German to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Medical (general) / mobility scooter
German term or phrase:Rangierkreis
From the technical data in a brochure for a mobility scooter:
"Gesamtlänge 148 cm
Maximale Breite über Räder 69 cm
Minimaler *Rangierkreis* 165 cm
Wendekreis 320 cm"
Is this referring to the room needed to manoeuvre the scooter in and out of e.g. a garage, as opposed to the turning circle? But if so, isn't 165 cm rather small? (Local councils require 7 m manoeuvring circle for carports etc...)
