i currently have a 4x8 trailer w/single axle ( cant pull anything bigger as of right now) and i have 1 snapper 12hp RER , 1 crapsman's 7HP pushmower and a set of jungle jims #TR racks on it. my question is this.. i plan to buy a riding mower here in about 2 weeks to replace the snapper ( its too damn slow) will i be able to have the rider and a push mower fit on it, at the same time?

thanks
David

there most likely be no way to fit the ztr on this trailer.
take the trailer to the dealership and test if the ztr will fit with wise.
you can with the push mower ether on the deck or behind the mower with wise

Step 1. Locate specs for mower you plan to buy

Step 2. Locate a tape measure

Step 3. Measure your trailer

Step 4. ???

:D ;)


Good luck with your purchase and I hope it all works out.
I have a 5x8 and my 36" walk behind and 21" push mower both fit facing forward with about 4" to spare between them.
That said, all equipment is different, so that is a factor. My push mower tucks in under the handles of the walk behind, but wouldn't fit if the handle didn't lock into an upright storage position.

I only charge 15.95 plus travel for that service-your being nice



Take the trailer with you to the dealer, with anything else you want to put on the trailer, and try it out. That is the only way to be sure

Sorry. I meant a lawn tractor. Not a Zturn.

Thanks

The real question is, can you fit the trailer in the tractor?

Sounds like you need a 6x12 trailer with a 4 foot side ramp in the front ;) :D

I'd bring the trailer with you, loaded up and see if what ever you were looking to buy would fit. It's the only sure way to know.

yes,

and most of my research on lawn tractors seem to show that *most* of them except like the JD'S and the likes that have the push bar on the front are 70.5 inches long and the inside if the rails length is 92 3/4 inches

so that is 70.5 + 21.0 = 91.50 so i should be able to barely squeeze in all in there..

wheew

:p:p:p:p


thanks All
