    What size trailer will be just big enough to fit 2 21" mowers side by side? What should I expect to pay?

    Is there a reason why you wouldn't want to put them in the back of your truck, or do you not have a truck?

    Would two wooden ramps not work? That's what I did when I worked for a friend years ago. I'm not trying to change your mind, I'm just curious. Otherwise a trailer like C Man posted would be just about right.

    Ok , slighty off topic, I would look @ a 5x8 in case you decide to move up to a larger walkbehind unit. A 4 x8 would get you by for now but if you move up to maybe a 48'' mower it would be too small, just my 2 cents

    Get one of the rideon spreader ramps that plugs into a hitch. Has the ramp built in and I would imagine with some modifications you could get both on there.

    Much easier to get around that way!

    Thank you C Man for the link. I must have been unclear in my question because everyone gave me suggestions on what else i could do instead of answering my question about the trailer.

    I have 2x21" mowers. I want the smallest trailer possible that will fit them side by side. The trailer needs to have a ramp built into it. What size trailer do you think covers this and what should i expect to pay. Does anyone have a link to a trailer like this?

    Please dont suggest ramps or hover crafts or catapults or anything else besides a trailer that fit this description. :D

    I stated that a 4x8 would do it, Im not sure of the width of a 21'' mower but 2 x 21'' = 42 so that leaves you 6 inches to spare. Northern tool has a 4x8 with a gate for around $500.00 I think, here is a link
