I fit 2 exmark 60's and a 36 walk behind in my 20' trailer with a little room for a spare tire misc. tools and stuff...

They say to find the size u need just get some sidewalk chalk and draw it out 8.5 by_____. It won't be exact but definitely close.

Mine is a 7-8 x 20-22 give or take. I fit 1 61 ztr a 52 ztr with bager a 36 or 48 walkbehind and a 20 inch push mower. 3 blowers 3 weed weed wakers.

My question is why.a 60 and a 52. Do you have a helper? Get rid of the 52 get a 36 hydro with jungle whees And keep the 20". That way you can get a 18 foot trailer and save a grand.
With the set up you have you will need a 20 footer for sure and you will have lots of wasted space. Don't forget the bigger the trailer the harder it is to get parking.

Right now it's me and my step dad being not able to drive yet I'm still inn school and next year I'd just like to target comercial properties but that's just my goal and I purchased the 60 and 52 as a package deal from a Lawnsite member who sold out and had about 10 of them

8.5x20. Buy one and you will be good for a while. No regrets cause theres no extra room to walk around inside. Easy to maneuver and park. Get 5200# axles, decent radial tires on torsion axles and you wont have to worry about tire wear that other folks on here always complain about. Forget about walkbehinds. If you have a grandstand, you probably already know its as productive as 2 48" walkbehinds would be, and takes up less space. JMO

8.5 x 20 should give you enough length and have a lil left. I wouldn't want much smaller for that amount of equipment.
