On the NHTC30 (and most other tractors the lifting rod of the PTO on the right side has the ability to screw up and down. This is not true on the left side - why? Would it not be handy to have one on both sides? The left rod has adjustable bolts to change would not a screw be easier. Would one fit?

The height of the left side you control with the position control lever. The right side is to adjust the tilt/level of the attachment. This is just the standard way to do it. You could put an adjustable mechanism on both arms if you want to.

It's a terminology issue but I guess the question is about the 3-point hitch. My Ford has a crank leveler on one side. When you crank it, one end of an implement goes one way and the other end moves in the opposite direction.

Some hydraulic levelers do have adjustments on both sides but that just provides a greater range of adjustment. Generally a leveler is used to just to level an implement or give it a slightly different tilt than the tractor has, so a limited range of adjustment usually is adequate.

I do use my side-leveler to cut mild side-grades with a box scraper--usually I'm putting crowns on drives. I haven't wished for more adjustment than given by my single-sided leveler. When using an implement in this manner, you do have to be aware that 3ph's don't hold an implement down and that the lower link-arms on many 3ph's can float independently. If I sit the whole weight of the box down on the ground, the box tends to take the same angle as the ground irrespective of the side-leveler adjustment. When I cut side-grades, I hold one end of the box off the ground with position control and make repeated passes until I have the new grade worked across the entire width of the blade.
