Hi Patti, there are two handle height settings on the original 20" mower, with the higher one being equivalent to my old gas Honda mower. The lower setting is far too low for me.

The new 21" mower adds a third handle height setting. I was hoping this would have meant a slightly higher top height setting, but sadly the two top and middle height is identical to the settings on the original mower. So the third setting is even lower than the low setting, which was already too low for me.

I would describe the three settings on the 21" as average, low, and munchkin. The lowest height setting literally makes the mower comfortable to hold in a kneeling position. It has to be the lowest handle height of any mower on the market, or very close.

If the 20" height isn't low enough for you then try the 21" model. If the 21" isn't low enough for you, try stilts.
