    Not to be a smart you know what....

    But don't you know how to do math??

    61" mower is 61" wide, right??

    7' trailer is 84" wide, right??

    Are the wheel wells inside the trailer frame?? Or outside??

    Yes- The only area you have to watch is the cables on the side of the door.

    thanks, I was making sure cause IDK how wide outside framing is and how much it takes away from 84 total, also not sure about the wheel well thing but Im guessing they do not go inside now... but yes I can do math.

    you must be only thinking about buying a trailer.

    Some they might not fit, if they have wide wheel wells inside the trailer.

    I don't think most 7' wide trailers would, but before you see one and buy it without looking inside, bring a tape measure along.

    That was one of my concerns when i purchased my trailer would it fit. But this might help you out. Think of how wide a Polaris Ranger is.... Ok... Got it now my ranger fits inside of my 7 foot wide trailer but i don't have any wheel wells inside. And also my roll bars have been chopped and now it;s overall height is about 5 foot. For those who were in doubt that it would fit. Also i know a 72" will fit in mine also. I just had to lift up the discharge chute.

    Just going to have to measure. I had a 6x12 trailer and when I was going to buy the bagging unit for my 52" I measured the machine and it should have fit in the trailer but I didn't account for the outer framing which made my machine not fit. Long story short I sold my trailer and bought a 7x16...problem solved.
