    Well i'm hopping that next year ill have enough clients to run two mowers, a zero turn and a walk behind. However heres the problem they done fit on my trailer. Tried it with my grand fathers zero turn. Any ideas how to make them fit? maybe ramps up the side?

    I used to but the WB sideways up front and then bring the ZTR up behind it and tuck the front wheel in anywhere on the WB kind of putting the ZTR at an angle, which reduces its length. Try it, hope it works.

    Hmm, I would load the walkbehind on first and then drive on the ZTR...hope it works

    Put the front casters of the walk behind over the rail at the front of the trailer then load the Z??? I dont know if that helps?

    If that's the small amount of clearance you need why not put a small spacer next to the ramp hinges?

    Did you try the WB in front? Also what size trailer do you have?

    How does that tire hold air?

    I have made extra room backing the ztr on the trailer first. The rear clears the front rail on the trailer.

    Maybe it's a solid or hollow no flat tire...or a whole lot Slime in there.
