For the last two years I run a nearly new Kubota that same size in the fall picking up leaves for the widow of a very dear friend. The belly deck raise lever is the same as the three point lift lever. 3pt operates first. When the 3pt is all the way up, the deck then raises. Seems very akward to me but it works. I think you are supposed to pin the deck in the up position if you want to run 3pt equipment and if you are running the deck mowing there is usually nothing on the 3pt so the 3pt just goes up and down each time. ????
I run the deck wile pulling a Cyclone vacuum. The tractor doesn't have a drawbar so there is a makeshift drawbar hooked to the 3pt arms. Much like an old 9N Ford. This makes the Cyclone tongue raise way up when I need to raise the deck but I can't very well pin the deck up when chewing up leaves. I'm probably supposed to lock the 3pt so it stays put but I don't know how on her tractor.
