5211 Help

Its been a while since I was last here but I still have my 5211 and love it!!

By know means do I know everything about this tractor and all its functions.. I still dont even know what all the levers do.. Anyways, I just do basic things around the property with it but always run into the same problem when using 3 pt impliments.. Is there a way to "float" an impliment so it follows the contours of the ground (like having it sepearted from the hydraulics)? For example, if I install a 3 pt snowblower, is there a setting or lever that will allow the snowblower to follow the contour in the ground as apposed to putting down pressure? Even if I set my up/down lever at a certain height, it will still skip over holes and dig into bumps. I just want it to lower, then float because my parking lot is stone and I dont want it to dig into it.. Even with skids on the blower I still dig into the stone so I was hoping there was something I could do to relieve it from the hydraulics? Or is there another lever that does this?

Thanks for any help!!!

put the small lever D-M-P in the D position: It will lift the blower out of the top link, and drop it as soon as the snowblower drops (pulls on the top link: draft control senses this and drops the lift arms a bit)
When that works too agressive, try the M (mixed) setting.


1967 Zetor 3011, technically new, needs paint
1973 Zetor 5718, repainted and shiny, rebuilding it bit by bit
1978 Zetor 5718, rough but full options !! (synchro box, power steering and 1000rpm PTO) wink

Or else simply put it in "P" and leave the lever well down, but not all the way down as some tractors will lift a little with the lever at the bottom of the quadrant, then lengthen the top link a little so that it doesn't dig in,

I just went and looked and its currently set on M and I have never adjusted it since owning it so I will play with it tonight..

What is the lever next to the 3 pt raise/lower lever? The previous owner has it wired all the way forward.. He has it wired to the small lever thats directly in front of these 2 levers, which is set all the way to the left when looking at it from the front..
