Operators can experience enhanced control panel protection with SkyGuard technology, standard on all JLG® boom lifts. Developed after extensive research and testing, the SkyGuard sensor, when activated, stops all functions in use at the time. 

The reverse functionality is the only feature of its kind in the market. After stopping the machine, it temporarily reverses, or “undoes,” most functions that were in use at the time of activation for less than a second’s worth of time. The control system automatically accesses the functions in use by the operator at the time of activation and – for a small period of time – is able to reverse that sequence, with the exception of certain functions. 

  • Can be activated from a variety of angles and provides additional protection without impeding or reducing the work envelope of the boom lift
  • With no movable parts, there’s no need for scheduled or additional maintenance
  • Break away feature for extreme conditions on bar-style system
  • Resets by cycling foot switch, e-stop, or replacing magnet on SkyLine
  • Does not increase the platform profile or limit the use of the platform

Providing SkyGuard technology standard is just another way that we’re demonstrating our commitment to innovation that enhances both productivity and control panel protection.
