Swivel wheel shuffle

3 in 1 yard machine 21 inch self propelledSince the start of the summer I've been trying to figure out how I can install larger, front swivel wheels on our Craftsman mower.

I found this Yard Machine yesterday for 25 bucks that might just fit the bill once I fix the left wheel.

The swivel action is said to make manuvering around corners easy and fun.

That is a very good idea I had not considered. We've got an old wheelchair in the barn that might do the trick, but I found some even beefier swivel wheels that are also pnematic at Harbor Freight for 14 bucks.
