    Do you have to get off the Proslide when turning 180. I dont think I can turn around without a little reverse to keep from tearing up grass. Is that true or false?

    Probably. Depends on conditions and height of grass.

    no problem at all. lets say i am turning left, i can even pull the left whell back about 6-8" without any problems. Once you get the hang of it your gold.
