One cylinder only ,creeping, and will not hold load? Internal cylinder leakage. Reseal the cylinder.

I see question is still open, did you find problem?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Hi Curtis. The machine has 110 hours and has started to drop. I have checked the Tackeuchi Specs and they allow a drop although I would expect this to be for a machine that is older.
Can you please advise further.
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 8 months ago.

Is it within specs on the drift? If not the cylinder likley has internal leakage. Is the unit in warranty, now would be the time to have it repaired.
