German term or phrase: fünffüßiges Bremsen
Bremswirkung zu abrupt, kein fünffüßiges Bremsen möglich.
Again, this is talking about a tractor. I can only find 'iambic' for 'fünffüßiges' in the sense of iambic pentameter. Any ideas?

Explanation:
I suspect this may be a misspelling (or difficult-to-read handwritten version) of feinfühliges Bremsen
