Trailer minimum width for 60" mower?

Right now I have a JD180 42" rider and a 21" pusher on a 4'x8' trailer.

I hope to move up to a 60" ZRT. May or may not go with a bagging attachment. I think a 60" mower should fit on a 6' trailer but not sure if it had a bagger if there would still be enough clearance. And would a 7' trailer work out better or wasted space.

No such thing as wasted space on a trailer. For a 60" mower I would go 6.5' wide minimum. my open landscape trailer is 16'x6.5' I wish it was at least 20'x 7'. My enclosed is in 8.5' wide by 18' long.

Research how far out the impeller on the bagging unit will extend off the deck, add up, and see. I would rather work with actual numbers than guess. My guess is, your gonna want a 7' wide trailer. 2 extra feet for the side attachment. (Remember to allow several feet in back of your mower too, for the bagging mount)
