They have the blower attachment too (but I didn't order one).

The release date for the high lift 21" blade that I pre-ordered from Amazon has a "release date" of April 20th, which has not changed since I placed the order.  Amazon's release date for the AH1500 RR head was pretty accurate, so I don't see why the 21" blade would be different.  Could it slip; sure!  Will it be the end of the world, not likely... could it possibly fix a lot of dissatisfied 21" (and 20") mower owners; maybe. 

Based on Ego getting blasted for posting a target release date, and then having it slip.  I would think the average consumer will be able to conclude that Ego is not likely to provide future delivery estimates for future products.  Which is too bad, as I like having the ability to see what's coming down the pipe, and then evaluating my options accordingly. 

The Multi-Tool Power Head is a good example, we knew about that one having a release date in 2017 probably a year ago.  Is Ego doing it perfect, of course not, but they are doing a pretty good job.

I called the UK this morning and they were already closed.  I KNOW if I order one they will be released here, it's the story of my life.

if you order it on April 19th, that will be right in time for Amazon to release on April 20th. =)

Got an update email from Amazon for the AB2101, "Friday, May 5, 2017 - Wednesday, May 10, 2017 "

And when I log into Amazon and check, it's ahead a day to: "Arriving May 4 - May 9"

Thanks, can you provide one more measurement, the height of the center section where it bolts to the motor?

Gee that looks like a manufacturing triumph - they should put that on that Magnificent Machines show!

The height of the center appears to be the same as the current blade. Although I am comparing it to the 21".

What is even better news is that it is the same offset as the 20" blade!  Thanks for running that to ground for me.
