Will it fit?

    I am thinking of buying a used toro ztr rider. The mower is about an hour and a half away so I can't see before I go up there but my trailer is 57in wide. The guy said the mower is 55in wide with the chute up and I will be putting a mulch kit on it anyways. Do you think it could be maneuvered on the trailer or would it just be a pain in the ass every time?

    Sounds like tight squeeze...It may be alright, but myself prefer bigger so you don't have to wonder...Joe

    It will fit but will be tight. If you are having to unload it multiple times a day it will become pain since you will only have 1in on either side for wiggle room. With that said you might be better off with a slightly smaller mower or a bigger trailer.
