I have already posted my method, but I agree and disagree with this statement. I agree that no need to slow down with a sickle type cutter moco cause you are pretty much limited to about 6 mph maximum travel speed anyhow or it will not cut. I could safely make a 90 turn at 6 mph without issue even with my antique trikes.

However with a disc mower type cutter it is possible to go much faster 12-14 mph is not uncommon. No way I would feel comfortable making a 90 turn at that speed on even a modern tractor let alone my antique trikes. Powershift, over under, multipower, etc would be nice allowing you to safely slow down for the turn then speed back up again after the turn. If I did not have a way to slow down for turns or did not want to fool with slowing down then I would mow in lands or back and forth if my mower was of that design and i could safely make the required maneuver at the fast speed.

Regardless stopping and backing up would never be a normal maneuver that I would choose to do often.
