If your tractor has 3 remotes you should by all means use all 3. Alot of people combine the cylinders on the two wings to one remote b/c they only have 2 remotes on the tractor.
If you have 3 and you have for instance a ditch to mow, you can drop one wing in the ditch, lower the main blade, and then set the second wing at an appropriate height to keep a clean cut without scalping the edges. You can also raise a wing slightly to clear stumps, rocks, culverts, etc, without going way off course.
You can certainly get by with only 2 remotes, but its advantageous to have 3, and if you have the remotes on the tractor already, its certainly not more work to reach over and hit 1 more lever.
Thats my opinion. I have 2 BW's, one 15' and one 20' and have them both set up for 3 remotes.
