History of Westcoaster & Otis

               A Brief History of Westcoaster and OTIS S-71

                                                      Otis S-71 researched and written by Jim Kaness

The Otis S-71 golf cart was produced between 1970 and 1976 by Westcoaster, a subsidiary of Otis Elevator Company, and may be branded either “Otis” or “Westcoaster”. The cream with red trim four wheeler below is an Otis. In 1970 Otis Elevator Company acquired West Coast Machinery Company of Stockton, CA (renamed Westcoaster Company) who manufactured a full line of electric and gasoline powered vehicles for use off the public roads- on airports, factories, farms, ranches and golf courses. In 1976 Otis sold the Westcoaster / Otis product line to EVA-Chloride, who was then engaged in development of electric vehicles for highway use. In 2005 many of these S-71 golf carts are still in use. Here is a link to a free copy of an Otis service manual that Jim has created through his own research: <a href="http://www.jimkaness.com/engineering/s71.pdf">http://www.jimkaness.com/engineering/s</a></strong></p><p style="font-weight: normal;"><br/><strong></strong></p><p style="font-weight: normal;"><br/><strong></strong></p><h1 style="font-weight: normal;"><strong></strong><font color="#330099">
