Was it doing this while it was on the wheels and not leveled?
If so, I'd start looking for a small leakdown or bypass in whatever other systems the hydraulics support.
I've seen this on mechanical equipment that had position sensors involved. Unit would cycle to correct position and shut off. Then it would drift because of a bypass leak which would cause it to cycle to move back to position.
