Have the manual taps for individual rotor lift. Most of the time now if say I lift the right side first the left will then lift slightly leaving a bit of grass. Is the tap worn internally?

Is it lifting on the hydraulics or is the weight of the opposite rotor being lifted pulling the rake over causing it to be lifted slightly?

Would say this is the reason, on individual spools here & when you lift 1 side with the other in float can lift the wheel a bit but misses nothing, with the setup you have the opposite side to what you are lifting isn't in float so can't drop to compensate for the weight.

It's only recently started doing it.

Also if you lower one rotor doing short work the other one will creep down before I turn the tap to release it.
The taps worn ours did the same. we ended up getting another tap off a friends machine that was spare. Don’t think we could get the seals for ours at the time
