It might be a little tight, but it should work. If your just starting out, keep the 10 length for now and upgrade later. Youll be glad you did though once you grow in the business.

It's not the size that counts, it's the motion in the ocean!

Wait... what are we talking about again?

Do you have the scags to experiment with the placement of them? If not, you could use one and then kind of tape or draw out where the mower is on the trailer and then move it to the other spot you have left to see if it fits.

I am working on starting my business.Mowers where last thing to buy.So i don't have one to try.But i think i've got it figured out.Accordimg to specs i found on Scag web sight is that all of there walkbehinds are 75" long.That was from front of mower to end of handles.My plans are one 52" mower pulled straight on back.And my other will be 36" pulled on side ways.I bought material to build side gate today.It should leave me 9".Thanks to every one who has helped.

Oh take some pictures as you work on the fabrication! I'd love to see it.
