Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Need to lower rear gangs(change level fore to aft) some to throw more soil or possibly increase ground speed. Also increasing the angle of rear gangs could help fill the valley.

Sounds like you need to angle the rear gang a bit more to throw more of the dirt back toward the center.
Also check level front-to-back to see if the front gang is digging in deeper and throwing more dirt than the rear gang.
Are the discs on the rear worn down more than the front discs or are they pretty much equal? Just some things to look for.

I'm not sure from your description where the humps are. Do you mean that it leaves a ridge behind the disc in the middle of the pass?

If it is leaving a low area or a ridge behind the disc, the angle of the rear gang needs to be adjusted, or maybe both front and rear gangs so they equal out.

leveling front to back, rankness adjustments, uneven wear, ground speed, depth, gang spacing, proper overlap one pass to the next...

a few places to start :)

Disks will do that, adjusting the disk properly (more art than science, some models you can't get perfect....) will do more for you than a harrow.

Describe the disk better, as the other person asks, single or double gang, and so on.

is it a single gang or double gang? Has it been leveled if it is a double gang?
