 bucket float control

Forgive the newbie question but I am reading the manual for my "new" (20 year-old) Kubota L2850 and it says to put the bucket lift control in the float position for working on a hard surface. The manual illustration seems to show some position that is ultra forward for the lift control (further "down" than "down"Wink yeah right. Can this be possible? Wouldn't that just be driving the bucket further into the ground? I'm imagining that for snow plowing you do want the bucket to float on the ground, right?

The "float" position will not drive the bucket further into the ground. The stick is pushed forward beyond the bucket lowering position which allows it to operate independantly.

You need to practice a couple of times over some soft ground. With the bucket about 6 inches off the ground quickly "jamb" the stick through the forward position and into float position. If you do it slowly you WILL force the bucket down.

Ok, terrific. Thanks for the quick feedback. I will practice on some soft ground I don't care about. This is going to be very useful.

Don't raise the bucket too high when you do that. It will drop in a hurry.

Once you have the bucket "floating" then you need to adjust the tilt angle up or down so that you just scrape the top surface, whether it's snow or gravel material. This tilt angle will vary depending on several factors which you will learn with practice.

 bucket float control

I have had several L2550s, which are the same as the
L2850s, except for the engine. I noticed that all of the
units that I acquired (used and abused) had worn off
loader joystick labels, which show how to use FLOAT. Also,
you could tell no one used the FLOAT position as the
joystick (though sloppy from wear) was resistent to getting
into the FLOAT position.

My B2410(FEL LA352) float control works if I hold it manaully in float but I thought it used to stay in float(as if it had a detent). The memory is a terrible thing to go waste but it had been a while since I had used the float. Am I remembering it correctly?
