Depending on the length/strength of your arm, you may still be able to lift it from the driver's seat.
One thing that you may be able to answer for me:
Does the top bounce up & down when in the lowered position?
I used to be able to count on the hydraulic cylinder to keep it tensioned when lowered.
Now I am concerned that it may have a tendency to float when going down a bumpy (95% of Toledo) road.
