German term or phrase: Drehen auf der Stelle
i unfortunately have very little context for this. it´s an excel document with german in one column and i´ve got to fill in the english. it deals with some sort of large cleaning machine, possibly a streetcleaner. "versatzmodus drehen auf der stelle" is the full text in the blank.
