    I can't believe the "lawn grubs" I saw today. They had about a 6.5x12 trailer, and the one guy was loading a 60" Exmark Turf Tracer onto it. And to do it, he backed it in, then stepped about 12" up on top of the FENDER to finagle the rest of the machine on the trailer. I couldn't even watch, couldn't bear to watch the accident that will surely result some day..............

    Some guys........... Jeez...........

    i dont get what youre saying. a 60" mower is only 5 feet wide and hes on a 6.5 foot trailer. why did he have to finagle it on there?

    I saw a guy pulling a really funky looking trailer with a ZTR of some sort the other day. It was like an old Nissan PU and they didn't have the trailer on a receiver and ball. It was hanging by the chains only. The hitch was almost dragging the ground and swinging back and forth. Incredible.

    Agreed, according to the size of trailer you state, there was plenty of trailer to haul that machine. Maybe the guy likes playing Spider Man:blob2:

    I'm with everyone else, he could of ran a 60" ZTR or WB up on that trailer with no problems. Somebody's been in the heat too long...
