    What are some thoughts on a 24' enclosed trailer. Who like and dislikes the size. Does it help or hinder? Thanks

    I just bought a 8 by 20. I think its the biggest id ever go for a residential/commercial op. Maybe bigger if I did all large commercial with WAM's and such.

    Cheers

    24' is a pretty good sized trailer. If you are doing residential and commercial I think it is a little big. In many of the areas that I mow in I wouldn't go over 20' for a trailer. Other areas in my area would only allow about a 12' trailer to fit without blocking driveways. If you are mowing in areas that would allow the 24' to fit then you should be okay. As for me I think that that size of a trailer is just too large and not manuverable enough, especially if you get in some tight spots.

    With 24' you could probly fit 3 60'' z's and a few walkbehinds and still have room for equipment + wall space. If I was to buy a new enclosed I would get the extended tongue, too.

    Yea my dad got a 24' haulmark and we can fit 2 ztr's + ultravacs, and 1 wb and still have room for a push mower and a gangbox up from. in addition to all the racks.and we added a extra foot to the tounge, so the sides wont hit the dump.
