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.
