I am in the market for a new mower and want the latest and greatest.  Frankly, i am turned off by self propelled as I like the added exercise.  I heard somewhere that the 21" self propelled is actually more powerful than the standard 21".  Is that accurate?  Are there any performance benefits to the self propelled version aside from the bigger battery?

Jeffrey, Ego advertises the 21" SP at 1000W, and the 21" at 700W. For reference, the 20" is advertised at 600W.

The SP is more powerful, but also weighs more than the regular model due to the SP hardware. If you don't need the extra run time of the larger 7.5Ah battery you may be better off with the 21" 5Ah kit.

If you have a larger lawn or have very thick turf, the SP kit is the way to go.
