Project- Recon, The Giraffe

 

Is your machine tired, and run down or in need of repair?  Let us recondition it back to working condition.  Make an old machine look new again by repainting and installing new operators cab features like a suspension seat and seat belt, load charts and toggle switches and decals on the boom with your company name. Is your machine ready for a more complete overhaul?  Let us rebuild the steer axle and knuckles or service the front drive axle and leaking hubs. Cracked, worn, chaffed hydraulic hoses are a problem when they blow out or spring a leak on your contractors new concrete or asphalt.Lets go through the hydraulic system and install new hoses.  This will not only eliminate a leak or blow out, but also down time on the job.  A clean well-maintained machine not only makes a good impression, it runs good, has no leaks and does not break down!

 

The Giraffe re-condition project started out as a good machine sitting for a few years. It is a 1999 GRADALL 544 D model that was in overall good condition.  The contractor that owned the machine bought it custom painted from JLG  at contractor equipment expo years ago. The engine had some hours on it but the rest of the running gear was in pretty good shape.  We brought the Gradall into the shop to check out the rear axle and boom sections to replace the  normal wear and tear items.  At that time we decided an engine was needed and we had a good low hour engine that fit the bill. Drive motor hoses, tires, 1000 hour preventative maintence and it was off to paint.
