Agreed, no need to slow down or stop and back up to make a 90 degree turn while cutting if technique is right.
I do that on outside rounds easy, but at least with my mower/tractor combo do a 90 degree turn at normal speed in heavy crop puts more strain on the tractor i.e. lugs the engine down when using the wheel brake. My tractor is the minimum HP size for the mower.
Field size and shape play a factor as well. The fields I cut are small (1 acre to 16 acres) and mostly irregular shape so there is a lot of turning compared to cutting a perfectly square 40 acre field.
