How to Establish a John Deere 54 Front Blade from the Float Rank
A 54-inch front blade is a handy attachment that fits onto numerous models of John Deere compact utility tractors. The blade may be used to remove ice or to shift heaps of materials like soil and mulch from 1 location to another. When you’re moving snow, soil or mulch over uneven terrain, then you must place the front blade to the float position so that the blade’s height will instinctively adjust to and hover above the terrain, as opposed to digging into it.
Depress the brake pedal, place the throttle, then adjust the choke and turn the ignition key to start the tractor’s engine. Run the machine for one minute as a preparatory warm-up period.
Position the selective control valve lever into the forward-most setting, also known as the float position. This will adjust the blade into the bottom position. John Deere suggests utilizing the float place for many operating conditions.
Pull the selective control valve lever back toward you to raise the front blade and then discharge it from the float position.
