    Hello everyone
    So i have a 36inch scag belt drive walk behind and looking at keeping it as a spare and upgrading to a 42" Wright Stander RH with the adjustable deck. Anyone running this model? i'm a little concerned about getting it in and out of my trailer, with such a short wheel base and me having a straight axle trailer with a very heavy 4 foot ramp my z just scrapes a little going up and down, i'm prob going to run into a larger problem with this?

    Raise your hitch ball up a few inches on your truck which will decrease the angle of your trailer ramp then your deck should clear it.
