I agree if it's a ztr but if he was to use ramps for a walk behind it would work out good. Someone on here does it this way. He seemed to think it worked well.

I had the same problem getting a Scag TT(61"), Scag STT(72"), and a 36" WB on a 16' trailer. Luckily I have a removable headache rack on my trailer so I took it off. I then ran my 72" STT onto the trailer backwards and hung the diesel engine(2.5+' hangover) over the tongue of the trailer. Then I turned the WB sideways and pulled the TT up on the trailer backwards which hung over the WB a little. I avoided buying a $5200 22' trailer-hauled this setup all summer with my Dodge 1500. It was a chunk but it worked!!!!!!

Walk behinds are one thing. Occasionally we use aluminum ramps to put a walk behind in a truck when we are super busy. I don't think I would ever do it with a ZTR. They are way to heavy.

See if you can find someone to build a rack like a car transport trailer so maybe you could have a mower above the others. Not sure if it can be done but an idea.

consider this add 6' to the over all length then simply move the front axle to be behind the original rear axle. then you get the length and your axles will be in the right place.

I got a pj 22ft trailer I would sell. 9900lb rated, side gate, 2ft dove tail, tie down bars along the trailer pockets, ordered july of 2009, spare tire, for around $3k. The front rail is removable if need be (if this is needed I would leave it but notch the rail or weld the center section lower. But I'm pretty sure with the overall length of your mowers the overlap (front wheels can overlap each over or the rear can fit between the wheels). Pm if you want more info.
