Is there a way to know if the self-propelled mowers in stock at Home Depot are the newest model available?

Hi Leslie, there have been no changes to the design of the 21" SP mower since its release last spring. Even the kit option with 7.5Ah battery is the same.

The only small change is that Ego started including the side discharge chute with the mower. If you happen to get one without the chute and need it (most people mulch or bag) just call Ego Customer Service and request it while registering for the warranty.

There is a $50 promotion on the mowers right now, that's about the only "new" thing to report. :-)

Mine came with a side discharge chute. The paperwork, instructions etc., were marked sep 2016.  It was purchased 3/23

I bought one a couple of days ago and it was dated June 2016 so I did not get the side discharge -- but I've ordered it.  And anyway, so far the mulching is working very well -- as is everything else.  I'm getting used to the slight lag (fraction of a second) on the self-propulsion. The quietness is amazing.  FYI, at two of the Home Depots I went to the sale price was not presented on the mower but was reflected at the cash register.  The third HD had the reduced price listed but had no mowers available. There was no indication of how long the reduced price would hold.
