    Will a 72" Lazer fit on my 75" wide trailer?

    Put a side gate on it and you can make it as wide as you want.

    The Lazer Z should be roughly 73" with the deflector up. That's an inch on both sides. Not really enough room for me. You will need swiveling room when you reverse direction of the mower to get it back off of the trailer. When you reverse direction to get it off the front casters will spin around and point in the other direction. It's during the spinning time that you will need more than an inch of room as the mower will pull one way or the other.

    The caster wheels do not rotate outside the cutting width on the 72"...they are well inside from what we have demoed and it did not really move left or right when changing directions. (I could be wrong)
