I doubt you will get it in there without the risk of tearing or gouging up your interior.

Dont forget you have the mounting bracket sicking out in the back.....

How big is your car?? If it's a small import, then no. If it's a Town Car, then yes!! :D

take the seat out first - the problem will be getting it through the door.  once inside there is plenty of room.

You might need a really big shoehorn  :poke:

Get a trailer for behind the car. HF has a good one for $250 on sale right now. Its marked down from $399. You have to carefully assemble it for good tracking. Good Luck, Rick

My dad had a 1965 Caddy Convertable, and you could have put the tractor in the back seat WITH all the attachments!

I danged sure wouldn't try putting it in the back seat of any car even if there was room.

 

Those things aren't light, and trying to manhandle it into a back seat would be a major job.

 

OH, that ad is from 7 days ago.  He reposted it two days later at $5.00 less  :D :D :D

C'mon, borrow or rent a truck from someone or even U-haul like places have cheap rental for short trips!  IF you're gonna get into the Hobby tho, buy a small trailer from a farm store or somewhere to get started.

I would say major damage to the car, the blower, and your back are all a very good chance.

Now a MINIVAN? Ohhh Yeah!

And I hauled a Danuser CD-1 post hole digger from Connecticut to Illinois in the back of a mid-size German sedan with the rear seats folded down, and a tarp spread under it to keep the schmutz off the car. Getting it back out was a trick, though. (And hearing the crap I got from friends for even putting it in there in the first place)

I sure wouldn't. Even if it fits, it would probably tear the heck out of the interior. They are heavy, and have lots of corners!

How bout going to a Home Depot and buying a sheet of plywood ( so u can rent their trailer on the cheap) and then pick up the blower on the way back?
