I am thinking of purchasing a 48" walkbehind. Right now I have 2 36's that fit nicely between the fender wells. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fit a 48" and a 36" side by side? From plywood to plywood it is 90" inches and from fender to fender it is 77". Am I missing something obvious on how to get 3 mowers in a trailer?

48'' and 36'' is 84''. You should fit. What else is going in there? You can't back them both out past the wheel wells at the same time (not that you would anyways) obviously but you can still fit them.

Or...if you are keeping both the 36'' then just move them up, you have plenty of room thats a huge trailer.

If you can fit to 36"'s next to each other move them forward a bit and put the 48 behind them?

You can frobably even turn the 48 sideways if it makes it any shorter....

My trailer is 8 feet wide. Not sure of the actual inside deminsions. At the front I drive straight in my 36". Then I back in my 52" on the opisite side and go back as much as possiable. Then my 21" goes behind the 36". Then my 60 goes in last. If I could I'd post a pic. The 36" and 52" are as close to being side by side as possiable and infront of the wheel wells. But if I need the 36" everything has to come off. Hate that part. I was thinking about putting a ramp out the side door just for the 36".

I have a 52" Z at the back of the trailer. I am getting rid of a 36" and replacing it with a 48". I would like to not have to pull 2 mowers off to get the front mower out. The trailer is 20' but I am using the front 6' for a work area and to have space to get in and out without walking over mowers.

Do you think a 48 walkbehind will save you alot of time over the 36? I ask because your trailer is going to have alot of wasted space as you will not be able to get those machines side by side in the wheel wells, or infront of them due to the step indention. It would seem like you have alot of weight in the rear of the trailer as it is. Maybe if you purchased a 36" stander to replace a regular 36", you would be faster, and still be able to get both machines side by side. Just some thoughts, because you are going to have mowers stacked front to back with the 21 up front. You will loose your walking space at your door.

Good luck

I've looked at the standers, but I don't have a good dealer around here that sells them. If gravely,exmark, or toro made a stander I would seriously consider buying one.

Get a new trailer! The Wright Stander rep was at our place last week. I told him I was happy w/ our line up of mowers.

Sell your street bike and get a new trailer with the cash. Then save up for a real bike: Ducati or Honda.

I like my trailer.......A real bike is a honda or a ducati huh? What brings you to that conclusion?? :rolleyes: Bring your bike down to Texas and see what this old R1 is about. :D

It's not a money thing, because I know they will fit on there just not the way I would like them. I would have to build a ramp over the fenderwells then I would loose a foot of headroom. So I'm demoing a new 44" gravely walkbehind which fits in there nicely.

haha, nah I'm just playin with ya. I personally have Honda dirtbikes and quads I'm only 15 but the LCO that does my neighbors lawn has a GSX-R1000 with a bunch of stuff on it (cams, exhaust, port + polished) and one sunday he stopped down at my house with it and let me take it around the block. All I can say is INSANE. I was a little nervous turning because its alot different and heavier then my dirtbike, I only got to like 5 grand in 2nd gear and I was haulin. If I punched it I knew I would go over, it wasn't a great bike for my first ride

That is the only experience I've ever had with a street bike and my parents don't know about it or they would kill me.

And for the trailer, you can fit them up front so that is what I would do, you will just have to manuver them a bit past the wheel wells.

I was just messing with ya. I like hondas actually if I purchase another bike it would be a crb1000rr. I just don't ever ride anymore so I don't see the point in buying another one. My R1 cost me about $200 a year between insurance and registration so for that cheap it can just sit in the garage for those 4 times a year I want to ride it. It's already depreciated all that it's going to so there's no use in selling it until I get my other toy.

If you have an 8 footer....you can drive the 36" straight in. I hope your 48" is hydro, if so back it in and it'll fit nicely. We do that it it works well. Also helps if you have an electric start, no need to mess w/ a pull cord inside the trailer.
