    John Deere M hydraulic question

    Hey Guys,
    Got a question regarding the rear hydraulics on my M... when my machine sits for a couple hours the arms drift down - should the hydraulics not lock in place when the machine is shut down? Or will they drift over time? Or do I need new seals on the pump somewhere? Thanks!

    It is normal for them to drift down over time, JD has a published spec on it as well. Fro safety reasons, everything really should be lowered anyway.
