    Trying to figure out a configuration
    So i can either get 3 or 4 mowers going to job sites.

    Got 2 Scag 61 mowers
    and 1 Gravely 48 and an Exmark 48"

    Was thinking about an 18" Gooseneck trailer 6.5 wide

    You can probably find the answer to that by parking your mowers in a likely configuration and then measuring the area they take up. You should probably try a few different arrangements (and remember to allow a little extra room).

    Definitly go for a 20'+ trailer. Give you some room to move around. Look for a gooseneck lowprofile equipment trailer and get the a reinforced ramp/gate combo.

    You will need at least a 25' trailer. Better have at least a 1 ton truck to pull that much weight as well.

    Why not buy a tractor/trailer? They make them 50ft long. That will for sure hold all of them.

    I have 22 ft x 84'' flat bed and can only get 3 60'' side ways on the trailer could be room for 48''small mower
    But if I pull them on long ways Then the 22' only holds 3 mowers no space left
    Most mowers are longer then they are wide

    My enclosed is 24. I have 3 60 inch Zs and a walkbehind. I bet I could fit a 4th Z in there if I took out the walkbehind.

    My 24' enclosed can fit my front mount 72" and our 2-60" Z's.......but just barely. To also fit my 54" stander I would need a 28' maybe even a 30'. Better go with a 28' for 4- 60" zero turns.
