To be honest I haven't had time to disconnect the bushhog and test it. It works fine with it attached. I checked to valve below the seat and it was open all the way, I closed it and opened it back up and that is all have done so far. Thanks for asking I'm open to suggestions.

Don't know if this is a remedy, but cycle, cycle, cycle. On a regular basis. Cycle everything. It is a regular protocol for nearly all hydraulics used professionally, whether military, fire, construction, etc. This keeps the air and moisture from accumulating where it can cause problems as well as checking all functions before you need them.

Now at home. Well, its easy to get lazy, or distracted, or forgetful. I know. Just how life is for all of us.

Thanks from Wasted ammo

I need to do just that make time to just get on it and use everything. I mainly use the front end loader to pick stuff up. I welded some chain hooks to some flat bar and bolted them to the bucket yesterday. I can't pick up stuff like I could when I was 20.

It should be a twist knob just turn it until you get the desired fall rate you want with no load.
This valve is called the "Viscosity Valve". It is used to "Fine Tune" the speed of how fast the lift mechanism lowers an implement because of different weights & oil viscosity as it changes with temperature. As the tractor / implement combo is used throughout the day this valve may get adjusted several times as the oil heats up. I have four tractors, a L1500 Kubota, A 3320 Zetor, a 3000 Ford & a 5000 Ford. The Kubota has a knob under the front of the seat that says Fast & Slow with arrows for each. The 3000 has a lever that sorta does the same thing in a limited capacity. The Zetor I'm not sure but the 5000 has a more complicated apparatus that has to do with the draft control.
Anyway this almost certainly is going to be the problem area to look at.

OK I didn't get to finish my post last night due to an emergency on the carport involving a rather large Possum & equally large Weeny dog...

Anyway if the problem turns out NOT to be hydraulic in nature then as some one stated before it COULD be that the humid environment has caused the piston & cyl that rotates the rockshaft to rust up. If the lift has not been used much the cyl can flash rust & cause the piston to stick / drag. Repetitious use of the lift w/ a heavy implement MAY clean it up OR it could require disassembly & further attention. Good Luck!
