I am being gifted a 60 inch exmark commercial commercial mower. 1 question- what size trailer should I purchase? Bigger than 5 by 8?

I would go larger than 5' wide because the discharge chute will add some width, plus the mower might be a few inches wider than 60. Maybe get a 6x8?

I have always said this especially after helping work the accidents of trailers tearing away from the vehicle or just plain wrecking from blown tires, spend the extra money and get a real trailer, get a dual axle and something big enough where you can carry your mower and other items at the same time.
Get a dual axle 6'X12' or "6' X16' if you have a ATV, UTV or something else you might haul"

If my toro did not come with a rubber bendable chute it would not fit on a 5x10

If you are getting the ZTR free you should at least be able to afford a nice, new trailer for it!! I'd recommend a 6 X 12.

Bear in mind that the shorter the trailer the more difficult it is to back up.

60 inches equal 5 feet so there's a possible clue. Really depends on what you plan to do. As in what else you will you haul around and how often. If you have a place to store it I'd recommend a 6x12. I have a 5x10 and wish it was bigger.

If your mower is a sixty inch mower you'll want nothing smaller than a 6x12, most 6x12 trailers will measure about 76 to to 79 inches wide so it would give you the necessary room for the Exmark. If you need a single or duel wheel trailer would depend on what your going to be doing with it or how big a load weight wise you carry. Most single axle trailers are rated to carry 3500 or so lbs.
