    I just bought a used great dane surfer with a fixed deck. My question is how do you guys keep the mower from bottoming out when you load and unload it? My trailer is kinda high in front and a 5foot gate at the back. I have it at 2.5 inches for most of my yards. Just need some ideas. o yeah, the trailer is dual axle.

    Raise the deck or walk a wheelie up the ramp.

    Ride a wheelie. I have super surfers and do this all the time. The trick is getting them back off the trailer. You have to stop where they bottom out and rock the mower while going backwards. Same idea as a wheelie just in reverse.

    Put an arc in your trailer ramp. Any welder can do it. Wheelies can be dangerous.
