Does anyone here transport a 48" or larger in a 5 X 10?? Does anyone carry more than one 36" or above mower at a time? I am asking this because I am debating if my 5 X 10 will be large enough to grow with my business for awhile.

Im researching the same thing and it apprears if your going with a 36 and 48 combo your SOL. I think going 5x12 would be good

I transport 1) 48" at a time, on a 5X8 when I'm towing with my Nissan Frontier. Works great for a solo person.

(will be alot better with the trailor I got today.............Very happy Imograss...Thanks)

I transport a 52" on a 5x10 trailer, plus a snapper rider(turning it sideways. Not a problem. I can keep all my equipment on the trailer and it fits in my garage.

I have a 52 and 36 walk behind on my 10 foot trailer. It fits but I would deffinetly go with the 12 or bigger.

I think 2 mowers would be a little crowded, I have a 6.5x12 and I have room for 2 mowers an edger and my lawn boy push mower

Try to get a 6' by 10', it works better at same time not overhanging you garage. Loading a 52" and parking a 36" across it. The 52" can manuver out easier on 6' than on a 5' width trailer. I tried one time a 52" Lazer on a 5 by 10 and the width slow you down, had to tip toe trying not to scratch the deck off the side rail. The 6' width is the perfect for 2 mowers, you can custommade them anyway.

I have a 6X10 that I use to haul a 36" and a 21". I have LOTS of room to spare. I'm sure I could get another larger W/B on there if I turned the 36" sideways.

i have a 5'x10' trailer and i haul around a 52" Ferris and a 36" Ferris at the same time and it is a very tight squeeze. i have to back the 52" on first then back the 36" on because that is the only way it will fit. there is plenty of width to the trailer but it is too short.

2 recomendations:
a.) get a longer trailer if you can afford it. preferably a 5x12 that will give you room for more mowers. (growth potential)
b.) the 5x10" that i have is tricky to back up. the shorter wheel base makes the trailer very sensitive to the changes in direction.

i have used both a 5x10 and a 5x12 and the longer trailer holds more and is easier to back up.

Thats good to know that it is possible to fit two mowers on the 5 X 10, but I have no problems backing mine up....I am used to it
I guess....I may look into a 14 footer soon. Trying to avoid tight squeezes later on.

I have a 5 x 10 and I can fit a 32" w/b and two 21" mowers and have room to spare.

If you already have a 5x10 why not used it till you out grow it? Stepping up to a 6x10 dosen't seem like it would be worth the money!Save you money till you ca at least step up to a 6x12.I started with a 6.5x10 had enough room of a zero turn, two push mowers, trimmer rack and a tool rack on the front side,hope this helps!

I have a 5x10 and can get my 52" ZTR, a 33" walkbehind and 21" push all on it. It's tight but if I have to do I will.

i can fit my 36 and 48 on my 5x10 but i have no room for my 21s so i throw em in back of the bed.
