Just purchased the above craftsman lawn tractor. Checked the manual and website, but could NOT find the dimensions of the lawn mower. I need to rent a trailer for transporting the lawn tractor home, but need the correct size.
What are the dimensions of the tractor with the cutting deck attached?
Where can I get the specific dimensions of the unit?
The manufacturer does not list the overall dimensions of the tractor. Having a tractor this size though I know that a trailer with a width of 5ft and length of 6ft will carry it perfectly. If I'm not mistaken the tractor has a true width of about 4feet and length of about 5feet. You will need to lift the discharge chute (guard) up when you put it on a trailer unless the trailer is pushing 6feet wide.
Per the shipping information on this tractor, it is 6' 1" long and 3' 9" wide. So a 5X6 trailer will still carry these newer models as long as the back of the trailer does not have a gate or rail that has to be closed. If it does, you can let about half the air out of the tires and that will allow the gate to close on most trailers.
