Anyone have a user manual or know where to find any instructions for a Lemken Hellidor Gigant 10 speed tillage disk? Borrowed a neighbour’s unit and asked how to set the depth on it. He shrugged his shoulders and said he feathers the hydraulics for depth. I don’t see that being consistent and I’m sure is an adjustment some place on the machine, but which part and which way to go?

videos or PDFs links would be greatful.

The depth is gauged by the roller baskets. You set the depth using the lower pin on each side of the roller basket gangs to set the desired depth. Then run your hydraulics in float to let the machine contour along the ground. In very soft ground you can feather some weight on the tires to keep from sinking in too deep. Conversely, in very hard ground you can use the hydraulics to actually push the discs into the ground by removing weight from the tires. There is actually an adjustable relief valve you can set to limit how hard how hard you can push.

But generally just run the hydraulic scv in float and let the baskets set the depth.
