JLG launches a new website called Direct Access specifically to help owners and operators of access equipment with insight about future technologies, the industry, regulations, and how to get the most out of their equipment. The new site features an interview with Dave Robidoux and myself. Watch it here.
Now you can off-load in tight quarters with the Princeton PiggyBack forklifts. We’ve done our research, and decided that Princeton was best-in-class when it comes to truck mounted forklift products, and it’s a great complement to our line JLG and Skytrak products.
We are carrying the entire line, and since we are one of the only full-service dealers in Southern California, we’re also providing parts and service. Click the picture for more information or call Customer Service at 951-256-2040.
Our in house service department is the heart of West Coast Equipment, LLC.
From full boom replacements, steer axle assemblies and more, our indoor repair facility can handle any job brought in.

Carb Compliance: Our current in-house project moves equipment owners into the future. Retrofitting older telehandlers/ reach forklifts with new Tier 3 & 4 emissions-compliant engines is the standard for Southern California. Many new job sites mandate that all diesel powered off-road construction equipment meet AQMD requirements. West Coast Equipment is the leader in this movement for re-powering telehandlers/ reach forklifts.
If you fail to register and comply with all State requirements, you are subject to fines of up to $10,000/day per machine. Your equipment must have a visible E.I.N. on both sides of the equipment.
• Sample of Equipment Identification Number (E.I.N.)
• West Coast Equipment is your one stop CARB compliance center
• Initial reporting, E.I.N. decals
• Fleet analysis
• On highway truck
• Gas LP forklifts
• Portable equipment
• Yearly updates and reporting
• TIER 3 & 4 re-power
• Complete overhaul / rebuild
While the global outlook for heavy construction is expected to reach $180.66 billion by 2021 , a growth rate of 7%, here at home there are key regulatory changes that you must be aware of to capitalize on any of this industry expansion.
First, are the new CARB regulations for small fleets. By March 2018 all fleets, including small fleets are required to complete their annual reporting requirement and submit a Responsible Official Affirmation of Reporting (ROAR) form. We can help with these forms, but you must sign them. Click here to learn more
Second, are the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the Canadian Standards Associations (CSA) updated guidelines regarding aerial work platforms across North America. The Canadian standards were published in May and the U.S. standards will be out soon.
According to JLG, the changes that will affect the owners and operators of these machines will be:
• The need to make changes in the areas of training
• Changes to job site safety such as performing site risk assessments for all MEWP operations, including training
• Machine selection to accommodate the new standards
The good news is that your old machines won’t need to be retrofitted to meet the new standards.
Under the new CSA and ANSI standards, aerial work platforms will now be called mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs), and MEWPs will also be classified differently.
At West Coast Equipment we are on top of these change, and will guide you as to the best way you can stay compliant as these new standards become implemented.
If you have any questions, please call us. Our customer service reps are standing by.
There are some new important CARB deadlines that you need to be aware of, including an important one for small fleets.
January 2018 Deadline
1. Large fleets (over 5,000hp) and medium fleets (2,501-5,000 hp) must meet the emission performance requirements.
2. Large and medium fleets can no longer add any tier 2 engine vehicles to their fleets.
3. Small fleets (under 2,500 hp) no longer receive double credit for installing a highest level PM Verified Diesel Emission Control Strategy (VDECS) to reduce NOx.
March 2018 Deadline
1. All fleets, including small fleets, are required to complete their annual reporting requirements and submit a Responsible Official Affirmation of Reporting (ROAR) form. Click here for details
