    Hey all,

    for all of you who run 16' trailers, can you tell what mowers you have on there. I am trying to determine what you can fit on a 16' b/c I will be getting one soon.

    i have a 48 lazer Hp and a 36 Metro walkbehind, and still have a ton of room left over. I can fit a pallet of mulch between them as well, so there is still alot of room left for debris and mulch. I upgraded from a 10 footer, and wish I would have bought an 18 foot instead of the 16.

    A 52" Turf Tiger and a 72" Turf Tiger with a push mower on it. Built shelves so all gas cans and odd end stuff are up on there along with racks for rakes and shovels.
    Make sure you have a big enough vehicle to pull and stop the rig as well. If all you have is that Explorer, I'd be a bit worried if you load up that trailer and that little Explorer will get ripped around.
    Also why just 16'?? I made the mistake a couple years ago buyin my 16' but thats all money could buy at the time, suited my needs then and now but Its too small for the work we do now.
    Happy Trailer shopping

    Yeah, I know, but the Explorer has alot of miles on it, and pretty soon it will be replaced, no new trailer until I get a 3/4 ton.

    You can get lots of things on a 16' trailer. I have the following: John Deere 757 Z-Trak 60", Great Dane Scamper 52", 2- 21" push mowers and all the handtools have racks (except for hedge trimmer & chainsaw). I have plenty of room left over, I will be adding a 36" w/b soon and that will probably come close to filling it up.
