I'd think you'd want it that way. If you could really lock it down, I don't think you could get enough traction to really dig with it. Calling it a dozer blade for a garden tractor conjers up images of being able to move mountains. Ain't gonna happen with a GT. I doze with the bucket down on my FNH1715 locked in 4WD with Ag tires all around and it's limited as to what it can do.Originally posted by Ed_GT5000
If the dozer blade is not altered and installed according to directions, It will float up even if the lift handle is locked down.
