Wow, I dont see too many 12ft tandem axle trailers! It also depends alot on if its an angle steel or square tubing trailer. With the trimmer racks and mesh sides and gate, Id say around $1500. I thought a bit more than the others just because it has the trimmer racks and the mesh sides, and it is a tandem axle, most 6x12s are single axle. But it does depend on your area, look in your local tradin post and see what an similar trailer sells for.

I thought I would ask on here instead of calling dealers and wasting there time as I have no intuition in buying one new. I'm simply buying a competitor out and was just coming up with prices for his equipment. I was quoted close to 2000 +or- 200 bucks depending on the dealer + taxes which is 6.5%-7% depending on the county. Its a name brand trailer very well built mostly channel tubing and angle like any trailer I have ever seen. Going to a tubular frame would have heavier axles most likely from my experience. 6x12 is a good size here you can put 2 walk behinds and a 60 ztr rider or get two pallets of sod without any issues.

I would love to see how you can get two WBs and one ZTR on a 6x12 trailer!

And this guy says he can get 2 WBs and a ZTR on his 6x12. Unless he has the front Wb with the deck up on the front trailer rail, but even doing that, I dont see how its possible.

well i guess if you put two 36" wb and a 60" ztr all sideways you could fit them but you would have a weight distribution problem and not only that it would be tough getting all of those sideways on there

BTW I can still put a Toro 52 in place of the Lesco but to be really technical I had the 2 Wrights the lesco and a 21 toro personal pace on that trailer before with no problem and its still under weight.

Damn, Im eating my words!! I could barely get my Ferris DD and my exmark TT on my 12ft! BUt I noticed your standers kind of stack together like shopping carts, that would make more room, but my WBs are huge and long,and do not stack together that well! I wish I could get all my stuff on a 12ft, I would get rid of my 16ft in a heartbeat for better gas mpg!! Thanks for the PM!

The wrights still have a couple of inches in between them. You have to remember almost every 6x12 trailer is actually 6ft 4 inches wide because of the standard axle size. If you go to a enclosed trailer you lose the 4 inches in the walls and leaves you exactly 6 ft inside. Also, I have a 36 toro proline hydro with a velke and I can only take that machine with the lesco I could put a 21 on there but your right the walk behinds are bigger than the standers.

Hear ya go homie, http://hammerdowntrailers.com/utility.htm

I think the prices of the 6x12 started at $1000, I got the 16 for $1500, but that was last .

Oh and i don't know whats up with the pics but they all come with mesh sides.
