    Hey Gang,

    I have an Exmark 36" and am looking into a trailer that will run 6'4" by 12". Can I pivot that wb to fit sideways into the trailer without ripping my knuckles to shreds?

    Since it is assumed it is going to be an enclosed trailer, I'd say no. But you dould be happy if it had a 48" side door. A 36' side door will not do the job.

    Nah, this will be an open trailer. I'm not well-heeled enough at this point to spring for a closed trailer.

    In that case, Yes. .....

    I run a 6.5X12 open trailer some and have a 48" Gravely WB as well as a 60" Lazer. I run the lazer to the front and then turn the WB sideways on the back. It's tight, but it'll work. You will probably have to step up on the side rail to completely turn it sideways, there is not enough room for you and the mower sideways. I am almost finished with my 16ft. tandem with a 52" side gate at the front. I can't wait. I'll post pics later when I'm done with it.

    Sounds good. Now, if only steel prices would come down so I could afford a new trailer!
