What length enclosed do I need?

I need an enclosed big enough to haul a 60" z a 52" z and a 32" wb. I was thinking 8.5x18? Everything fits on my 16ft open, but it's pretty tight fit.

I have a 16' with a v-nose. Can fit a toro 52" z with bagger and toro 36" wb with about 2' extra and then the nose; Little tight of a fit for me though seeing how I keep a few other items in the front.

Biggest problem I have as far as space is I didn't get it wide enough. I think mines like 6' wide inside so I can't turn the wb to fit better.

If its you driving, go bigger than you need. 8' x 20' sounds good. You can grow into that as well. With our employees driving, we try to get our enclosed's as small as possible for maneuvering reasons and the fact that each crew always has the same equipment. So that 16 ft you were talking about is what we would use. Because we know everything fits, even if it's a little tight.

We bag pretty much everything. Can't put all the equipment into a box truck and then put a dump truck full of grass in there too. We used the enclosed trailers for advertising, storage, security, and functionality. Different strokes for different folks.

If your box truck breaks down your out of work if my truck goose down i hook up to another truck and I'm right back to work. Box trucks are for some people we bag all of our yards so it wouldn't fit our needs.
