Getting Wright Stander on/off Trailer

I just got a 36" wright stander the other day, and I have a open trailer, what is the easiest way to get it on and off , backwards or forward while loading or backwards or frontwards while unloading? My trailer is a 6 by 10. I am use to a walk behind machine.

I don't have a stander, my walk behind I take up backwards on days that I have the z on the trailer, days without the z I drive it up forwards. I imagine if you would take a couple of minutes and go try each direction several times you could figure it out pretty easy.

I would say go up forward and down backwards. Going up backwards seems scary on a stander

Up forward so you can take weight off front if at an angle where deck is going to catch.
Coming down backwards is the same theory, you can pull back on it to clear top of ramp if angle will cause deck to catch.
Good luck with the new machine.
The trailer thing is no big deal, after a few times you will be a pro.

I'm pretty sure it tells you not to back it down the ramp. However it is easier to get it on and off the trailer doing it this way. I back it up on the trailer and go foward off the trailer. I barely have enough room to fit it on the trailer with the ztr so that is my only option. If you have alot of room would drive it on forward and spin it around to drive off foward also.

I go both ways depending on what all I am carrying on the trailer, but loading it forward / unloading backwards is easier. But I use a RH so I don't have to worry about the deck catching either.

You should be able to drive on and turn around and drive off. I used to turn a 61" wright stander around in my 8' trailer. Other wise like other said. Drive on and back off.
