    can i fit a 60" or a 61" on a 5.5x10 Trailer??

    i did some math, i may have done it wrong but here it is...

    12"= 1ft

    so 12 x 5.5= 66"

    a 61" would probably be around 63-64" deck and all...

    Did i do it right? will it fit?

    Thanks

    Should not be a problem just put the discharge shoot up out of the way. My Exmark is only about 1" over the listed 60" deck size, same with all my mowers.

    Check your weight rating on your trailer too. Most manufacturers list the actual machine width on their literature and websites. Is the Toro you have going bye bye ?

    Your a lawnsite senior member and you ask this kind of question? This site gets more and more ridiculous everyday. I hope the 800+post that you have weren't giving advice as a senior member. :confused: Good math skills though.

    Dillon is young and has asked a lot questions to learn the business. I don't think the last 2 posts are even necessary.

    Did you know it all at 17 just starting to drive and running your own business?
    By todays standards most kids are playing video games and don't even want to hear that bad word work. So I say give him a break he's learning .
