It should be called the JLG 50 or 60 foot lift depending on the disposition of the safety features. Good luck with 120 feet.

It needs to be reset. Those dumb things have an enveloping switch that keeps it in a certain area to keep it stable. If someone turns off that switch and gets it to far out of the envelope it goes into creep mode that should reset once it gets fully retracted and down but the will stick. The only way to reset it is to have the programmer or laptop.

I found this all out the hard way. I was running it up and got mad at the enveloping because once you get so high every time you move sideways it moves the boom down or up and it doesn't do it slowly. I got mad and shut the enveloping switch off and got it where I needed to go. When I went to come back down it alarmed at me and locked in that creep mode. I got part way down and it reset so I went back up to get something I forgot and then it permanently locked in it till I got clear down.

It won't extend out. I need the full boom at around 45-50 degrees. It refuses.

When you are clear out away from anything you can't tell if you are even moving.

It won't let you. You can turn off the envelope switch but it will lock up.

You could try keeping the wheels in line with the body. It might let you get out there then.

The chart in the basket will show you where you can go.
