    become efficient at the 3-point turn. with a little english, the tires will just lay down a little grass

    Slow down at the end of your row, watch your inside tire of your turn. When you get to the end slow down, pull back on your inside turn tire, make sure it has started rotating backwards then push your outside leverforward. See if that helps.

    in my opinion the three point turn idea works the best at the end of each row.

    Please explain the 3 Point Turn. This is my first point. :)

    Sorry about that! Must be too excited, as I haven't been able to log in for some time!

    Does anyone notice clumps when turning while mulching? I sometimes make wide turns to avoid clumping in tall grass.
