    I need to get a landscape trailer capable of hauling my Gravely 34Z and
    260Z. My only vehicle is an S10. It pulls my 7x10 trailer and one Z with no problem. I have not tried both yet, because they obviuolsy won't fit on my trailer together.

    Will a tandem axle be easier on my truck even though it is a little heavier? I was thinking 14' and no bigger since I have an S10.

    What engine is on your s10 and what is the tow capacity? If you go with a tandem axle you will need to hook up an electric brake controller on your truck as the trailer will have at least one set of brakes. That equipment and a 14' tandem will weigh easy around 4,000#.
