Trying to figure out a configuration
So i can either get 3 or 4 mowers going to job sites.

Got 2 Scag 61 mowers
and 1 Gravely 48 and an Exmark 48"

Was thinking about an 18" Gooseneck trailer 6.5 wide

You can probably find the answer to that by parking your mowers in a likely configuration and then measuring the area they take up. You should probably try a few different arrangements (and remember to allow a little extra room).

Definitly go for a 20'+ trailer. Give you some room to move around. Look for a gooseneck lowprofile equipment trailer and get the a reinforced ramp/gate combo.

You will need at least a 25' trailer. Better have at least a 1 ton truck to pull that much weight as well.

Why not buy a tractor/trailer? They make them 50ft long. That will for sure hold all of them.

I have 22 ft x 84'' flat bed and can only get 3 60'' side ways on the trailer could be room for 48''small mower
But if I pull them on long ways Then the 22' only holds 3 mowers no space left
Most mowers are longer then they are wide

My enclosed is 24. I have 3 60 inch Zs and a walkbehind. I bet I could fit a 4th Z in there if I took out the walkbehind.

My 24' enclosed can fit my front mount 72" and our 2-60" Z's.......but just barely. To also fit my 54" stander I would need a 28' maybe even a 30'. Better go with a 28' for 4- 60" zero turns.

If you can swing it get an enclosed right off the bat. A lot of it will have to do with how the ztrs front cater arms are set up. My Gravely are short and the Hustler SZs are long. Oddly the Hustlers stack better than the Gravely because they straddle the rear end of the mower in front. I now am running a 20' open car hauler and have two ztrs, one hydro walk behind, and a push mower comfortably. This also allows just enough room for a rear bagger on one of the ztrs. Keep other options in mind as well like bagger, thatch rake, front mount aerator,spreader, sprayer attachments if you have or consider getting any.

Here's a nice open one. I know it's too far away for you though.

I use a 20' by 6'10" Holmes trailer and can put 2 exmark 60" w/ baggers and a exmark 60" w/o bagger on it and still manage to put a 26" push mower on there

This thread is what I needed to read. I currently have a 7 x 16 enclosed and it's a pain to fit everything I have. Looking to purchase two aerators next year and am not sure how this is going to work for having everything with me.

As far as a reply for the person seeking information, always plan for expansion. Buying bigger than what you need is going to save you down the road. I estimated a 8.5 x 24 foot enclosed trailer. I also included building a small work bench at the noise of the trailer. At that width I'm sure you could turn all the mowers without baggers sideways, if that option saves on space.

My question is how many guys you have in one truck? I run crew cab fords, and we still can only get 5, and that is real close. Unless you are not trimming or blowing pavement, why do you need all 4 ztrs on one rig? I think also you need to consider the areas that you have to get that trailer into. We run 7 x 18 bumper pulls, and it gets fairly tight in some areas. Sometimes miss the old 6 x 12s we used to run
