Default trailer help!

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

Step 1. Locate specs for mower you plan to buy

Step 2. Locate a tape measure

Step 3. Measure your trailer

Step 4. ???


Sorry... if you want the remaining steps to unlock this mystery, send $29.99 in a self addressed stamped envelope to:

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

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.
