    3 point float on x758?

    Is there a way to get the 3 point to float? I'm trying to do some landscaping (gill and landscape rake work) and would love to be able to. It's odd that the front blade control will float but the rear doesn't. Am I missing something?

    The rear is always floating as there is no down pressure. Only lift on my tractor anyway. Perhaps these smaller units are dfferent. Not sure.

    Perhaps you need a set of wheels for the rake.

    I don't own a rake but have read here that they seem to be usefull.

    Perhaps that is the answer or not?

    The 3PH will not float like the bucket does. While it does not have any down pressure if you run over a bump with the rear tires it will cause your implement to raise up. It is very difficult to get a blade or rake to follow the contours of the ground with the top link connected.
