Re: Why would bucket sag?

Sometimes my FEL bucket will stay up, sometimes not. Haven't picked up on a pattern. I usually put it on the ground, but sometimes leave it up a few inches as a test. No one else on the property, all gated and fenced.

A day or two ago, I noticed the BH bucket was on the ground and the boom tilted back. I usually leave it up in the Home position and it will stay there indefinitely with or without the boom lock in place. I'm guessing I left it just enough off 'Home' to allow gravity to take over and let it sag over several days.
