For two 60inch mowers I would go with a bigger trailer then 6x12 and I would think about a dual axles. Just my thoughts.

I would look into getting something like a 7x16 that way you should have more front to back room to put walk behind mowers on with no probl..might be a little tight on the side to side tho. I'm not really sure if there is a 7 1/2wide trailer i know there's a 8x14 and 8x16 what is the length and width of the mowers?

I used to have a 6x12 with my 60" Lazer, and 36 WB and 21. It was pretty crowded, I couldn't fit my 60 and 48 riders on that trailer either. You could get a 6, 6.5 or 7x14 foot trailer that is either single axle or tandem. You can't get anything over 7 feet wide in most cases. There is a legal limit for the overall width of a trailer.

To get a trailer over 7 feet, it needs to be an enclosed, mine is 8 feet, you can always get 8.5 (which is the legal limit). The only open trailers that are over 7 feet are deckovers, where the deck is over top of the axles. There are custom trailers too where it is 7 feet between the axles and it extends before and after the axles to 8 or 8.5.

I would say a 7x14 for you sir, dual axle. Possibly a 7x16 if you want to expand or plan on running a bag unit on your rider.

I think weight would be your biggest issue...with a single axle that is...
