Tractor Square Dancing (Sharp Turns)

Screen shot from Team Farmall video
A demonstration of why they put a "spinner" on the steering wheel and have turning brakes. Specifically, you can turn so sharp that one tire stays in the same place. Take a look at 1:04 and several other places in the video. Being able to turn sharp can get you in trouble in the field when pulling something because the inside tire will hit the implement's tongue and "cause problems." Yet at the end of the field, you sometimes need a rather sharp turn. The trick is to not stay in a sharp turn too long.

Update: I accidentally clicked this page and discovered that Facebook's video link had died the day I happened to see another posting of it. Since it has been posted in a public group, I'll use Christopher Johnson's link to the video.
