    I Just Bought An Enclosed One Also 7x14. Had Some Items Removed From My Open Trailer By Some Thieves. Cant Afford To Let Them Run Off With Anything Else.

    everything gets locked to the trailer and then locked in the garage it doesnt matter if you have an enclosed and open a half and half. if someone wants to steal it theyre going to break the locks or break the doors or do whatever it takes... but atleast it will slow em down... and congrats on your new trailer.

    Our trailor os a 6X12 and we fit a 36"wb Gravely 34Z and 48"lazer HP or Cub commercial M48 all at the same time. Or we fit both the 48" ZTR's. Your going to have a ton of room with just 2 48" WB's!!

    what is that trailer rated for, it looks like it has to much weight on it, not sure what your mowers weigh i guess

    3,000 pound axle. 1K for the big mower, like 750 for the 34Z and about 500 for the WB.

    You are OVERWEIGHT then on that single axle.....cause you forgot to include the weight of the trailer too, which a 6x12 is a min 900 pounds so at the weights you gave (which are light, cause they really are more like 1100#, 900#, and 750#) your are already at 3150 pounds without any handhelds, blowers, gas cans, etc. Just a matter of time before you have axle issues.

    REMEMBER, just because it will FIT, doesn't mean it isn't too heavy.
