Used in combination, you’re increasing your safety features, reducing operator error, and extending the life of your machine with tires that get up to 4x’s more hours. We’ve seen up to 8,000 hours with these new tires.
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.
• Sample of Equipment Identification Number (E.I.N.)
• West Coast Equipment is your one stop CARB compliance center
• Initial reporting, E.I.N. decals
• Fleet analysis
• On highway truck
• Gas LP forklifts
• Portable equipment
• Yearly updates and reporting
• TIER 3 & 4 re-power
• Complete overhaul / rebuild
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.
If you have any questions, please call us. Our customer service reps are standing by.
There are some new important CARB deadlines that you need to be aware of, including an important one for small fleets.
January 2018 Deadline
1. Large fleets (over 5,000hp) and medium fleets (2,501-5,000 hp) must meet the emission performance requirements.
2. Large and medium fleets can no longer add any tier 2 engine vehicles to their fleets.
3. Small fleets (under 2,500 hp) no longer receive double credit for installing a highest level PM Verified Diesel Emission Control Strategy (VDECS) to reduce NOx.
March 2018 Deadline
1. All fleets, including small fleets, are required to complete their annual reporting requirements and submit a Responsible Official Affirmation of Reporting (ROAR) form. Click here for details

We started West Coast Equipment in 1984. Three years later was the crash of 1987 or as some refer to it as “Black Monday”. (Reuters)
Then there were the crashes of 1997, 2001, and the infamous housing crash of 2008. There’s been other up’s and down’s as well, but not only has West Coast Equipment survived, we’ve thrived.
What’s our secret? 4 Things Every Contractor Must Know
1. Learn from other companies outside of your industry. As independent business owners, we watch both the short-term and long-term market trends. We study why companies like Toy’s R Us, go out of business, and learn from their mistakes (hint: lack of innovation and listening to customer needs). We also watch what others are doing well and reverse engineer their successes.
2. Innovate by listening to your customer’s needs. One of the most important aspects to keeping your business running through uncertain times, is listening to and responding to your customer’s needs in innovative ways. For example, we know our customers wanted to be able to track their rental equipment, billing cycles, and other account data, so we installed a customer portal that they can access through the website.
3. In depth product knowledge. You should always know more about your products and services then your customers do. Education and decades of experience make the team at West Coast Equipment one of the industry’s go-to authorities. Last month, Dave Rubidoux was interviewed for Lift and Access magazine for his insight on the increase use of 12,000lb telehandler.
4. First-in-class customer service. We know that our customers have a lot of choices when it comes renting and purchasing telehandlers, forklifts, etc… Which is why for over thirty years we’ve been providing quality customer service.
When you call West Coast Equipment for a rental, you speak to an employee at West Coast not someone at a call center.
If you need service, we can be at the job site within hours to service your vehicle. We constantly invest in new equipment and training because it’s what our customers want and need to keep their business in the black.
Call West Coast Equipment first for parts, service, rentals, and sales. Here’s to another 30 years!
In this month’s July/August issue of Lift and Access magazine, Dave Robidoux was asked about the growing trend toward the increase use of the 12,000 lb. class of telehandlers over vertical-masted rough-terrain forklifts and small cranes..
“Typically, a 10,000-lb. capacity telehandler and a 12,000-lb. model have about the same footprint, and both weigh in the low 30,000-lb. range, with the 12k rig weighing about 2,4000 lbs. more,” he says. “So the 12,0000-lb. capacity telehander gives you an extra ton of close-in lifting capacity plus extra lifting height from virtually the same chassis.” (Lift and Access, July/August 2017).
