Default My new toy!

Just picked this up the beginning of the week. Can wait for the grass to grow to break her in.

Only downfall is I can't fit both this and my Ferris 36 WB on my 5x10 trailer. So looks like I have to upgrade to a 6x12

If anyone is in southeast michigan and needs a trailer. I have one for a good price.

Can you put them on the trailer at an angle? Maybe they will fit better that way?

I have tried just about every combo possible. Everytime I come up about 5-6 inches too long. (that didnt sound to good). If the trailer was 6 ft wide it would be no issue, but being only 5ft is the issue. The s75x is a 52inch cut so it barely fits as is. I even tried to put the 36 sideways, but no go...

Oh well I do a lot of landscaping work and the bigger trailer would really help anyways.

Thanks for the tip!

Jay

have you tried to put them on with the handles facing the front of the trailer so they hang towards your truck, that might be a better fit?

That was acutally the first thing I tried. My Ferris Wb is about 2 inches over 5ft from the front caster wheels to the back of the unit (not including handle bars) and thus wont fit sideways either. The S75x is about 65 inches long and 52 inches wide. I knew It would be a possible issue when I bought the new machine. So I am not upset, I was going to buy a gravely 48inch stander, but I could not pass up the price on the snapper pro. The stander would have fit, the s75x wont. Having to sell my trailer and buy a 6x12 is not too big of an issue considering I got the S75x for under $5K and I have been eyeing a bigger trailer anyway. I appreciate the help.

To bad there is just no way to extend the trailer you have. Maybe you can keep it to haul mulch.

Not my trailer any more... I posted it on craigslist a few hours ago and someone starting in the biz already showed up and bought it. Crazy!!!

Thanks for your suggestions. It was a great trailer and I hope to get my new one in a week.

I agree with hedgemaster
it looks really cool
does it cut nice? do you like it?

it looks like a stand on but with a dirtbike seat of some sort..
dosnt look comfortable if you decided to stand and you hit a bump..then..well im sure youd get the picture...

looks cool but seems uncomfortable to ride either way..could i see a pic of the back?
