Hey y'all, I may have another job ( that makes 3 in 3 weeks) but this one is huge. Over 2.5 acres. I need to fit my old lawn tractor, my 21" Toro, blower and trimmer. What size trailer do y'all use?

I use a 6 by 10.

I would suggest you lay out your equipment in your driveway the way you would place it on a trailer and measure how much room you would need.

We have quite a few and it depends on what we are hauling, sounds like you almost need a landscape trailer, our trailers run from 6 X 12 to 7 1/2' X 20, we also have one Cargo Trailer and considering another.

Most of my trailers are on this page of my website

I'll take that one, thanks!:p

I love cargo trailers, can't find a good deal anywhere.

How long was it after you bought your first trailer that you were wishing you got one size larger?

Well all the trailers serve a purpose and function, I had to buy trailers as we added equipment and I always bought larger than I needed by a few feet, I have a good selection and we can haul everything we own.

Hindsight is always 20/20, I would have had the 20' trailer last year, we made do with a 16' however there were many times we could have used it, I had it special made, it will haul 16,000 pounds, our largest excavator wheighs close to 14,000 but that is the biggest I could go without going dual wheels or a tri axle.
