    The is probably a stupid question but...

    There is an older toro proline 32" that I want to pick up about 25 miles from my house. I have a mercury sable right now as Im still looking for a truck. Do you think its possible to get the mower in the trunk? Ive never dealt with commercial machines before so if someone has done this can let me know, that would be great.

    Also, if someone can give me the approx demensions of the mower that would be helpful too.

    Find someone who has a truck, your not going to get that mower in trunk without tearing up the car.

    you must know someone who has a truck... everybody seems to know when you buy a pick-up, you suddenly become their new best friend!

    Yeah find someone who has a truck and give them some gass money, b/c Its not gonna fit in teh trunk because its way too back heavy cause of the motor and even if it fits thats not too safe at all, because the mower is a good size and not alittle push one.

    but goodluck.

    Thanks, I figured I couldnt fit it.

    Absolutely no one I know has a truck and to rent one would be $50+ and I think thats a waste. I guess Ill wait a another week or two to pick up the mower. Just hoping no one buys it in the mean time.

    Elite - best of luck trying to fit that into a car trunk - but yeah probably best to wait until you have a p/u. If you do go for it, take pics and post:)

    That mower is near 400lbs...is it the one blade 32 Classic or the two blader 32?

    You'll need a ramp one way or another whether truck, trailer or van...or 2 friends if you don't.

    Someone with a tilt trailer would be good to know about now!
