    hello friends,just wondering if a single axle 6x12 trailer would be sufficient for a 60 inch toro with a 27hp.just wondering if the 3500 pound axle would handle it due to the weight of the mower,couldn't find the weight of this mower on the spec sheet,thank you guys for the help

    When I started I purchased a 5 x 10 single axle 3500 pound, trailer and loaded it with a 52" exmark that weighed 13xx pounds, a walk behind that was around 300.

    Had no problems, however I had problems with banging the sides of the trailer with the 52' loading and unloading.

    ya may wanna check to see if you can get that toro on there.

    a word to the wise. I really kicked myself for getting this trailer, because I quickly out grew it, in 6 months..

    Good luck

    i think the 60 inch toro should have no problems hitting the sides of a 6 foot wide trailer,should it?
