Boom floating system allows free up and down movements of the boom, which means the attachment follows the contours of ground – a useful feature when levelling the ground with a bucket or working with the dozer blade. Boom floating can be switched on and off with the switch on the dashboard.
Also machines with self levelling can be equipped with boom floating as an option. Self levelling is disabled when the boom floating is switched on.
