There is no down force on the 3-point and a hydraulic top link won't provide it either. The hydraulic top link only adjusts the angle.

Is the rate of drop knob turned all the way so it drops at its fastest rate? I've heard of putting additional weight on implements to help hold them down. If it reaches its mechanical limit neither of these ideas will help.

It would drop from raised to down in apx 2 seconds but sure screw tingy was not full open maybe 1/2 turn. so what you are saying if dropped and jpt lever jumps to mid/off it should still go down if not hitting a mech limit? Manual doesn't cover these fine points!

If it dropped too slow for the speed you were traveling it may not drop fast enough and skip some spots. It should eventually drop all the way with the control in full down position and the rate knob somewhere less than full closed.

Thinking about what you said makes sense after few minutes. Need to screw knob all the way open to do the height change as fast as possible. Think was worried about warnings to not catch toes/speed down. Now I just need snow to try!! ThaNX again Patr

Welcome to the "I rolled it and I never want to do THAT again" club! Glad to help - some other folks who own BXs may chip in with more info. It's a little slow here on weekends sometimes.
