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.

The Giraffe recondition completed

 

Here is the Giraffe after completing the recondition process.  After some time spent in the shop recieving a new engine, and replacing some needed worn parts we shipped the machine to get a new look.  The new paint job and decals seat and belt along with a few items in the drivers cab area this machine looks great and is ready to go back to work after a long break.  We thought it turned out so well we added it to our rental fleet.  Take a look at how it turned out in the pictures below. If you would like more information about our re-condition process feel free to contact our service manager John Robidoux for a detailed estimate on getting your older reach forklifts looking and running like new.

 

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.
