Hi guys & gals ..

I'm doing a bit of work on a friends R170 and need a bit of help !

When the roof closes it does so very abruptly for the last bit , banging home as such .
Does anyone know how and where to adjust the roof so it closes smoother ??

Thanks .....

The roofs are heavy and I would imagine that is at the point the hydraulic pressure drops off...I was really surprised when I let the hydraulic pressure fall off on my r171 when first trying to brace the roof open...the brace was not quite at neutral and I tried to catch my roof....was very surprised by how heavy it was, I wedged myself in between it and reached down to build the pressure back up by hitting the switch. I have not adjusted one but hydraulics are a fickle thing when it comes to pressure.

JB, we know you are rolling in cash! That's how you can afford to do that mulching constantly and all the cleaning products.
