Well said - whatever works best for the tractor, mower type, and field shape that you are mowing.
Lots of us it does not matter what technique we use because it is not really significant in time wasted or fuel wasted if we choose to use a technique that is less than optimized since it makes so little difference on small acreage with smaller tractors that do not burn much fuel.
That said, it does make a difference for big time operators who are using tractors that are of big hp and burning 9-10 gallon of fuel per hour and have lots of acres to cover. Inefficient patterns make for wasted time and wasted fuel that really adds up.
Not my video, but shows a moco doing 6 mph and a 90 degree turn as well as a loop around turn. Also shows their upgrade to discbine doing 12 mph.
