Alright, so as of right now, i need a trailer that my Craftsman rider mower can pull. I don't need it to be huge, but it's gotta be able to fit my Toro walk-behind mower and a weedwacker on it, and maybe one or two gas containers. Any suggestions?

This is the exact one I use. You add plywood floor and wood sides. Perfect for my needs as of now. About $300 for all supplies needed.

how much money are you looking to spend? i used a garden cart that i transformed into a trailer, then a john deere cart, then a 4x6 trailer, and now im at a 5x8 trailer...but i tow it with my golf cart...my john deere la135 towed the 4x6 trailer fine when i was lifting my cart..

Thanks for the replies. I'm thinking about starting out with a 10 ft. PreciseFit dump cart that i've found at Lowe's for $110. I definitely think that after a few lawns, it'll pay for itself.

I think that's enough space for my push mower, but i can't invest in anything bigger until i know i have a steady income, well, at least a bigger one, from my business.

thats perfect for what you need..i have a jd dump cart that fits my 21" mower, i made custom trimmer racks for $20, holds my gas cans, a trash can, and my blower and hand tools.

it comes in handy for mud, soil, mulch, grass clippings, etc.
