Enabling Jib Side Swing for Electric Booms
Tech Tip
When a new power or ground module is installed in a JLG electric boom, Machine Set Up must be accessed to turn on certain features. One common question that comes into the call center is, "How do I turn on the jib side swing?” To turn on the jib side swing with an analyzer, take the following steps:
  • Enter the code “33271” from the “Access Level 2” menu.
  • Press Enter for the “Access Level 1” menu.
  • Press the “Right Arrow” key to access the “Machine Set Up” menu.
  • Press Enter on “Machine Set Up.”
  • Press the “Right Arrow” key until you find “jib.” Press Enter.
  • Press the “UP” arrow key to change the selection to display “2=side swing.”
  • Shut the machine down so it accepts the change.
Please contact your Regional Service Manager or a JLG service representative if further information is required.

Featured Part
SkyGuard™ Control Panel Protection
Ground Support Aftermarket Parts
SkyGuard™ provides the operator and control panel with enhanced protection that does not limit platform workspace or visibility. When the sensor is activated by approximately 50 lb of force or more, SkyGuard stops all functions in use at the time, and its unique reverse functionality—the first feature of its kind in the market—temporarily reverses most functions for a short period of time. SkyGuard is available exclusively from JLG.
