I have a Ford 8N tractor. I'm unsure of the use of the Position/Draft Control Lever. For using a Brushhog or a Snow Blower, where should this control be placed? Thanks for your help.

You really only need draft control when plowing a field, and sometimes using a disc and cultivator, other than that no need. What you should use with a bush hog, finish mower, and back blade is stabilizer bars.

Ns are great tractors for plowing, discing, mowing and the likeAnd they will move a Lot of snow with either a back blade or front mounted snow plow.
But they are a poor choice for use on a snow blower.
Biggest problem is their ground speed is much too fast. Especially in reverse which is how most snow blowers are used.
And this is to say nothing about their lack of live hydraulics and live PTO.

Check out tips 34, 57 & 58.

Draft control is for implements IN the dirt: plows & cultivators.

What the position control does is set the height of your implement according to where you have the touch control lever. In other words your implement stays at the height you set it at.
In draft mode, your implement is on the ground. In draft mode all your touch control lever will do is all the way up or all the way down. Of course if it's working properly it will auto raise a plow when the need arises.

Without question, for what you are doing, "position".

Th exception is "a ground-engaging implement", which is a fancy term for a moldboard plow.

HOPEFULLY, your "hog" or blowsnower are NOT "ground engaging!"

There is a furguson sit that shows how draft control works it internally moves your lever up and picks implement up when tractor has resistance ferrow plow.if your draft control works mine does not only position control does i use position for brush hoging.
