Do it all the time. My 32" lives in the back of my personal F-150. I got two houses that its faster to cut with my 32" than my 21" even with the drive time. (just around the corner). Stupid 7 by 16' trailer is to small with the new kubota -ZD28 mowers.

If you're not working in high-brow neighborhoods, I don't think most people worry about you using a trailer or just throwing it in the bed of your truck. If I'm just push mowing, string trimming and blowing, then I'd skip the trailer altogether too.

I ran out of the bed of my dakota to start with and I worked out of the bed of the f150 every now and then. I am not doing many big properties any more so a small trailer is fine. I'm saving a lot of time not driving really far to service bigger properties like I was doing last year.
