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.

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.

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.
