    I recently purchased a 6'4"x12' trailor with one axle!, do they make them with two axles?

    Just curious!

    It cost me about 1100
    THATS CHEAP! Its an international, but I am thinking that I should have got a 2 axle 14' trailor Can I fit 1 commercial ztr on a 12'?
    I'm planning on getting a ztr soon, like an exmark lazer!

    Did I make a mistake on buying this trailor?

    Will it hold the weight, the deck is made of 3/4" salt treated wood!

    Most zturn mowers are around 6.5 feet in length so you will not have any problem fitting a rider on,it is whatever else you want to fit on the trailer that is the question.I have a 5x10 trailer that I use for cutting that I love because it fits my lazer hp 52" on as well as a trim mower.It tracks great for me and its great in traffic as it is no wider than the truck.backs up well too.We have a 6.5x12 that we use for cutting as well for a 60" lazer but it is a pain in some of the traffic we encounter going over a certain bridge in our area.My 5x10 will technically handle the weight of two zturn mowers(2300 pound trailer capacity plus 650 trailer weight)
    Just my thoughts,Good luck.

    It sounds like you did ok on your trailer. A few weeks ago, I picked up a 6'6"x10' single axle trailer with gate/ramp for $750. It was made by a local trailer manufacturer, and it has the boxed or tube style frame, as opposed to the more common angle iron. I was impressed that it also had side marker lights. All the others I'd looked at in my area in this size did not have this feature. Good luck with your new trailer.

    I would replace the bottom with 2 x6 treated lumber and yes they do make them with tandem axels.

    Here's a pic of my new trailer.
