Quick Mower Turn
#1

I find with the self propelled that I turn it quickly while it is in motion even with 180 degree turn. Cuts the time down. But the question is, is it healthy for the mower?

Better qualified here may disagree but I think the outside wheel will ratchet so no damage done. I certainly do most turns with the drive engaged. Maybe not 180s.

My son started a mowing business and helping him out I was half the speed. Now I'm fairly quick doing a few lawns myself now, he recommended the fast turn while self powered. I use it half the time as it's not always the right moment and only really on slower speeds. But at first it was difficult but I'm getting used to it.
