Your Powertow comes packaged from the factory in a reusable, re-enforced cardboard box. The box and all of the internal components may be reused. The total package will fold flat to about 5".
However preserving the box during unpacking can be a bit difficult, especially if you do not have a helper. New shipping kits cost $75 (at the time of this document), plus shipping, keeping the box around may save significant money if the machine ever needs to be shipped later.
We have tested this method of unpacking that saves the box. Works with 1 or more people. Please review the instructions below.
