    Looks good but i have a question. Shouldnt you put the heaviest mower(the z) in the front so you have more tounge weight? Maybe it doesnt matter with a 300' trailer or what ever you have. But On my single axel I feel better if the bigger mower in the front for tounge weight. If it works for you awesome.

    bondman,
    A tandem axle balances out a lot different/better than a single axle. This trailer has more length in front of the axles than behind it. The two walk behinds in front definately balance the Z in back. It sits good this way. The truck has tongue weight, and enough of it, but not so much that it sits unlevel or squats the truck.
    If I'm running without the Viking as usual (never really take it with me) then I put the TTHP all the way foward and the Lazer right behind it, on top of the axles and thats a good balance too.
    Another reason I do what I do is because I'm all about effeciency. We use the Lazer a LOT more often than the TTHP, so why unload the TTHP everytime you need to use the Lazer? Thats crazy... I guess if you have to do it for good trailer balance then do it, if it makes you feel better. But this is balanced great, almost perfect actually.. and its most effecient for us.
    Thanks,
    ~Eric

    Thanks arborist.

    ToroLandscaper, the TTHP I don't know really. I think I would guess about 2,000 hrs or so... The Lazer I just got this spring and I have about 110 hrs or so on it.
