Really looking for a trailer...what do you guys think of this? I run a 32 wb a 52 wb and a 46 zero turn...would this be good enough?

Thanks!

Suonds like it may be a little tight for all your equipment.

As long as I can fit 2 of the mowers an a bunnch of green barrels I should be set. I've just never bought a trailer before so im not sure if price is right he wants a grand..or anything wrong/seems wrong with the trailer

Well I will tell you that here a good 7x16 tandem axle trailer can be bought for that kind of money if you look hard enough. We only paid $600 for one that needed a new floor which cost us $140. I think he is asking too much, but your area may be different. Look around and see what everything else in the same category is going for.

Yeah, it's about same price as most others that size. I'm only looking for single axle and 6x12, not looking for anything too big

The width is the most important thing in my opinion. it sucks climbing over mowers to get one thing.

I have a 7x12 that I put a 48" walk behind, 21" mower, blower, weed eater and edger on. Seems like I always have to unload everything just to get to the walk behind. It is fine for hauling my quads but not really efficient for work. You can purchase a new trailer that size at Home Depot/Lowes for a couple hundred $ more.

My trailer is a 6'4" (inside) X 14' (inside).

NO WAY I could get two ZTR's on it. I can't get my ZTR and my ATV on it (neither will fit, sideways). I do carry a 36"WB a 21" and the ZTR, easily, though.

My ZTR is 80" (pretty sure). 80+36+52= 168/12= 14'.

52+36+52= 140"/12= 11'8"+

Whatcha think?

Since this has got the two gates, i think it will work out good with the 32 wb or the 46 rider comming off, rather than unloading everything

Haha, i don't understand the math there...

I was giving you some more realistic numbers.

But, even using the exact numbers you have, it leaves you 10" (if you assume the trailer is 12' - inside).

How long is your ZTR? And, is the trailer 6' - inside dim.?

It's a residential zero turn, smaller kind of. The 52 snapper and 32 exmaek are commercial...not sure how long, but if i could atleast fit the zero, a wb, 21 and a couple green grass barels and i'd be happy haha

Another real quick question...i have the option of getting other 6x12 trailers, but without the side gate. For those of you who have got a trailer with a side gate, is it worth getting it? Or just stick with the back gate only?

And do any of you guys have a toolbox on the trailer, do you think I should look into that too? Thanks
