I currently own a 61" STHM Scag (3 wheel) that is about 9ft long. I'm about to buy a 61" turf tiger. Rather than having to buy a 16ft trailer to accommodate both machines, I was hoping that I could get away with buying a 14ft trailer. Does anybody know if I can make this work?

Well if you have a V Nose that might buy you a little more. Its pretty simple get the specs on both and add, leave a few inches for slop.

How high are the walls of your trailer? Have seen guys put the deck of the sthm on top of the front rail to get a bit more space for the rear mower. Otherwise, I think it will be tough.

Get the dimensions of the machines.

Mark out 14' L x X' W on your drive way or garage floor. And see if the stuff fits. Remember to see it the equipment handles can hang over the trailer sides if that will help to fit everything.

Why not just get the 16' to be sure?

My thoughts exactly. There is little price difference!:wall
