Problem with new Floor Jack

Against the advice of the list, I purchased one of those Chinese floor jacks. 
It's a 3 ton model that was on sale at Sears. It's very hefty and does a 
great job of lifting, but it has one problem. It has just one speed going 
down, FAST! No matter how slightly I open the valve it goes down whoosh. I'm 
really not interested in how high my TD will bounce. Has anybody had this 
problem? Would thicker hydraulic fluid help? The instructions are rather 
brief. Could there be an adjustment for this?
