    Thanks in advance for the input! Anyone know if the chute and handlebars can be fairly easily removed to load this into the back of my suburban (I've got 37" of vertical clearance).

    no. Get a trailer hitch mounted tote. Unless you're going to just deliver it and keep it in one place. If you're planning on carting it from place to place during a storm, taking it apart and putting it back together, you're nuts.

    See that's what we needed to know. So you only need to get it in the truck once?

    And how are you buying one in LA, and why?

    Well then in that casr, you can take anything apart with the proper tools. BUT, I would still suggest a tailgate mounted carrier. They are cheap enough and easy to deal with if you already have a receiver.

    Best option for you is probably to buy it in a crate, i.e., before it is assembled. The box should fit in your car just fine, and you can put it together yourself when you get there.

    One question though.... you have a big vehicle like that, but don't have a trailer?

    Must be expecting a bad bad winter if they are selling snow blowers in LA. What are we going to get in the north. (Sorry for hijacking your thread )
