Get the largest one or the one that will fit the type mowers you will need in the future as your business grows. I would err on the large side. With a larger trailer you have an option but if you get one too small it may limit your equipment choices. The 6x14 looks good unless you actually need the side gate. I would probably only go 7" wide if you ever think you may get a 72" ZTR.

Stay away from the trailer from TSC - Great company but poor quality in trailers - not HEAVY enough........:usflag:

We got a variety of trailers here. I opt for the 6x12 as its not to big to manuver (or eat too much more gas) but large enough to hold a wb and a ztr.

had tp extend the gate then it was flippin heavy so we added a gorilla lift and hardened pins along with preco trimmer racks and a water cooler rack. Works great but if you plan to grow I would go with 14 ft.

Get a tandem axle; so you can haul a respectable load of mulch, topsoil, stone, etc.

yea i would get something with tandem axels as well, i was on my way to Lowe's this past monday to buy a 7x14 with rear and side gates for 1498 with a single axel, but i decided to call around first, i ended up with a 7x14 with tandem axel and brakes for 1520 so it was worth shopping around.
