Propelled by a laterally swinging front wheel
In a gang lawn mower comprising a tractor having a front transverse row of mower units each pivotally connected to the tractor to be propelled thereby in front thereof peopelled each being free to swing laterally with respect thereto, and a rear transverse row of laterxlly units arranged to overlap the swaths of the front row when proceeding along a straight path of travel and also connected to be propelled by the tractor, -means operative upon a turning of the gang for moving the units of the front row laterally with respect to the tractor swingig in the direction of turn. Thus, the vehicle may be steered in a lateraloy direction by turning the steering wheel in that direction. In this manner, the wheeled vehicle tends to approximate the reaction of a water-born sailing vessel which is wind driven. In this regard, once disassembled, it should be able to be stored or transported in a convenient manner. No critical body movement is required to effect propulsion, other than such balancing as may be propelled by a laterally swinging front wheel when the handlebars are swung from side to side. Such a vehicle should be very stable under a variety of wind conditions, to prevent, or at least greatly reduce the risk of unexpectedly overturning the vehicle.
