    Looking for feedback from people on what they feel is the ultimate set up as far as equipment to do it all , large trailers are hard to turn around in tight areas and dead end streets and how do you cover small lawns and big ones with the same set up? Getting ideas on changing my set up some and all feedback would be helpful , if you already have your ideal set up and can post pics on how you have it set up that would be great as well , look forward to seeing what other people are doing.

    36 Wb and either a 52 or 60 ZTR could get into the small stuff and fly on the big properties. Looking for a 60 for my setup.

    Can't post pics from my phone, but check out my thread Fagan Landscaping. 6x12 single axle trailer, 36" Toro Grandstand 18hp. , 21" Honda Push Mower, 60" Lazer 27 hp, pulled by a 2007 Chevy 1500. Easy to turn around, and can cut postage stamp yards to 5 acre commercial lots easily.

    If money isn't a issue 60" hyperdrive hustler super z 36 grandstand and 21 Honda push I have mine on a 16 ft dual axle but a 14 ft should work fine.

    currently we are running 20' trailer and 16' trailer as backup or 2nd crew depending how busy we are.


    but the 20' is setup as follows

    21" push mower, 52" walk behind and 2 zero turns, (either a 54" & 61" or 2 61") I don't think the push mower is on the trailer here but you get the point.

    I want to change it up to ideally have 21" push mower, 48" turf tracer, 52" Vride and 61" turf tiger. with the 61" wildcat as a backup
