The handles fold down and its very light. Its perfect to put in the back of my car to take to a rental I own. Since its so light its extremely easy to take care of my own, as well as the rentals yards.
This is the best addition you can add to your lawn care equipment. It makes it easier to clean up twiggs in your yard and works wonderful if you are cutting down a small tree. I don't know if I would recommend it for a large job but when you have multiple trees in your yard and suffer from winter breakage, it's a great way to get rid of limbs that easily.
