Hello,

Have you tried lifting a load while holding the tilt lever full in the rack-back position?

If this helps you have the power to lift the load, then you have resolver seals leaking. This is very common and the parts are not very expensive.

If that does not change the lifting power, then you could have a relief valve damaged or weak.

Here is an image to show the location of the resolver check valves. NOTE: #2 has a loose chack ball and can be easily lost.

Your dealer can provide you seals and new check balls if needed. Each valve section contains both of these resolvers and the Inlet section has one of the #2 resolvers.
