Thought singles or narrow fronts could amost turn very tight circle?? They do on the BIG tractors. Seems there would not be any stops to hit with the hardware, so what seems to keep it from turning sharp? IF it just pushes the wheels and not really turn, might just be a weight problem? or wrong tires?

I turn sharper to the right then left. Weight shouldn't be the problem because I don't have a engine in the tractor yet. Maybe I'll take my cub cadet129 out and compare the two.

Ps I know big narrow front tractors turn sharp we've owned a few on our farm. 66 Oliver 2-770 Oliver's. Farmall h 656

You should be able to get it pretty sharp, would definitely depend on the geometry on the steering, tie rods, length of arm at the post, etc.
