    Is there anyway i could fit a 50" mower on a 4x8 trailer? I dont have the trailer yet and i dont have the mower yet.

    Yeah, I dont see a problem with fitting one on there. Buy the mower first and measure it before you buy the trailer. You won't be able to fit a whole lot on there though.

    im getting a free 4feet wide, 8feet long trailer from a relative. I was thinking putting it side ways but i dont know if the mower is longer than 48 inches.

    I doubt it would fit if it's got anti scalping wheels on the side of the mower.

    Why not just buy a 48 inch mower? It would probably fit the best.

    Most mowers are at least two or three inches wider than the cut dimension. Sounds like a pretty tough fit if the trailer has sides on it.

    Usually if something is 48 inches wide, i have found putting something 50 inches wide in it to be particualarily difficult. Maybe its just me.

    if there are no sides on it you'll fit it fine, however if there are sides it ain't fittin
