    hey guys can you get two w\b 48" and two 21" w\b in an 6x12
    enclosed trailer? l am now using a van with one 48 and one 21
    with my brother but want to upgrade to a f-250 and 6x12 enclosed all replys appreciated. thanks:confused:
  2. Draw a 6'X12" rectangle on the ground with chalk. Now manuver the machines to see if they will fit.

    My 6.5' X 10' open trailer I can fit 2-52" WB's on it and that's it, and they are side ways on the trailer. I can also fit a 60" DC and a 52" WB, like said above side ways only.

    Do the chaulk thing, so you can see for yourself. It will somewhat depend on the model (by a few inches). I have a 6x12' open trailer and I can get two Scag WB's on it (inline). When I try to put my 52" ZTR, and one WB on the trailer the WB has to go on sideways (wouldn't work in an enclosed trailer).

    If you are upgrading do yourself a favor and go bigger. I would go 7x14 or even 7x16. You will want the extra room if you get a larger deck in the future. After one year my 6x12 open is not large enough, nd I am a lone ranger.

    You should be able to put the 21" machines on either side of the rear wheels of the last in machine, having the big machines straight in. I can put my two "very long and large" Hustler WB's, one 48" and one 54", in straight ahead, and put either a blower or 21" machine on one side on the rear wheel of the last machine. You should have no problem with one on either side.
    I have an enclosed 6x12 trailer.

    I have got to believe the key to this is getting as much up off the floor as possible. Racks for eaters, edgers, rakes, gas cans, yada.. would be essential. I am also thinking that geting that 21" in a rack/shelf (mid thigh level of course) like I see on a lot of these 6'10"s may be a way to go. You could put the nose of one of those 48"ers under the rack/shelf.

    I got a 6.5hp self propelled that there is not a prayer in the world that I would put on a rack except I use it once is a blue moon.
