this will make a three point turn with a belt drive walk behind when done correctly.

Unless you have a tbar, then there is no feathering, just pull back on the red stationary bar on the corner where you want to make the turn.
this causes a tight three point.

T bar belt drive is amazing for this, once you learn how to do it right.
And what i have is in fact a belt. Most of the time i can do it decent, but that one day it was a little damp, i didn't worry about it and i guess i saw the outcome.
