Why does one side of the platform come up quicker than the other side occasionally?

There is a possibility that one side of the platform will move at a different rate than the other. The manifold in the hydraulic pump contains combiner-divider valves that regulate and equalize fluid flow to both lifting cylinders. These valves are 90% efficient, which means there may be a slight difference in the movement of the individual sides. This should be minimal, however, and not affect the operation of the lift system. You can try shifting the weight of your load toward the “faster” side. If the problem persists, follow the recommendations in the trouble shooting guide.
