Left and right brakes help make turns in sand and snow. Left turn, left brake. Puts more power to the right wheel. Opposite for right turns. I can make a tight turn either direction using the brake pedals and hold the steering wheel straight.
Proper use if brakes also help with traction in mud and snow. If one wheel slips lightly use that brake to put power to the non-slipping wheel. It is an acquired feel from years doing it.
I did get stuck in sand once, just going straight. I was pulling a cultipacker with our '51 8N. It was so dusty I could not see the radiator cap. Sand had piled up in front of the cultipacker and did not realize I was not moving forward, just digging holes with the wheels.
