Hi Scott, yes, you can hang the mower from that handle. What a great question! We do want to offer some advice for hanging our EGO Power+ mower. We suggest you use a rubber coated dual hook like one from Rubbermaid. Here's a link for reference: http://thd.co/RiF5IE The storage hook should be mounted to a stud and not drywall. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
