Same here, Rack Deads are a blast!!! And yes, pulling from different heights are a great way to increase over all power for deads.
What I did in the past from the floor, I went abit lighter, yet focusing on the tempo from the floor to mid shin area...TUT...time under tension. Proper mechanics are key!
