What’s Good and New at West Coast

As a premiere full-service authorized dealer of JLG and Skytrak equipment we always have the latest news and upgrades available to our customers.

  1. We now have 33×16 inch Turf Tires for G5-18A Telehandlers. Accoding to JLG, “These tires are designed to be turf-friendly and provide excellent traction and floatation with minimal ground disturbance. “

2.  JLG introduces a new Fork-Mounted Extendable Truss Attachment. The attachment is ideal for metal building erection, setting wooden trusses and putting up post-frame buildings in addition to more “low-rise” applications. It is designed to accommodate a maximum fork size of 2.36 x 7 x 72 inches.

3. JLG has updated it’s LRT series of rough terrain scissor lifts. These model year upgrades are designed to improve the efficiency and operability of these rough terrain scissor lifts. These upgrades will help you get the job done faster, safer, and at a lower cost.

According to JLG

Smoother operation

The upgraded series offers refined platform control joystick operation for smoother and more precise machine repositioning. In addition, control system upgrades provide the system with feedback to improve drive control proportionality. Left and right steer functions now receive renewed digital inputs to ensure a higher level of functionality and improved response for the operator.

Leveling jack performance has been improved to deliver more accuracy and quicker leveling speeds. The leveling jack interface is enhanced by integrating a dedicated leveling function within the current lift/drive switch.

The updated 530LRT model will utilize proportional lift valves for the upper and lower lift cylinders, providing a smooth, controlled proportional ascent and descent. The upgrades also include smoother lift-up and lift-down operation.

In addition to their ability to support larger loads, the LRT series scissor lifts offer excellent gradeability and maneuverability while traversing rough terrain. These types of scissors typically offer 2-3 times the capacity and 3-5 times the platform space of boom lifts.

Improved serviceability

LRT series scissor lifts have been designed with service and uptime in mind. Steel hoods protect components while providing full access for inspections and service. The complete lineup is powered by Tier 4 Final diesel engines, which do not require the serviceable emissions technology found in larger engine systems.

All machine calibrations can now be performed from the stowed position with a single click of the analyzer, and the refined elevation sensor calibration no longer requires recalibration after a software update. All software updates will also improve the customer experience with the upcoming A92.20 compliance. Additionally, all LRT models are now calibrated with the same procedure, which has been simplified to improve serviceability. This new functionality will help customers optimize machine uptime.

Additional features include a 60-degree swing-out engine tray for enhanced access and fold-down ladder and swing-out tray for easier access to engine and hydraulics. And operation and control layouts are the same in the entire line for ease of training and operation.

Improved design

The 530LRT now has the same hood and ladder design as the 330LRT and the 430LRT, and the entire series is equipped with new mufflers, lowering the sound level by 5 percent. Engine noise and vibration levels are reduced by engine isolators and improved door bumper locations. The angle tilt sensor is relocated and rerouted, so it’s less prone to damage as the scissor arms move.

 

Extend the Life of Your Diesel Engine

There are consequences to running your diesel engine beyond it’s designed limit. It’s called overspeed, and it can greatly reduce the life of your engine or it can cause catastrophic failure.

On July 25th, JLG announce the Positive Air Shut Off System to reduce potential engine damage. According to John Boehme, JLG senior product manger, “This option system reduces the risk of potential engine damage [because] it completely blocks the engine air intake system, cutting off the uncontrolled external fuel source and the air required to keep the engine running.”

This option also provided overspeed shutdown protection fro diesel engines and is the most effective way to prevent a runaway situation.

JLG-SkyTrak Machines Have Best Resale Value

The new JLG machines are equipped to lower the total cost of ownership, but did you know that JLG and SkyTrak machines have the best resale value compared to JCB, Genie, Gehl, and Manitou machines, putting more money back in your pocket?

The discovery was made during a recent study conducted by nxtMove on thousands of telehandlers over and 18 month period.

Here’s the breakdown:
• The study was conducted by marketing research firm nxtMOVE on 4,487 used Telehandler units that were sold or posted for resale in the past 18 months.

• Model years ranged from 1986 to 2016

• Although JLG-SkyTrak are discounted at a slighter higher rate (6%), their achieved prices for model years 1986 to 2016 are 22% higher than the rest of the market.

What this means is that they maintain the most value versus the rest of the market.
