    Mid- or front- mount? If you got grass catchers on 'em, I'd want at least a 16', if not 18'. You can NEVER have too big of trailer lol.

    I run a 16 x 6.5 . Pull the 48" ZTR and pushmower side by side up front, and a 60" ZTR on the back, its close enough up so its over the axles.

    Not really ... I have a 6' x 12' open trailer and can fit 2 ZTR's on it !! The ZTR's that I put on it are 2 Dixon RAM MAG 50" machines (each one 69" long). When both of those units are on the trailer, I can't get anything else on it, however, they do fit.

    I agree with lifetree it's possible to put 2 ZTR's on a 6x12 .
    However, a 14 ft trailer would be best option...

    1/2 inch longer than the combined length of the mowers.
