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.

Ready to work , this recently reconditioned Gradall 544D reach forklift looks great.

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.

inshop service 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.

New Image did a great job on the paint.

WCE at the Lucas Oil Off Road races

Saturday May 30 and Sunday May 31 2015 West Coast Equipment had their first customer appreciation day at the Lucas Oil Off Road races at Lake Elsinore Motorsports Complex.  Over 60 of our customers and family members attended the two day event to watch some of the best off road racers battle it out on the purpose build short course track.  Our track side VIP RV spot gave us one of the best seats in the house and provided a nice hospitality setting for lunch, cool drinks and much needed shade as the temperatures reached into the upper 90 degrees.   The heat did not stop the West Coast Equipment visitors from walking the open pit for autographs and pictures with the drivers like Jeremy McGrath, Brian Deegan, Twitch Stenberg, and many other very approachable racers that always take time to meet their fans.These 850 h.p. off road trucks are a must see in person ! Flying and sliding their way around the 1.5 mile short course track, the battles between the drivers for top position often results in missing body panels or a truck or two upside down.  These drivers do not hold back from touching wheels or being scared to ” throw it side ways ” at full speed.  If you have never been, think about joining us at the next event in July, a night race a Glen Helen in Devore, Ca.  West Coast Equipment Would like to thank all of our customers new and old that attended our customer appreciation day at the races.  We hope to see you again soon and hopefully it will not be as hot !

Thanks to Lucas Oil and Robert Myles for allowing West Coast Equipment to provide a Skytrak reach forklift, a JLG boom lift and a JLG reach forklift before and during the event weekend. Our equipment helped the Lucas Oil off road production team with setting up their equipment track side.

West Coast Equipment is a independently owned equipment rental company in Corona California.  A JLG factory authorized distributor for JLG, Skytrak and Gradall reach forklift and JLG boom and scissor lifts.  Our one location delivers rental equipment across Southern California and provides new and used equipment sales and service.

Gradall 524 LoPro forklift helps with the Builders 4 Babies diaper drive 2015

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.

1982 542-25 LOED recon for the City of Burbank.

 

 

 

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.

 

Project- Recon, The Giraffe

 

Is your machine tired, and run down or in need of repair?  Let us recondition it back to working condition.  Make an old machine look new again by repainting and installing new operators cab features like a suspension seat and seat belt, load charts and toggle switches and decals on the boom with your company name. Is your machine ready for a more complete overhaul?  Let us rebuild the steer axle and knuckles or service the front drive axle and leaking hubs. Cracked, worn, chaffed hydraulic hoses are a problem when they blow out or spring a leak on your contractors new concrete or asphalt.Lets go through the hydraulic system and install new hoses.  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.
