    Anyone got any trailers they want to get rid off? Im in need of a landscape trailer. Either a 77" by 10 or 12'. Or a dual axle 7' by 12 or 14'. Thanks. I have a toro z400 that I could possibly trade for the right trailer.

    If I had smaller mowers, that would be ideal. The smallest is a 60"!

    Thats fine. It is a 2007 Toro Z400. It has the 48" deck with the 21 hp Kawasaki. It only has 269 hours on it and has been well maintained. Just had new front tires on it due to a cut in one of them. Runs and cuts just like it should!

    this is a bmw trailer... there made towards the up in michigan. i bought it in 06. i have done a few things changed the 4 flat to 7 round plug. and put 4 led clearance lights and new light boxes with led stop trail turn, and amber warning lights that have clear lenses. the trailer is 79" wide and 14' long can easily fit two zs i can fit my 60" with a bagger on it in there its a nice trailer. it also has a blower mount in the front it fits new style stihl br 5 or 600 and it has a 3 place trimmer holder. its off because i moved them to a different trailer. but there no longer on any trailer and can come with to be re welded the trailer has original tires that are still good. for an idea of miliage they dont last that long

    no problem, I was wondering for myself too how it was to deal with them. I've got a 4 x 8 tilt that I would like to trade for a 5 x 10 with a gate.

    I've got a 14ft 08 leftover I bought in the fall of 09. Its a single axle, not sure on the width now but my 60" exmark with ultra vac system fits on it fine. I'll see if I have any pics.

    I would sell it, but its seems like I would have to give it away to get anyone to bite. Might just be to soon in the midwest to buy equipment.

    Please, that would be great. hope I can trade the mower and pick up a trailer with some cash. Id like $4000 for the mower, but $3500 right now might be more realistic!

    ya i see your point if you can just hang on to it till spring then sell it and get a used cheap trailer off craigslist in the mean time i was at an auction one time and got a 5 by 12 trailer that was rusted for $40 resold it in the spring for $500 and i didnt do a thing to it
