drivers for top position often results in missing body panels or a truck or two upside down.  These drivers do not hold back from touching wheels or being scared to ” throw it side ways ” at full speed.  If you have never been, think about joining us at the next event in July, a night race a Glen Helen in Devore, Ca.  West Coast Equipment Would like to thank all of our customers new and old that attended our customer appreciation day at the races.  We hope to see you again soon and hopefully it will not be as hot !

Thanks to Lucas Oil and Robert Myles for allowing West Coast Equipment to provide a Skytrak reach forklift, a JLG boom lift and a JLG reach forklift before and during the event weekend. Our equipment helped the Lucas Oil off road production team with setting up their equipment track side.

Gradall 524 LoPro forklift helps with the Builders 4 Babies diaper drive 2015

West Coast Equipment provided a Gradall forklift rental to the Builders 4 Babies diaper drive hosted by Home Aid Orange County held on May 1, 2015 in Costa Mesa, Ca.  Local building contractors participated in this event by creating miniature homes encased in diapers that will eventually be donated to families in need. The event was judged in several different categories of style and appearance.  Sub – contractors participated by building the homes on site creating a fast paced working job site assembling walls, roofs, exterior designs and landscaping.  Our West Coast Equipment Gradall 524 LoPro forklift helped by moving the materials around that were used to complete the miniature homes.  Here is a bit of info captured from the Builders 4 Babies Facebook page.

JLG G model outrigger warranty repair

Raised Outrigger Binding Issue
Models Affected: JLG Models G10-43A; G10-55A; and G12-55A Telehandlers
Tech Tip
Based on feedback from the field, outriggers used on the machines listed above may bind, in some instances, in the raised position, preventing the outrigger from being lowered into position when required. To resolve this issue, JLG has developed a field service kit (P/N 1001180818) which provides stop blocks that will limit the distance the outrigger arms can be raised. These stop blocks are installed by welding, and the kit contains installation instructions as well as parts to update one machine.

Warranty: JLG recommends the installation of the stop block kit (P/N 1001180818) at your next service maintenance interval. JLG will reimburse your account the cost of the part and two (2) hours for labor for each unit completed and up to three (3) hours for travel time.

This part can only be ordered by a local servicing entity of JLG products. This servicing entity must have a JLG account and be capable of purchasing parts and filing warranty claims. When ordering a kit, the servicing entity will be charged (debited) for the cost of each kit. Reference SL 15-09 on your warranty claim. The warranty coverage for this bulletin will expire 12 months after the date on this letter.
