English translation:side adjustment wheels
Explanation:
"The height of the entire machine is regulated, independently on either side, by means of side adjustment wheels."

We seem to be talking here of the kind of screw-type devices that are used to finely adjust very heavy equipment or turn on and off huge pipe valves. It is normally a spoked wheel with a handle perpendicular to the outer ring.
