    i would go with a 14 min, down the road you might go to a ztr, they are like 7 ft long,but try and run as light as poss down the road.

    They will fit. I currently use a 12 foot with a 48" WB and a 60" Toro with all other necessary equipment. However, when it gets to be aerating season, I run into space problems and have to leave equipment. If you can afford it, I would do a min. of a 16" for future expansion.

    We have a 5.5x10 and our 52" Stander and 48" Encore fit on it along with a 21" JD14SB comfortably. By the way, great to see a fellow Encore operator. They are great machines that are often overlooked by people diving into the walk behind world.

    Measure it! That is the most reliable way to know if they will fit.

    They'll fit but not much else. I'd get at least the 14' trailer. I just bought a new 16' tandem.....lots of room now!

    if you find a good deal let me know i would like one to. I have a 12' but could really move up to a 14' :waving:

    This image isn't to scale, but this is how I fit my mowers on my 7x14. Arrows are pointing to the front of the mowers. They'll fit fine. my trailer is 7.5 feet wide, however.
