    Came across a smoking hot deal on a 61in ferris Z but I'm afraid it won't fit on the trailer. What do you guys think?

    It really depends on the trailer, there is no standard and most have a bit more area than advertised. Do you have the trailer yet? Why not measure?

    If this is going to be a future trailer you just realized you need a 6x12 instead.

    Probably not. You might be able to just squeeze it on if you took the chute off, but who wants to do that every time when loading.

    I doubt it. My 5x8 enclosed barely let's my 48" in.

    Not likely but measuring is the only way to tell. My 72” mower is really 76 wide without any kind of discharge guard.

    Bummer, I figured as much I was just hoping maybe they just round up on deck size.

    that's because it's enclosed.

    measure your trailer. my 5x8 is 5'6" wide.
