I asked a question about a genie Z45 man lift on June 28th

Customer Question

I asked a question about a genie Z45 man lift on June 28th and have not received any correspondence as of today.
I have a Genie Z45 Articulated man lift. It is a*****unit with oscillating axles. I parked it on an uneven surface and it sit there for several days. I tried to use it and one of the drive wheels is off the ground and it doesn't level itself.
I noticed it said to park it on level ground when parking it. After parking it on level ground, I notice it is leaning to one side. Any ideas?

Curtis, Thanks for the Tech information. I do not have any pressure on the cylinders and am trying to find the oscillate valve. Can you tell me where it is?

Mounted on the main frame, where the cylinder hoses come from!

Found the manual valve and it appeared to be stuck as I had to work with it to get it unstuck. However, after moving it up and down the steering wheels raised and lowered appropriately. Could I have a stuck valve from being sitting around? The rod moved more freely after I cycled it a few times. Do they tend to stick after prolonged idleness? Tks

Lack of use will let them seize !
