I am almost 14 now, and I am getting money for a trailer for my b-day, I will nolonger have to load the 21s and handhelds in my moms van:dizzy:. We are having a hitch installed soon:). I have 4 accounts that we drive to any were from .15 of a acre to half of a acer, 2 of them are on the same street the other 2 are not. Is a 5 by 8 big enough to haul a 48,32,and 21, or should I get something bigger, and is it a good idea to buy it off craigslist.
Thanks,
Ryan

My 48 and 32 are both walkbehinds, I walk to the job site, but word of mouth has gotten out about me, and I have work in 3 diffrient neighborhoods, plus I will mow for family, so I need a trailer. I know I sound young for work, but it is what I like, my busnises is my passion

set them up on the driveway and take a tape measure and figure out the way you want to place them on the trailer then measure the space they take up

You sound exactly like I was at 14...... Now im a crumpy old man. This business was also my passion when i was a kid. Once this business starting paying my mortgage and all my bills I lost my passion. Now its a job!

I would say go with a 6x10 or 6x12 to give you the most room. That way there you cold have it for a few years if the biz stays the same size. That is a popular size to reselling it would be no problem either. good luck. Put pics on once you get it.

Look around and you'll find something good. I just bought a 6.5x16' tandem axle open trailer with trimmer racks, blower rack, and toolbox for $500. It is a fixer upper, but I don't need it for a while, so I can work on it and pay for repairs over the next few months.

I tried this once more, and can not fit every thing 32 21 48 hand helds, gas cans so I am getting a 5 x 8 or 6 x 10 either way I am just about the same

i think a 5x8 is too small for all 3 mowers. make sre you measure the handle bars because the dect may fit but those can hang over and you wont be able to put the gate up. unless you plann on putting the mowers on backwards
