Explanation:
Floating position button

Selects the floating (variable) position [as of the front hydraulics]

As described in the URL below, the Schwimmstellung of the front hydraulics allows improved terrain-following of the mowing mechanism:
>>durch Schwimmstellung der Schlepperfronthydraulik wird Bodenanpassung verbessert.<<

(The validty of _floating_ for positionally variable in mechanical systems is also borne out in Ernst, DeVries-Herrman and Whylidal, among others.)
