Wow that is awesome. I know I sold my wright stander because the small tires were beyond tearing up my yards, but your machine won't have that problem. So did this one mower replace your two tbars?

pretty much it did. We still have them but it looks like we'll be using the 36 mostly unless it doesn't fit. so far only one house i could fit in.

Hey moondragon, thread and work look great. I commented awhile back but i wanted to ask. How do you get your mowers off with the heavy duty skid style ramp with nothing in between.

I have seen all your pictures and havent seen anything connecting them and was interested.

thanks,

Jason

if i'm not mistaken DlongLandscaping look at pg 2 in this thread and you'll see the mesh on the ramps. the ramps slide in and out so the width is just fine for the mowers. i'll be getting a new gate made for the mowers bc those ramps are heavy to be picking up after a long day of work they've been great but a double ramp gate would be better, the mesh was just a temporary solution until we needed real gate,

i looked and still doesnt answer my questions. The mesh looks to be just on the 12" section. Your trailer looks to be around 84" wide with two 12" gates on either side for a big tractor or skid. Is there anything connection the two 12" gates on either side. How do you manage to get a 32" mower off and on with it only being able to go one wheel on the ramp.

Do you get what i am saying? maybe i am not seeing something but if both ramps are down on either side, there is 60" in the middle with nothing there?

Let me know, im just curious, no trying to pick at ya.

Hey no prob I didn't explained it that well either. The ramps move in and out in that first pic of the ramps on the second page u can see a rod at the bottom
In which the ramps slide back and forth. They get close enough to where we can take our 32" wb w/o problem. We're getting a new gate to where it's a traditional gate like in most trailers bc these ramps are real heavy
Hope this helped if not let me know I could take a pic for you so u can see it better.
