Dump Trailer For HAULING Zero Turn Mowers

Thinking Of Purchasing A Gooseneck Dump Trailer, How Well Do They Do Has For Hauling Equipment Around. Trying To Have Something That Can Pull Double Duty.

I have seen people put many excavators inside of them. Why would you carry a ztr on a gooseneck. How many ztrs? Need more info on why you need double duty.

I Have Been Needing A Dump Trailer For Many Different Things, But I Would Like To Be Able To Haul Equipment Also So It Is Not Just Setting In The Yard Waiting For A Load Of Dirt. And Why I Need A Goose Neck Is Because When I Do Haul Dirt Or Cut Up Trees It Is Alot Of Wieght. And Iam Travling Across State Not Down The Block.

Like I Said Earlier Double Duty. The Zero Turns I Am Concern With Because Of Driving Them Up The Ramps.

Thanks For Replying

You need to make sure that it has a drop gate in the rear that will allow the loading of a ztr. But pperonally I would just buy a smaller trailer to haul mowers on. It would save on gas a lot. But I am sure it would work. Good luck

It would work. But as others have stated. The fuel mileage will kill you. If you buy a decent dump, it will be heavy.

Sure. We haul skidloaders, and mowers in ours. Mowers just on the days we bag, and it sure makes dumping clippings easy. It's one of the best investments we've made, it gets used everyday.
