make sure the guard and the switches for the guard are in the full up position.

It had an overhead guard in place in the past when it left the factory (and 'safety for the operator' says it should have a GOOD overhead guard in place still unless you don't lift over the height it is raising to now), and it should still have some wires that used to go up the overhead guard to switches (both sides, as I remember) that told the system that the folding overhead guard was in place to be able to protect the operator from falling objects lifted above his head. when the guard was folded down, it allowed operation in a low overhead, and prevented lifting above a safe level. "Hoist cutout" is the message it gives when any one of those switches did not see it's position as having the overhead guard properly locked in place.

no overhead guard? and you plan on lifting this over the top of mast height?
i think i'd be putting the OHG back on it
bypassing this safety feature just to get the mast to lift higher would be irresponsible.

You've been swooped!

Did you try re-calibrating the tilt sensor?

Thanks Truck Tech, I re-calibrating the tilt sensor and the tilt worked.
