Several things come into play to make the turning easy. length of handlbar, location of weight and free wheeling tines.

The handle bar is long enough to give you good leverage against the mass of the machine and they are mounted a little behind the pivot axle for added leverage.

The weight is concentrated right over the tines so you do not have to lift mass to turn just pull sideways on the long handle.

The center tines are the drivers and the outside sets are free wheeling. So the leverage only has to pivot the center tines when making turns.

Call if you have more questions. 402-783-2028 cell 402-432-2446
