    I've been in the lawn care field for almost ten years now and next season I am going to break off on my own. I just have a few questions before I purchase some equipment. My main questions is what size enclosed trailer are most of you working with? I am going to have 1 60in. zero turn with bagging system and 1 48in. walk behind. I am limited on space at my home where the truck and trailer will be parked so I am hoping to stay around an 18ft. trailer but what do you think? I don't see ever running any other set up in this trailer besides these two mowers. Other than the obvious trimmers, blowers, etc. Thanks in advance for any advice

    I think 18 will be more than enough 12-14 would probably work just as well. Try setting your equipment like it would be in the trailer and measure maybe add a little for push mower, baggers etc.

    Get the largest trailer you can afford... you will Quickly run out of space.

    I was wondering why an enclosed trailer ?
