Princeton Piggyback PB45 STM


Princeton PB 45STM

Perhaps the biggest news with the new PB45 STM is the all new, technologically advanced, Tier 4 Final compliant engine.

The all-new Princeton PB45 STM Forklift is our static mast machine that offers 4500 lbs of lifting capacity in a compact, yet powerful package. Available in standard or low-profile design, this versatile machine can deliver across all types of terrain and even into low overhead clearance areas. The PB45 STM also has excellent stability. While weighing in at only about 4,500lbs, the all wheel drive and low center of gravity makes a machine that feels sure footed and rugged. The pantograph extension arm also allow partial one-side unloading. Even more impressive, the machine was designed to have a shorter overall length. The PB45 can be configured to a 53” overhang which allows for mounting to even 48 foot-long trailers.

Solid Tires are Here!

Customers have been requesting the new solid tires for their JLG and Skytrak machines

The TeleMaster ™ Tires from JLG and Continental help to extend the service life of the tires is up to 4 times longer, for some, this could mean an additional 6,000 hours of tire usage before replacement.

According to JLG

These solid tires are made of highly specialized rubber compounds that work together to provide outstanding durability and lower total cost of ownership. They feature superior heat rejection and low heat buildup, minimizing tire wear.

Their unique, non-directional tread pattern gives operators a comfortable driving experience, especially on hard surfaces. Plus, the tread blocks have more gripping edges to enhance traction and promote self-cleaning on mud and gravel sites.

Carb Compliance: Our current in-house project moves equipment owners into the future. Retrofitting older telehandlers/ reach forklifts with new Tier 3 & 4 emissions-compliant engines is the standard for Southern California. Many new job sites mandate that all diesel powered off-road construction equipment meet AQMD requirements. West Coast Equipment is the leader in this movement for re-powering telehandlers/ reach forklifts.

If you fail to register and comply with all State requirements, you are subject to fines of up to $10,000/day per machine. Your equipment must have a visible E.I.N. on both sides of the equipment.

Important: New Regulations that Impact YOU and Your Business

While the global outlook for heavy construction is expected to reach $180.66 billion by 2021 , a growth rate of 7%, here at home there are key regulatory changes that you must be aware of to capitalize on any of this industry expansion.


First, are the new CARB regulations for small fleets. By March 2018 all fleets, including small fleets are required to complete their annual reporting requirement and submit a Responsible Official Affirmation of Reporting (ROAR) form. We can help with these forms, but you must sign them. Click here to learn more


Second, are the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the Canadian Standards Associations (CSA) updated guidelines regarding aerial work platforms across North America. The Canadian standards were published in May and the U.S. standards will be out soon.


According to JLG, the changes that will affect the owners and operators of these machines will be:

• The need to make changes in the areas of training

• Changes to job site safety such as performing site risk assessments for all MEWP operations, including training

• Machine selection to accommodate the new standards


The good news is that your old machines won’t need to be retrofitted to meet the new standards.


Under the new CSA and ANSI standards, aerial work platforms will now be called mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs), and MEWPs will also be classified differently.


At West Coast Equipment we are on top of these change, and will guide you as to the best way you can stay compliant as these new standards become implemented.
