    Why not get a 6x12?

    Get out a tape measure and figure it out yourself.

    Not trying to be rude, but that's the only way you'll get a definite answer.

    And check into used trailers, I got a 16' that needs a little work for $500. There are deals out there.

    i have a 48'' bobcat and i could probably fit 2 on my 10ft trailer if i put them on backwards so the controls are not hanging where the gate needs to be. get a 6X12 just to be safe. youll grow into it quick

    Here's what I do, find a flat floor and take a chalk line and tape measure and make a rectangle on the floor. Do it the same size as the trailers your looking at. Next park your two mowers in the space and see how the stuff fits.

    the tighter the better. If my stuff slides around it usually breaks something. I use to fit a Ramsomes 48 belt driven a scag 48 belt driven and a 21 turned sideways. 5 x 10
