I recently replaced my old side delivery hay rake with an 8 wheel Kuhn SR8 v rake. I am new to v rakes so I was wondering just how important the hydraulic float function is while in the raking position. The tractor hydraulics have a float setting but is it needed when raking relatively flat ground?

float lets the rake follow the terrain better.Not totally neccessary,but teeth tend to last longer on float. And less gougeing and missed hay on float.
