Re: 3-pt chains?
The top link adjusts the angle of the implement to the ground, eg. shorten the top link to make a back blade stand up straighter for scraping, or lenthen it for digging. Trial and error to find what works for you.
The threaded rods on the lift links allow you to level or tilt the implement based on what is required to do the job. Lenghten one and shorten the other and you can do ditching with a backblade. Another reason for the anti-sway chains.
The range of lift and lower can also be moved higher or lower with the levelling screws but there should be lots of lifting range on your 3PH so this isn't normally a problem. If you adjust to raise the implement higher for transport, you lose on the depth it will go down.
