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.
Before the recondition process West Coast Equipment re-powered this Gradall with a new Tier 3 Perkins engine to help meet SCAQMD off-road compliance.
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.
After the West Coast Equipment shop crew did their pre paint services, the Gradall was then ready to head out to New Image paint in Orange California . Tommy and his staff of painters prepare the Gradall for paint by taking the paint back down to the steel and get a good primer base coat on and ready for the factory JLG paint. Its Gradall blue again but nice and shiny ! Back to West Coast Equipment for the final touches before delivery, new factory decals, new seat and belt, load charts and a fresh set of treads. Custom boom decals by ZLT MXID and this Gradall is ready to work.
The newly reconditioned reach forklift by West Coast Equipment is ready for delivery to our roofing customer. For more information about this process contact the West Coast Equipment service department and ask for John. Scissor lift , boom lift and reach forklift reconditioning is one of our specialities.
West Coast Equipment provided a Gradall forklift rental to the Builders 4 Babies diaper drive hosted by Home Aid Orange County held on May 1, 2015 in Costa Mesa, Ca. Local building contractors participated in this event by creating miniature homes encased in diapers that will eventually be donated to families in need. The event was judged in several different categories of style and appearance. Sub – contractors participated by building the homes on site creating a fast paced working job site assembling walls, roofs, exterior designs and landscaping. Our West Coast Equipment Gradall 524 LoPro forklift helped by moving the materials around that were used to complete the miniature homes. Here is a bit of info captured from the Builders 4 Babies Facebook page.
