A friend of mine has a kubota, the FEL bucket will tilt up gradually after its parked.

Pretty annoying when it has forks installed.

There's a fine line between turning firewood into beautiful things and beautiful things into firewood.

Mine will also tilt upward but I was/am not blaming it on the "tilt" cylinders causing it.  My thought was that it was the longer "boom" cylinders gradually relaxing.  I do know that the FEL will gradually get lower but I need to mark the cylinder rods and find out exactly what is happening.

It's not causing me any "heartburn" which is why I have not done any investigation.  Your friends problem is probably mine.

My Kubota B26 TLB's hydraulics leak down slowly. It's really the only complaint I have with the machine. I questioned the dealer about this-  very good dealer, by the way- and they eventually found out that leakage equalling 2" in 5 minutes is considered within specs. It has to do with the design of the valves I was told. Love the tractor but this is a minor nuisance.
