Ever since I decided to purchase my Ego LM2100 I've been watching YouTube video's to learn as much as I could about what I was about to spend my hard earned money on. One of the video's show's a guy in a large garage explaining the advantages of the 21” SP version versus the 21” push version. In his explanation he states that the SP version has a 1000 watt motor versus a 750 watt motor in the push mower. I've tried to verify this in the owners manual but couldn't find anything that either confirmed or reputed the claim. It is my understanding that the SP version actually has two motors, one to propel the mower and one to turn the blade that cuts the grass. If that's the case I can't understand why a larger motor would be needed presumably to cut the grass as he doesn't even mention that there are two separate motors. Can anyone tell me if (a) the SP version does in fact have a larger motor and (b) why a larger motor would be needed if there are in fact two motors? I can understand the benefits of a larger motor but why would a larger grass cutting motor would be needed when SP and push version have identical blade sizes. This is just one of those nagging things that I came across and might be confusing or even misleading to some people.

Simple answer for you.  It does indeed have a 1000 watt cutting motor verses the non-self propelled version that has a 750 watt cutting motor
