Heres a video from roading my "new" DW-21 homw last summer. This is a very short lost footage version. Video I meant to post is in the post directly below.

Reason for edit: wrong video.

Right at the end when I was turning into my driveway I was in 5th gear and rolling fairly along and it wouldn't turn sharp enough which caused me to brake quite hard. I had forgotten about the "cowboy" safety that limits the amount of steering when above 3rd gear. Had to almost stop and shift down to turn.
