I've got a 6x10 trailer that i run. Unless you only have one machine, get something bigger!

I just bought my Gravely 260Z and it takes up almost the hole trailer by itself. i still manage to get a 50" WB in front of it, half hanging over teh tongue though. I'll see if i can get a picture of it tomorrow.

btw, you can just squeeze a 48" scag wb + 50 gravely WB on a 6x10. both with velkes

To get 48" and 38" on we put the 48 in straight and 21 next to that and the 38" behind 48".... it is packed in there like that

Here is how our 6x12 trailer is setup...

60" ZTR on back
36" WB and 21" Pusher towards front

ZTR & WB are held down using Fastraps, Push mower held by jungle boot.

Stihl stick edger, Stihl trimmer, & Deere trimmer on trimmer trap.

2 Deere BP blowers on Green Touch BPB racks above fenders.

2 Lesco BP sprayers on front sides using Jungle Spracks.

Tongue box with tools & parts.

Stihl hedge trimmer and Stihl handheld blower on floor along with 5 gal gas can and 2.5 gal mix.


Trailer also has electric brakes and carries a spare on the side.


By the way, the area in the background of this picture is not maintained by us (it looks terrible, clippings in beds, not edged often enough, and they turn around on the property we maintain and leave scalp marks and scuffs).

GLS,
I must say I'm "green" with envy...that looks like a great setup. I was just wondering on your GS30 WB, how deep is your mower deck? I'm running a 38" JD WB too (about a 1994, yellow mower deck) and it seems to be a really shallow design. I often have to double cut with my gators. Still does a good job though...SUPER nice rig!!

Thanks Jeff. I think the deck is about 4.5" deep. I've never used one of the old yellow decks, but the new type seems a lot better. Mine seems to cut great, very happy with it.
