I think I am going to get a new trailer. So far it will be an Open 16 x 6.5, 2' mesh sides, Tandem w/brakes on both, a cage on the front and gate on the drivers side. I will order Xtreme racks for shaft equipment as soon as they are available. I also will have the rear gate reinforced and maybe extended to 5'.

Have I missed anything? Please post pics of your 16' or 14' opens and talk about what works and does not.

Thanks! JT

Thanks jrc lawncare!

I like the ramps on the back gate. I guess the cage opens to the trailer side, most I have seen open to the front. its nice having the tubes there.

How much clearance do you have under the box from the deck?

Thanks, JT

When you say "a gate on the drivers side", do you mean a side (second) gate? If so, that would have you loading/unload into traffic. Side gate should be on the passenger side.

I have a 14' open with 2 foot sides, but they are solid steel. Works good for hauling mulch and doing clean ups.

I think about 2' or 30'', enough to sneak a 21'' under if necessary.....

Yes Ron, a second gate.

We thought about the traffic thing. But it really isn't an issue. We won't use the gate that much and most stops are in fields and parking lots. If we are on the street its a sub division with a car passing every hour or two. I still could drop it and take a WB off and put the gate back in a minute or so. The curb side needs the trimmer and blower racks . They will get used at every stop. It would be more of a hazard for us having them on the traffic side. If that makes sense. The only reason I was considering the second gate was it was only $150 - $200 more. I figured no big deal and it may be useful from time to time.

But that's why I posted this . So everyone could make me rethink things.

Thanks, JT

Humm... 30" I think would clear the deck pedal on my ZTR. I will have to add PVC to the cage for sure.

Thanks, JT

That's the trailer.

I would want to add 2' mesh sides and of course move the gate to the other side. :laugh:

Thanks, JT I set the cage back enough so when you drop the rakes, shovels, etc in the pipes, they drop on the trailer floor. Cage is handy......:)

That's really cool. My grandfather said he wants a ramp on the front of his equipment trailer so he can haul a lawn mower in the bed of his stake-side truck and a compact tractor on the trailer.

Is that truck a 6.2 diesel?
