As most of you know, I bought a 48'' ferris wb. The question is I plan to expand this year by adding a 60'' ZTR would they both fit on 6x10 trailer ..?

My local dealer said, no problem ! I'd have at least a foot from the gate.
I see no point in buying a small trailer now to accommodate the ferris when later, I'll add the ZTR ...
Here's the sizes, I'm interested in ..6x10 or 6x12 single axle any advice is welcomed...Joe

It will be very close. I would go with the 6x12 if that is an option.

I think I would probably look at some 7' wide trailers. With a 6' trailer and a 60" mower that only leaves you 6 inches on each side.

I get a 52in stander and 36 quick on a 6x10. Tight but works out really well!

After seeing that pic a 6x10 is way to short, 6x12 definitely, nice equipment smcunningham appreciate the visual pic clears things up for me....Joe

Nothing smaller than a 6x12. When I bought my 6 x 12 enclosed I already knew it would be a tight fit for 2008. A bigger trailer than 6 x 12 will force me to buy a bigger vechicle and a whole list of other issues like vehicle debt which I don't want to service unless I have really healthy cash flow this year.

get the 6.5x12, thats the size trailer i have and i can barely get my 61" toro and my 36" toro wb on it, it fills it from front to back with about 3in to spare and my mowers are constanly bumping into each other and it has warn all the paint of both mowers its not good.

I had a 4x6 tilt last season. :laugh: Now I have a 6x12. I cant wait to shave 2-3 minutes off each yard from strapping/unstrapping, moving ramps, taking pin out. Its gonna be nice. :cool2:

I just got rid of my 6x10 and I will say no. With my 48" ztr I barely had room for a wheel barrell

So long as everything fits, a tight fit is not bad really. Keeps stuff from moving around, a little extra protection.

Tater, why do you need a wheelbarrow to go cutting lawns???:laugh:

6x10 are junk period....if you know for sure you are adding a 60" z this year, then you need to get a 16 footer for sure.

my first trailer was a 6x10 when all I had was a 36 wb. very soon after that, like 2 months, I got a 48 z, guess what with out turing a 36 sideways they would not fit...turning sideways is ghetto, if you can afford the mowers get a big enough trailer..

going to 16 feet was awesome, plenty of room...

keep in mind that the 48 wb and 60 z are probably each 6" long, thats 12" end to end, even with the 16 footer you will have a little extra room for debris or mulch or whatever....

definitely nothing smaller than a 6 x 12, i have a 6 x 10 and all that will fit on it is just my 60" lazer or my 52" and 48' mowers, me personally i bought a 8.5 x 16 and it works great!!!!
