I'm looking at the self propelled model LM2102SP. I have a large trampoline that I'd rather not move. The height to the top of the trampoline is 33". How low does the handle go on this model? I can't find the answer on homedepot's PDF and I tried chatting with homedepot who didn't know the answer either. Thx.

Just a logical suggestion to spray kill the grass underneath the trampoline and mulch it; you won't have to be dealing with mowing there.

I’m hoping not to kill the grass. I used to mow it’s with my old gas powered wheel wackier but it’s seen better days. It’s handle easily folded and could reach underneath.

I just measured my 21" non-sp model with the handle in its lowest operating position and the cut height set to 1. The handle height at the top of the upswept handle is 37".

Note that I just went out and measured to the bottom of the upswept handle and that measurement is 31". So, you could get the entire length of the mower under the trampoline. Just the upswept part of the handle would stop you from going under any further.

Awesome, thanks so much. Looks like it will just make it.

Just measured my 21" SP with the mowing height at lowest setting of 1 and handle set at lowest height. The height from ground to top of handle is 37".

Oregon Mike, you did note your measurement was to the bottom of the handle.

William, I made 2 posts about measurements and the first one which came out 37" was to the top of the handle which is what I said. You confirmed the same dimension. 
The second post was to the bottom of the handle.

Always good when there's confirmation on measurements; like wood workers say, "measure twice, cut once".
