I've never used lawn mowers as comfortable as these two mowers are for tall users. I'm 6' 4" tall, and I've used mowers whose handlebars don't even come close to being high enough to be comfortable to mow with for me. On these two Ego mowers, when I raise the handlebars to the highest setting. I find it extremely comfortable.

Great feedback! The original 20" plastic deck mower only had two handle height settings and taller users found it a bit low. User feedback here is largely responsible for the triple height setting that debuted on the 21" mowers last year.

I live my 20" plastic deck, but agree that the handle settings leave me wanting.  I won't go metal because of the weight, but glad it got addressed.

I can't wait for the next gen mowers to be released.  Have a funny feeling that some things we've been wanting will polish off the lineup rather nicely.
