well.... no offense, but I don't think the ranger will do much more than something like a 5x10 open trailer without putting a lot of unneeded stress on the brakes, rotors, transmission.... but that's just my opinion.

A 5x10 you should easily get a 36" and couple 21" mowers and put a trimmer rack and basket on the front for gas cans.

No offense taken, I'm more than thankful for the advice.

the reason I say 5' wide instead of 6' wide is because of the narrower width of the ranger, around here the roads are very curvy and it's easy to drop a trailer off the shoulder into a ditch... if you're pulling a trailer that could be wider than your vehicle that's something else you have to always take into account, the truck might be on the road, but the trailer falls off, busts a tire, spills your load.....
