    The tires are wide on the rider. The trailer is just for now.

    It's an open trailer and exmark site said its 64.8 inches wide with the deflector down, I can put the deflector up but the tires are huge on this mower.

    The tires shouldn't stick out past the deck on the 52. My 6x12 will handle my Scag with a 61" deck along with the Quick 36.

    Yes, it will fit with the deflector up. We used a 5'x8' open with a Lazer HP 52" this Spring.......
