Much easier and quicker to hinge the discharge end of the deck..
Come to think of it the axle might not be wide enough. you could always remove the sides for the length of the mower and keep the big mower at the back. the gate woudl not really need widened only on the bottom or top where it latches to the trailer. your wheels need to be on the gate, not the width of the deck.
just an idea. for a time i pulled my mower on a flat bed till i got a wider trailer.
