I just picked up a 1996 4020 everything was working fine . Cut the grass and leaves with the hydravac parked it in the garage and put in float . Went back out the next day to finish my leaves and I can't get it to come out of float . Can't lift the deck. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated .
If the control lever is 'floppy', likely something came disconnected or the ball joint separated.
If the control lever is 'jammed' in the float position, that could more likely indicate a stuck or corroded detent in the lift circuit. Could be another interference in the linkage, also. Let us know your findings and there will be plenty of guidance from the forum members.
