You don't need a trailer for just a little push mower. You should be able to just lift into the bed of your pickup...or just buy/build a set of ramps for around 150 bucks.

I used a little 4 x 6 utility trailer purchased from Tractor Supply Co. (TSC) for $395. I hauled two mowers, trimmers, edger, hand tools, and gas. It was great for a small start-up business.
