    How would you set up the perfect trailer for a 1/2-2 acre account route?

    Your allowed 4 mowers on the trailer

    #1 1- 21"
    #2 1- Walkbehind
    #3 2- Riders
    #4 2 -Blowers
    #5 2- Trimmers

    All has to fit on a 16' trailer

    1 52" 27 HP Dixon Grizzly with grass catcher
    1 42" Walker MCGHS
    2 Honda Commercial 21" 's
    2 Hsqv. 323L trimmers
    1 Stihl FC75 Edger
    1 Echo Hand held blower
    1 Echo BP blower
    Then a toolbox for all the misc stuff, and a front rack for gas cans and whatnot. I am pretty sure that would fit on a 16', but would get a 18 or 20' just for good measure. Would also be nice to be bigger for aeration, overseeding and power raking to haul around all the extra stuff, seed, and fertilizer. Also a gasoline air compressor would be nice.

    All this would be pulled by a 2007 New body style GMC 3/4 ton ext. cab 4x4, with either dump insert or dumping flatbed.

    Nice set up pro...You would go for the 52"Dixon and not the 60"?? I think you would get all that on a 16 footer:waving:

    Yea, around here I know of basically ZERO residential LCO's that run 60 inch mowers. There just aren't enough BIG properties to make it worth it. A lot of the bigger LCO's in town are still running 5022 and 5023 Dixons.

    60" Bobcat midmount
    48" Walker GHS
    21" Lawnboy self propelled
    Stihl trimmer
    Echo back pack, very seldom used.
    This is what my wife hauls in the 16' cube van on a daily basis. She does small to 4 acre properties with this setup. By herself.
