    three point hitch

    New to the 1025r I was wondering if the 3 point has a float setting also? Thanks

    Three points do not generate down pressure (though there are some that have that option on larger tractors), so every setting except all the way up is "float."

    Even though it has no down pressure, does the 3PH really float? Once lowered it can raise up but it can't really go down. If it could truly float and follow the ground why is it so difficult to smooth ground without the rear blade raising every time the rear wheels hit a bump?

    The loader on the other hand does truly float. Once lowered and the SCV latching into float mode the bucket will follow the contour of the ground.

    Or am I missing something?

    Sounds like you need to check the 3-point drop rate valve under the seat, it's probably turned in (clockwise) too far, which would prevent or slow it from dropping.

    I'm confused by these posts. When you lower the 3pt aren't you in essence setting the lowest point at which it will go?

    If it did indeed float wouldn't I be scalping the grass when I lowered the Bush hog? I understand that maybe it's a one-way float---up, but it doesn't float down once set

    Depending on the type of implement attached, it can be looked at in this manner:
    Just as on the loader cylinders, placing the loader valve in float position, the loader will float until it reaches it's limit, basically each end of the cylinder's stroke. So yes, when the 3 point hitch lever is placed in it's lowest position, the hitch will float until it reaches it's limit.

    But it will "float" back down...to the lower limit set by the rockshaft valve.

    The rockshaft lever sets the lower limit, so the 3PH will float between the uppermost position and the lowest position set by the lever. Push the lever all the forward and the 3PH will float all the way through from the lowermost to the uppermost limit.

    But it should be noted that is only rate of drop, not depth of drop
