It's been great reads and ill be hanging around for sure.

    What would FLOAT on the rear remotes be good for ???
    The 3 point has no down pressure on basically floats. I have no idea what you would use float for with rear remotes.
    I know I have never run into anything where I needed a float feature on my rear remotes.

    Nope not me.. I had the detentes removed, but that does not equal a float setting.. not like what you have on the FEL.

    I would have done the same thing. When Bobcat pulls the plug just by a few extra cans of Chevy Engine Orange and come back to the Kioti forum. We don't discriminate against albino tractors.

    Top link, believe it or not, there are people that mow stuff so rough that the articulated point on the mower does not allow for enough movement of the mower and using a chain for the top link IS NOT SAFE and only allows for extra movement towards the tractor, not away from it.

    Side link, yes the 3pt hitch can float up and down. But it will not allow an implement to float side to side. That is where a floating side link can make a huge difference with how a project comes out. There must be some use for it, all the deluxe John Deeres starting at the 3000 series have it mechanically available in their lower clevises along with kubota with the 8540 and up. Several of the other manufacturers also have this floating option available on their larger tractors. All the different manufacturers that offer this have it built into the lower clevises of the 3pt hitch. All that I suggest, is to have it available in the hydraulic at the tip of your hand vs the clevis and have to stop the tractor each time you need this to make use of this option manually.

    I personally use this option when finish grading my roads. At intersections, the camber of the road changes going from one road to another. You don't want the implement to follow the tractor as it changes, but want the implement to follow the actual ground that it is above. Another TBN member "Piston" uses the float function to rake his rough fields and is quite happy with the outcome.

    Just a few examples.
