What's the difference between these two models besides the one inch difference in blade? HD has a $50 price difference, but I can't tell by the descriptions why the price is that much different.

Longer blade required a a larger diameter housing/frame. Don’t know if electronics & motor are the same, but may be slightly different as they have to deal with a blade with more mass.

Different frame completely. Different motor also. The 21 has a slightly more powerful motor.

But if I was you, I'd get the self propelled model because the battery itself is worth the extra 100.00.

Up to you.

I have both models and get a huge amount of mowing exercise with them. The larger model has a wonderful automatic ramp up of power when under load. For example, I have a mossy area of lawn that completely stalls out my smaller mower, but doesn't even appreciably affect the larger one.

In addition, if you get the high-lift blade, it will pack your clippings bag really tight before it needs emptied. The high-lift blade seems to pull unwanted seeds and even insects off of the grass. I love it. I recommend an additional battery though.
