    Will a 48" hydro walk behind fit in an s10 pickup. If so any tips on getting it in there would be appreciated

    I dont think it will.... to big.. bigest I can fit in my cannon is about 40 inches because of the wheel wells... measure it to be sure though... check out the quick 36 mower if your in the market for a new machine.

    I think a 5x8 or 10ft trailer would be your best/safest choice.

    only thing i can say is try backing it up with the front forward with the tailgate down... saw it done last summer a lot in ct best of luck with it...

    Just go and buy a small trailer. It will be much safer that way. You are going to run into trouble if not. JMO:nono:

    Also, I think a hydro would be a bit unstable on ramps.

    You all are probably right. No sense in dropping a new mower, ill just start looking for a small trailer
