My 18 open, the 18 closed is about the same with a few more tools.
i like that ^
thats a very nice set up , and thank you for posting the picture i wanted to ask why you have your push mowers behind the zero turn , i tend to use the zero turn more than any other mower , do you use the push mowers more than your rider or is this for weight control to keep weight closer to wheels than speed? Or do you find it faster to have the push mowers come off first? Thanks for your input.
It is the weight issue. The 72 is a little heavy to run to the back of the trailer. I have one strap holding them down and really can unload them without much issue. The 18' enclosed the push mowers are up front and WB is in the back with the 72 in front of it unless I know the next job the WB is needed.
Two 52inch walkbehinds and a honda 21 like in the picture above.
I use the same setup most days and cut everything from 3 1/2 acres to 1/4 acre lots.
18ft enclosed trailer
2 string trimmers
A52in z, 36in walk behind and 21in push mower is a good setup . The 52 and 36 use the same size blades. The 52 will work well for both large and small properties , while the 36 could be used for gated backyards . The 21 comes in handy for slopes and those area's where the other machines can't fit into.

Hey, great minds think alike.
Mon-Thursday 32 wb and a 36 scag wb. Fri 72 Ztr yanmar diesel as well as the scag. Everyday two echo trimmers and the echo pas system for edging hedge trimming etc. blowers have a 265t and a 225. Big guy for clean ups or wet grass little guy gets used more for clearing walks on dry days much lighter and almost twice to fuel savings. all ran from a 6.5x 14 trailer.
We cut from 1/4 acre to 3.5 acres with a 36 dual hydro walk behind/sulky, 52 zero turn, 21 push mower, 2 trimmers, 1 edger, 1 backpack blower. It all fits on our 5.5 x 10 open trailer. This pic doesn't show the 21 inch mower:
