I think the brushless motor is the main item making the new steel deck mower more expensive. 

The smaller cut area is based on the battery size 5.0 v 7.5 and not the mower itself.

Hope that answers your questions.

Home Depot's 1/4" acre rating is probably about as valuable as the paper it's written on.

I'm always laughing at their poster board info sheets that rate the "duty" of the mower and what size yard they think it will cut. Not useful information.
