    Okay, I just bought my mowers today. They're at the dealer awaiting pickup.

    Question: From anyone's experience, will a 52" Lazer Z HP and a 36" Metro w/b fit in a 6x10 enclosed trailer?

    If you turn the metro sideways in the back of the trailer you might get them in by a hair. I had a hard time getting a 52" w/b sideways behind my 52" Z-rider on my 6x12 trailer. It's a frustration!

    yes, easily. the walk behind will have to be sideways, but it will fit no problem.

    I would put the walk behind in front (sideways), and the ZTR in the back. That way the wait is positioned more on the axle, and not the tongue.

    I have the same kind of setup, but on an open trailer. Metro goes on first, then I back on my 52" Scag, works out just perfect.

    Haven't bought yet. Looking at an Express Hauler by United Trailers or a Car Mate or a Continental Cargo.

    Any other suggestions?
