I have a LM2101.  Unless I mow frequently, it can bog down on deeper grass.  In different places I have seen that it has either a 700w or a 750w motor; while the LM2142 has a 1200w motor.  I don't care about the self propelled feature, or the longer running time; I just want more power.
Does the LM2142SP have more power?  I suppose some of that 1200w goes to propelling it, but if I don't use the self propulsion, does the power go to the cutting blade?

I have the ego snow blower.  When it starts to bog down, it suddenly gets more power; presumably by using both batteries. (it doesn't do that with one battery) Does the lawn mower do that also?

Thanks much

Yes the 2142 mower uses the same "Peak Power Technology" that the snow blower uses to get optimum power by utilizing both batteries.

1200w brushless motor is much more powerful than the 1000W brushed motor on the LM2100.
