    Just wondering see most see most of these set-ups w/ single axles. What weight of axle would be good for 6x10 trailer w/ 2x6 flooring wood sides. Have trailer now but have no idea what size axle so most likely change soon, before start pulling all the time.

    can't go wrong with a 5k, but i would think a #3500 would suffice depending on how much you plan to pack on it.

    Mines a 6 by 12 with a 3500 lb drop axel. It can take roughly 2800 lbs with breaks. Oddles for a 52" ZTR a walk behind and all the other good stuff.
