West Coast Equipment has seen quiet a bit of new equipment come through our yard latley. We are seeing a small up-tick in new equipment purchases from the public works and even some from the private sector of business. This is a good thing to see, businesses spending on new equipment for their companies. It has been quite a dry spell on the new equipment sales but the last few months have been promising. Our most current sale was this very colorful JLG E450 knuckle boom. We have also sold a few JLG G-10-55A & JLG G-12-55A Telehandlers. For a quote on any type of new JLG equipment please feel free to contact our sales department at 951-256-2040.
Here is the final look at this machine after our shop has completed a full restoration. After recieving a new Tier 3 Iveco engine, new wiring harness and the necessary hydraulic hoses it was off to the paint shop for a fresh coat of City of Burbank white. When we recieved it back from paint it got its finishing touches in the form of a new seat and belt, decals, lights switches and documents.

The city of Burbank has hired West Coast Equipment LLC to fully recondition their 1982 542 LOED 15,000 lb reach forklift. “We took on this project knowing it was going to be a big job but this is the machine they must have in their yard because of its size and its lifting capacity” said John Robidoux service manager of West Coast Equipment. ” They wanted us to really go through the whole machine, so we installed a new 88 h.p. TIER 3 Iveco engine and hydraulic pump along with the new radiator and cooling fan system. We also installed a new wiring harness with new gauges on the dash to monitor the new engines vitals. We have rebuilt the hydraulic lift cylinders and have run all new hoses to the boom and steer axle. The brakes need to be freshened up so the rotor was turned and new pads were installed. The next stop is the paint shop to complete the full effect of this recon. The machine will be painted City of Burbank white and will recieve all the city logos.” Check back for the final assembly of this recondition project after it comes back from the paint department.

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.
