My z turn is about 6'
I use a JD 727A for the cyclone rake which is 75" or 6' 3" long. Most of the time I put it on a 16' dual axle trailer, but I do have a 12' which I use as well and it doesn't fit on all the way with the unit connected. It does if you don't have a ramp(s) that fold up like we typically see. The cyclone rake would stick out a little bit off the end of the trailer but not enough to be concerned about. What I do is take the engine off, which is easy, and slide the front end of the cyclone rake underneath the back of the mower. I leave it folded down when traveling because I don't want the wind to do any damage. If it's full of leaves then it's okay to leave up. Cylone rake allows you return the unit at full refund if you don't like it, so it might not hurt to see anyways if you are unsure.
