Sounds like it has a Lock-Out pin.The Lock-out pin is for Down Pressure while Plowing.You do Not want down pressure for Blowing or mowing.Remove the Tunnel cover and see if it has this Pin installed.

If it has this Pin Remove it and put it some place where you will remember where it is.

 

Can you Post a Pic of your Lift rod?

Every blower I've ever seen on a cub has only lifted a few inches so that's normal but you should check for the float lock pin as Eric suggested.

I built a bracket that extended the lift arm because the plow would not lift high enough to get it on the trailer.  I curled the bottom under the arm for support, and if I leave the bolt a little loose I can get float for the plow only.  I think I have a pic somewhere...

That's to be expected. Never had one that lifted more a couple inches. Have any pics. of the beast?

What model blower is it?  A QA42 or QA36 will only lift a few inches like the others have said.  I believe a QA42A or QA36A will lift a little bit higher because they have a parallel arm setup on them.  It's not much but I do believe it's more.
