I find that for most people a folding handle is more of a gimmick type thing, like if you store it in the garage next to a car or something, 99% of commercial stuff doesnt have it. It usually makes the handle assembly more flimsy. Although my ryan aeartor has one, and toro snowblower, lol, but I never use that feature. I could understand with an enclosed trailer though, depending on the size. But if you need to fold the handle then I think its time for a bigger trailer, but Im sure you know that, or are getting to that point when a bigger trailer is on the horizon.
