...I've been reading here about floating the unit, having not used it yet, Is there a float position, mine just seems to raise the front. have not read such in the blower manual. thanks
..Thanks, Will give 'er a go first time probably tomorrow am...The lower lever on the dash should lift and lower the blower. Push it all the way forward and it will lock. That is the float position. I always use it on my loader so I don't have to wait to put the loader down. When you want to lift it, just pull it towards you and you are all set.
From the X728 operator's manual at the Deere site. http://manuals.deere.com/cceomview/OMM162947_G0/Output/Index.html?tM=HO..Thanks, Will give 'er a go first time probably tomorrow am...
can't believe it's not mentioned in the manual. or I missed it. kd
Using Hydraulic Control Levers
NOTE: Hydraulic control levers operate differently depending on attachment. See attachment operator’s manual before using hydraulic control levers with an attachment.
When attachment hydraulic hoses are connected to couplers (A) (black) and (B) (green), push lower hydraulic control lever (C) forward to divert fluid to coupler (A) and return through coupler (B). Pull lever backward to divert fluid to coupler (B) and return through coupler (A). Push lever to the full forward or float position to remove pressure in both lines and allow fluid to flow back and forth between lines. Lever should return to neutral position when released.
When attachment hydraulic hoses are connected to couplers (D) (yellow) and (E) (silver), push upper hydraulic control lever (F) forward to divert fluid to coupler (D) and return through coupler (E). Pull lever backward to divert fluid to coupler (E) and return through coupler (D). Lever should return to neutral position when released.
NOTE: When not using lower hydraulic control lever, periodically move lever back and forth to maintain lubrication. Be sure lever is returned to middle (neutral) position and not locked in forward (float) position.
I have the 2010 quick-hitch snowblower 47-inch OMM145749 K6 operators manual on my lap...I did finally find it mentioned in the tractor manual, but not in the 47 blower user instructions. ( it's a 2010)...
