    I have a 7x14 enclosed and a 10x14 Deckover.

    In the enclosed I strap the machine down on all 4 corners(i put hooks on the trailer floor) and have a pallet in the front section of the trailer. I would like to use the prolocker but then I would not be able to slide the pallet in.

    On the deck over I use 2 big ratchet straps over the top of the machine and chock the wheels. It's not really what I want ,but it works. I am thinking of using a prolocker for this and just taking it off when I don't need the trailer for the z spray.

    Do not use a pro locker. I bought one and it doesn't work with a z-spray. They told me it would work but the guy didn't know what he was talking about. It has to do with the frame arm that holds the wheel on, it isn't a typical lawn mower set up. I bent the mess out of the pro locker the first time I rolled into it because the arm bent the top of the brace and I had a terrible time getting that unit out of the locker after that. The strap would work better. Just trying to save you some time and money.

    I am not sure what you are talking about. I use a Prolocker and it works great.

    Turfscape,

    How are you using the Pro Locker with your Z? I have the intermediate with a 16" wheel and it's not able to be done. The "arm assembly" for the z wheel is to close to the tire and the comes in contact with the adjustable front bracket on the locker. I bent mine on the first effort.

    Any ideas on how it's working for you?

    Thanks,

    Finn
