    That's great! :laugh: The narration made the video for sure. If it wasn't for that I wouldn't have had a clue what was going on for the first 2 minutes while waiting for the guy in the mower to get close enough to be SEEN. The guy know what a ZOOM function was on the camera?

    The one 180* turn we actually got to see, looked like a wild ride, plus you have to go one way, then like lightning fast have to change direction to get turned the other way... looks like it would take a LOT of practice, and not something I'd want to attempt if pointed down a slight grade with something of value in front of me.

    It reminded me of that mushroom turn that Topsite is always posting.. I wish that video was on a normal yard.

    From the video it looks like it will pull a sulky but did anyone notice how the front end of the mower looked like it was jumping up whenever it went over rough ground? I'm a more than a little suspicious about Quick36 turning with a sulky, if its so good at it why didn't they show it up close???? Looks fishy to me.

    for what it is i think its pretty good. you must remember that this is a single hydro unit. obviously a dual hydro would steer better, and easier, but this seems alright. can other single hydro machines do this, like the ferris. i agree i would also like to see it on a different yard, more normal(flat, open).

    I thought the far away film footage was a little suspicious too. But I think you can see it good enough to realize that it turns better than you would think....with the step-saver. I, too, would like to see it closer.

    That was Jameson, (narrating), he is or was a member of the forum here. I was also surprised by how easily it seemed to turn.

    I have a 32" Ferris and tried it. Not easy at all. You have to muscle the machine around pretty good. The Ferris is a lot longer though so that may have an effect on it.It is also heavier. I have never tried a Q36 to compare.
