Jace Ewing, a shop service technician at Hugg & Hall- Fort Smith, recently completed a total refurbish of a Taylor Machine Works TXH350.
“I’ve been with the company for about two-and-a-half years,” said Ewing. “I’ve started refurbishing forklifts and I’ve been working on this one since November. When it came in, it was in really rough shape. The customer decided it would be better to refurbish this than to buy one with Tier 4. I think that’s a smart move.”
Ewing spent 497 hours refurbishing the machine, from start-to-finish, beginning on November 28, 2018 and completing on March 15.
The project consisted of the complete overhaul of the cab, mast, steer axle, drive axle, brakes and more. The refurbishment included the installation of a new engine, transmission, drive shaft, hydraulic hoses, electrical harnesses, cylinders, lights HVAC components, decals, driver seat, tires, backup cameras and batteries.
Hugg & Hall would like to thank Ewing for his hard work on this project and others.
