take the wheel barrow and strap it nose down in the "aframe" at the tounge of the trailer with the flat side against your steel tool cage. and the handles pointing into the air if you shift your WB to one side, you could put your Grass Catcher on the side, and there appears to be enough room behind the ZTR for the 21" push mower

or you could make a bracket to hang the grass catcher on the back side of your tool cage. and put the slide the push mower int he front of the trailer to the right or left of the WB with he deck of the push under the cage like the WB.

I hated having tools in the back of the pickup truck. The back of the truck was for trash and debris...

My trailer is loaded 27 pounds under weight as you see it sit right now....If I put the push mower on the trailer to right or left of w/b The tiger ends up having to go right or left also and the one side being heavy I can notice alot on highway @ 55-65mph........also if the tiger is'nt all the way up against w/b I gat all kinds of sway @ 40mph or faster......Will strap wheel barrow as recommended ...I'm like a 1" short of width to put a 21 behind turf tiger....I try like hell all the time though.......Thanks.Shane

As long as you don't plan on buying another big piece of equipment, I would say the trailer is just right. I don't understand why some have 20' trailers for a ztr, a 21 and a wb. When everything is crammed together, it can't move that far if you stop hard, unlike with a bigger trailer with tiedowns.

Exactly... I don't think bigger is always better. Efficiency is the name of the game... less overhead, gas = more profit.
