Key to the successful pperaticn of the Mini-Beep is its articulatlng OT "cente(-l1in~e" steering. Slnee froni and back sections are joined III the center by a single pin, they're able to create your tum e\ilien before you start railing. Just turn rt,·e whool wtth the machine at rest and th Beep 'swivof-hips" into a 45 turn standing stllll This extreme rnaneuverabilitv IS essential for rolling seeding and other lawn cafe operations. up close to nu rid ing!:" fe noes , shrubs trees. etc. With the fmc-floating mower out tn front ,of the Beep, you practically ellmlnata all hand tnmrrunq,

The only (mot control Is a eornblnatien clutch and brake pe:dal.

In two wheal drive the engaged transmission shiftsindependerttlv. the other just rides free when n04; working. A uni:que lockout deVfC{l on nacn transmission allows only properly-mated gears ttl be used when going into four wheel drive. It's impossible to shih Into cp pos.ing gears and pull the Beep-apart. And. due to the svnchrenlzaticn of the twO, transaxles, you are able to shift from two to four wheel drive" on the go".
