I only have experience with some JLG's . If it has a switch to select between 4x4 and 4x2 check for power at the switch and to the relay/solenoid that controls the hydraulic flow to the motors at the wheels.

I’m not sure on that specific model but all the man lifts I’ve worked on were hydraulic drive on each wheel and they all had a round plate in the middle of the hub that you can unbolt and flip over that pushes on a pin to release the drive so it can be pulled without dragging the wheels if the engine isn’t running. 
just flip all of them around and then just engage one at a time and see if each wheel is working.

CAUTION!!!

If you disengage all of the planetaries in that fashion there will not be anything to keep the man lift from rolling away 

In other words, if you disengage 3 of the wheels and the fourth wheel has a planetary or drive motor problem the man lift could roll away from you.

 I do like the recommendation of sufficiently restraining the chassis and observing which wheels spin.

Good call. I was just assuming working on a level shop floor.

Yes, but most shop floors are not level.  Typically they are pitched to shed water either to a floor drain or out the door.  Either way it could get ugly quickly!!

Be careful if you jack up. Man lifts are very heavy

Kind of tongue in cheek because I'm sure officials or owners would frown on it. But, around here we use Rompun (sedative) when something needs their azz settled down. Probably talkin some BIG money so better to do it their way😀

I used to be able to tell the topside of a few particular horses.

That was where the pretty/crazy/pretty crazy woman sat.  She WAS my girlfriend at the time.
