    I don't think you can get a ZTR rider w/ bagger and a 48"w/b on a 6x12. I had a 36 proline w/b and my 60" Lesco and it barely fit without a bagger.

    I have a few trailers. The first trailer I ever bought was a 7' x12' single axle. I still have it. It will fit a 52" scag tiger cub with bagging system and a 48" bobcat walk behind along with a 21" push mower. It is a little wider than most trailers but I bet you can fit that on a 6x12 too.

    that being said...that trailer is useful for some things but I certainly wouldn't be able to function without bigger trailers. I have a 6x18 with all trimmer and blower racks, gas can holders. That trailer is a great mowing trailer.

    not sure if it's available for this trailer as it's a single axle.i know if i jumped up to a double axle it would come with them.

    its an option, right now i have a 6x14' with a 5,200lbs axle with breaks i added this axle after i bought the trailer with out breaks and i wouldnt go back saves alot of stress on the truck breaks

    Its brakes! Breaks is what happens when you don't have brakes. LOL

    I could get the walk behind and 60" on the trailer it was just really tight I mean the ztr was rammed up the walk behinds butt. I have no problems with the Wright stander and I can fit two and the 60" on a 6x12 with room to spare.
