Am I supposed to be in Float Mode?

    Normal plowing, no shoes, do I just lower the blade till it hits the ground, or am I actually supposed to have it in 'Float' mode?

    Just curious.

    Float. If you are not and the ground contour drops your blade will not follow.

    I know what you mean, I normally just hold the controller in my lap with the button down my entire pass. Another thing you can try is double click the down buttin real fast and its will go to float. and a quick double click on the up will pull the plow to the very top.

    I use a strip of velcro & hook it to my leg. I usually just hold the button down while I am going. I am usually lifting before I am stopped to so that way I am ready to back up.

    the double click feature works both ways. up and down. double down puts it into float mode. very handy. the first few times i did this going up i thought something was sticking on the controller. now i don't know how i lived with out it.

    Double click feature is only on the new controllers.
