I will never have the hand rail up when I am not up there. Actually that might be the only time I put it up! It is 13 feet tall with the auger and extensions laid down. It will only fit in one of the sheds. It has auto-steer, hid lighting, elect. mirrors, trailer hitch, pretty much everything but rwa. I wanted it but we just don't need it that often in no-till. If it is that wet I will just stay off it anyway.
