    Search in harbor freight's website for trailer. Just make sure the weight rating can handle your mower. You may need to put plywood on it. These usually run anywhere from $150 to $350, and harbor freight always has 20% off coupons. (Just search harbor freight coupon on google) Wait for it to go on sale, then use a coupon I've seen them go for as little as 90 bucks with a coupon.

    Harbor freight stuff isn't great, but I buy random stuff from them all the time. Trailer mechanics and wiring isn't hard, and it's a useful skill to learn. If you get one, work on it yourself and learn the basics. You will always need this knowledge in this business, trailer repair guys charge a fortune for even the most basic repairs.

    I think you would need something bigger. If you are going to be doing a lot of highway speeds I would recommend a trailer with at least 15" tires. May be hard to find on your budget BUT you can find a turd trailer on Criegslist and refurbish it for very cheap! A 4x8 would be my suggestion to start.

    4 acres standing up on a belt drive walk behind? Oh to be a teen again. Any of the guys on here that do a property that big have 60 " ztr or larger and more than one guy mowing. I know you would hate to turn it down, but are you sure you're not in over your head.

    Not questioning your experience. I'm sure your fine with that. I would fall asleep from boredom. Make sure your Ipod has an extended mowing mix loaded. Yard sizes like that make you appreciate sitting down, groundspeed and suspension seats.
