    I needed something a little bigger to haul my 72" toro. I'm also starting to install a lot of mulch and there's a high delivery charge unless you order 15yds. I went with the 7k axles and gooseneck so that I can handle a skid steer or tractor in the future. The trailer is 7x20, just long enough to handle a couple 325Ds just in case I add another one in the near future.

    The price of the trailer really went up quick as I started adding things. The base price for a 7x20 bumper pull equipment trailer is $2700. Gooseneck add $600, 4' mesh sides with two doors up front $1000, landscape gate in addition to equipment ramps that were included $150, and add some tax and you're at almost $4800.

    I do a number of properties with some acreage, my largest being 13 acres. I do have a lot of smaller lots that I use my 50" Gravely Zero turn on. The Gravely does look a little ridiculous sitting on that 20ft trailer alone. I like mowing wide open areas and not having to get in the truck to move every 30minutes. I'd like to get some more properties in the 5-20 acre range and maybe add another 72" toro.

    Very nice addition! I have a question for you though, is there any specific reason that certain Toro's have the discharge chute on the left side of the deck?

    yea, nice trailer and truck! not the biggest fan of the rims on the truck though, it just bugs me when lawn care guys put custom chrome rims like that, no offense or anything.

    But i love the trailer!
