    so, is your 61" mower not actually 61" cut? You have to add at least 4 inches, so a 61" needs at minimum a 65" width to get in, with discharge chute up.

    a 5.5ft wide trailer is 66 inches.....please explain how you magically got a few inches on each side, meaning, your 61" deck is actually only a 60" deck and the blades must not cut 60" either.

    Lol. True, I took a look at the mower and I really like it very solid. But without a question its not gonna fit. We made a deal he'll sell it to me at the end of the year so ive got more time to get money around for a trailer mower and truck.:laugh:

    He didn't say a couple, he said a few, which is 3, so no he can not say what he said, lol. Math doesn't work.

    Either way, let's play your game. Let's say his 61" mower is only 62.75" wide, or let's round it up to 63" just to make it easier. That means he only has 1.5" on each side with a 5'5" (66") trailer. Either way, his 61" mower is not only 63" wide from deck side to deck side and you know it, a scag cheetah also is not 1.75" wider than the cut, the deck sits at 63.5 inches wider.
