Technically yes, but you would need to take it apart each time. It doesn't "fold" without coming apart.

Yes, it splits into two pieces. Assembly/disassembly takes about 30 seconds, and the pieces are not heavy once separated.

Unless you are quite heavy (say 400 pounds +) or have mobility problems (you can't sit down and stand up without difficulty) then don't buy a Model E, buy a Model D instead. Mechanically the Model D is identical to the Model E, it just sits a little lower to the floor, but the Model D is smaller, cheaper, and the monitor arm moves (so you can adjust the monitor position to obtain the optimal angle - something the Model E does not allow you to do). The Model E is only really worthwhile as a purchase over the Model D for extremely heavy or severely mobility impaired individuals. You'll also find the Model D much easier to store. see less

You can break it in half easy enough, with two people it is easier, and it will fit in a closet, however I do not think it was intended to be stored as such. I would not buy it with that in mind. On the other hand it's a great machine.

Yes, the machine can be separated into two pieces and put into a closet. Personally, I do this only when I need the space for another purpose, say, a house guest.

Not really. It can be stood on it's end and then maybe put in a closet, or a corner.

The Model E can be separated into two pieces for storage.
