  • Trailer advice please

    I have a quick question about purchasing my first trailer. I found a 5x8 trailer for a price I can afford. I was wondering if I could fit two 36 or 48 inch commercial walkbehinds on it. If I can't obviously I won't buy it. Thanks in advance for the help!

    ? If you are talking side by side then no. But right behind each other sure you should have plenty of room.

      36" mowers are rarely 36" wide when everything is measured. Same for 48".

      So why not tape out an area on your driveway and roll your mowers into the area and see how they fit before you buy anything.

        Look into a 6x10

        I can fit my Zero-Turn, 2 self-propelled lawn mowers comfortably. Trimmers can go in along with blowers, but it gets to be a hassle (I put them in the bed of the truck). There is always room for gas cans however.

        If you saw my video, as I pull the tractor out, you'll see what I mean.

        My arsenal;
        1 Ford F-150 Lariat
        1 6x10 Galvanized Steel Trailer
        3 Handheld Blowers
        1 Backpack Blower
        3 String Trimmers
        2 Chainsaws
        1 Hedge Trimmer
        1 Zero-Turn Mower
        2 Self-Propelled Mowers
        1 Dethatcher
        3 Garbage cans
        8 x32 Heavy-Duty Contractor Garbage bags
        5 Gas cans
        3 Rakes
        1 Dethatching rake
        2 Garden shovels
        8 Winter shovels
        2 pickaxes
        and a ton of other tools I'm forgetting about.

          i have a 5x8 and can fit my 50" ZTR and a 36" wb right behind it. I have a dual trimmer rack on the side of the trailer and blower in the bed of the truck. I am looking to add a blower rack.

            you can fit it but it will limit you in the future. I bought a 5x8 but it was to small, then a 6x12 and then finally a 7x16. Size matters! If your small and want to stay that way get a 5x8 if not grab at least a 6x10.
