Life just got easier!

On Monday I bought my first zero turn.... A snapper pro S50XTB2536.. The 36" deck, 19hp Kawasaki sit on zero turn. I also ordered the mulch kit. The whole thing came to right at $5k.
Today I ordered a14' x 76" in. Pipe Top, Tandem Axle Landscape Trailer. I'm having it built with the heavier gauge iron mesh, pipe railings along the sides, the best of three decking options, new tires and brakes. It should be here midweek next week. The trailer came to $3100.
I think I got some good deals... What do you think?

Mower is pretty good, but the trailer seems high.

It would have been about $500+ less if not for the upgrades. I added brakes, opted for the heavier gauge steel, better hitch and pipe Top rails.... It also comes with a trimmer rack, gas can rack, water cooler rack and blower box.

I may be wrong, but I think the model number posted is for the Briggs powered model.
You had me curious, so I looked it up. I keep thinking a small ZTR may be in my future in a season, or two.

Congrats. Anything that makes life easier is a good thing!

I cut and paste the model number... I opted for the Kawasaki.. It was roughly $400 more than the B&S.. But it was an easy decision

Enjoy the new mower and trailer! I'd love to get a ZTR but for now it's just not worth it for me.
