Does exmark comm. 30 have fold down handles?

I need to pick up this mower far away. wondering if it will fit in my Car. do the handles fold down?

I have one, but never did that. I just looked at mine and there are 6 bolts that attach the handle to the mower and bracket. It looks like, if you undo 2 bolts to the handle & bracket the handle can pivot forward. Or if you remove all 6 bolts the handle will come completely off and you can move the handle forward, on top of the mower or lay it behind. The mower is heavy 170 pounds. It is also tall around 2 feet high to the top of the gas tank.

Spend the extra gas and take the truck hehe. jkjk

I fit a reel mower in the back of the car to save on gas once. Let me tell you it was a long uncomfortable ride back. I think the 30" handles will fold, you can remove them I'm almost positive on that. It won't be convenient and you won't be able to use the car everyday for hauling it, but to take a trip to pick it up, I think you could make it work. Might have to put it on the passenger side back, scoot the seat all the way up, and leave baby at home.

I just measured my height. It is 27" high with the wheels set to cut at 3.5". So it can get lowered a 2". Mine is in my trailer, so I can't lower it, without moving a bunch of stuff. If you are looking to put this in the trunk of a Honda Civic, it probably would not fit. If it going into the trunk of a 1978 Cadillac Coupe de Ville, it might fit. An SUV or hatchback should work. The handles do not fold at all, they can be un-bolted only to lie flat. The handle is one piece.
