    baxter not trying to sound like a xxx but??? any 12` trailer would hold a ztr and walk wth??? i can tell you that sounds off to me completely considering we can place a 60" gravely and a waLker on a 12, trailer.
    and with the same gravelys and our 52"bradley`s we have between 2 and 3` left.....what is up with your 36"??,

    it sounds like misinformation to me if it would not fit what is the missing details as to why???
    the OP needs to park his stuff then measure it off,not to complicated

    it will tilt but i didnt say we tilted it to load it.
    a walker will tuck under the engine frame of a z cutting off about 2 ` of its length

    a z is under 7` most of them anyways. is a 36" over 6`??? because i would think you could load them togather

    the bradleys will tuck near a foot under them as well the wheels of the walker and bradleys hit the wheels of the Z mowers

    xls I tried every different way possible to fit the 36 and the ztr. The issue was getting the wb to turn sideways not enough room to swing. And sorry I'm gonna correct myself it was a 5x12.

    5x12 dont allow the 36 to be off to one side so i see it getting tight especially with a sulkey.

    Yeah I know 5x12 is tight, but it works with only the 36. My advice was to go as big a possible. Unless you only plan on running small equip. If you want to expand or get new stuff or even extra jobs and still mow that day. BIGGER IS BETTER.

    I went from a wide 12' open to a 16' Pace that is the widest you can get. If your trailer is too tight you will waste time and money trying to get to your equipment. I have a bad azz set up that I can send you pictures of. You can take one step inside my trailer an grab three blowers off a customized Trimmertrap rack, four string trimmers off a Extreme Series rack, a 2.5 gallon mix can off a custom made rack, or string trimmer line off the wall mounted spool.

    All mowers are secured by Prolockers that can release the mowers with the quick pull of a knob. We have a rack on the ceiling that holds a 3' & 8' folding ladder. A box in the front of the trailer holds 10 gallons on gas and 7.5 gallons of mix. We have custom made storage compartments for our articulating trimmer and four hand help trimmers.

    It's all about having an efficient setup that saves you money at every stop but safely stores your equipment.
