Customer Question

Hi, I have a Gehl 883 that tilts the cab when using other functions. We're 100 miles from any kind of service so I looking to figure this out without hauling the equipment a long ways. Obviously a hydraulic problem but here should I start.

So Inshould be looking at the main valve at the back of the lift? It looks like the V30 valve block but mine has 5 sections instead of 4

I think I figure it out. The tilt lever is hanging up sometimes to the left
