    1025r Float Mode

    I used my front loader this am to plow the thick slushy snow last night and for some reason when i put it in float mode it seems to push down on its own and lifts the front tires. Makes steering impossible. I noticed this last year too. Anyone konw why this is happening? Pretty sure it does it with the 54” blower too.

    Sounds to me like you aren't actually making it to float mode. There's a detent, you can feel it in the stick when it makes it into float mode, and any lifting of the front stops. Are you positive you are in float mode?

    Welcome to the world of lightweight tractors. That is a common problem for a lot of SCUT/CUT tractors as they just don't have enough weight to keep the front tires planted on the ground when in float mode.

    It can sometimes be helped by carefully adjusting the tilt of the bucket. It does it all the time on my 2720 and it drives me crazy.

    Ya pretty positive. I give the stick a good whack froward and can feel the extra click. The bucket drops on its own. Then i start driving and it kinda feel like it pulsates pushing down and then pushes down further on its own. It doesnt lift the tires high off the ground just enough to raise the front tires a few inches.

    Good advice and something the OP should do ensure he is really in float mode. However, in float mode you will encounter another problem and that is if the bucket digs in at all the lift cylinders will get pushed back and it will lift the front tires off the ground. That's simply due to being a lightweight tractor.

    This was my initial thought as well.
    I had that problem when I was doing some trail maintenance. I thought the bucket was level or a bit positive angle, but it wasnt. Started going and up came the wheels.
    Kind of embarrassed to admit it took me a minute to figure out what was going on...but the tractor was new.

    Thanks guys! Hmm ok. Well my driveway is paved and i was moving snow. So no digging. Il pay more attention next time. But i use float every pass i make it and almost always picked the front tires uo some. So could just be the nature of the little beast.

    I doesn't matter whether it's snow, dirt or gravel. When in float mode, if the resistance is too much for the given weight of the tractor, it will lift the front tires off the ground. When this occurs, I find it best to slightly lift the bucket or blade off the surface being plowed. You also need to experiment with front and rear ballast to see what works best for you and your tractor. As jgayman basically said, it's a weight thing.

    I would try less weight in the rear, the day they delivered my 2025 we got 14” of snow and in a rush I put the ballast box on. In float I couldn’t steer at all, back to the garage and put 8 42# suitcase weights on and had no problems other than the already mentioned ones. I’ve found it best to not use float so I can manipulate the weight of the down force myself.
