My accuset 2 does the same thing..coming "up" to the target mark is more accurate Im told, than coming "down" to the mark. Like tuning a guitar string... ;D

The reason for the "bump up" is to ensure the lift chain ABOVE the head is as tight as possible. You need to do the same when you do a manual set as well. Otherwise the head will drop slightly when you engage the clutch to start your cut.
If you ain't livin on the edge you are takin up way to much room. Of course at my age if I get too close to that edge any more theres a good chance I may fall off.
