View Full Version : Trailer weight/size question

08-14-2011, 07:50 PM
I started June 1 and am up to 21 customers. I just have a self-propelled troy-built mower, but am looking to purchase a gravely walk-behind 36" in the next month or so. To use that I need a trailer.

I'm only considering the enclosed trailers. Other than when I was in the Army, I've never pulled a trailer. I drive a trailblazer and am confused as to what the gvw is, the tongue weight, how to load it, etc. I've been reading http://www.hitchinfo.com/ , but I'm not getting this. How do I know where to put the mower in the trailer to not exceed the recommended tongue weight, but not so far back that the rear of the truck is loose?

How about put it right over the trailer axle?
