As a newbie, I just had a new model 47 snowblower installed on a 445 and was blowing snow today with it. My question is, does the blower " float" went lowered or is there a constant downward pressure? When using it today, when down the front wheels were either off the ground or the blower was not touching the ground. :greendr: thanks dan

You have to put it in the float position. The bottom lever should push forward farther and click into the float detent position. Good luck

As mentioned, the lower lever (assuming you have the hoses connected properly) has a float position that is a little past the down position. If you only push that lever to the down position, it will continue to exert down on the blower/plow and raise the front wheels off the ground. Push the lever to what feels like the end, then push a little further at which time that hydro circuit will go into float. The lever will stay forward.

This is a seat picture of the lower lever in float position on my tractor, looks the same on the 445.

Hey guys, thanks for the info, you were right about the lower lever. It was my fault because I was not pushing hard enough on the lever to hit the valve to release the pressure to make the blower float. Typical newbie mistake I admit . :thanku: Many thanks dan
