I like to pressure wash the trailer once a week and the equipment gets blown off twice a day. Looks halfway clean and keeps repairs down.

I concur that you are most likely not over by much. With my 48 and 36 Z ...all the extras your carry I was over a little for my 3500 lb axle . My main issues was the thought of DOT ,others safety and that the axle kept bending and having to be replaced

I kept my single axle but upgraded and had a custom trailer built with a 5200 lb axle..cause to be honest I do not want to pull all that weight for what is essentially lawn trailers. I like to keep things light and mobile and with as little axles as possible because a axle = more weight which is equal to more gas and of course each axle is more tolls and tires as well. My sod work is subbed out so honestly 99.5% of the time with my equipment all thrown on there...I am not even close to being overweight now.

Look at greentouch trimmer racks then...get the engine support kit while purchasing. Everything is held nice and tight. I think I have photos of my most recent trailer on this thread to see them or review in my photo thread. They stay right where you put them..no spin
