I wonder why the price drop? Coming out with a newer model? I was thinking about getting the 2 5AH brushless mower but the price difference is tempting.. Thoughts on which is better buy?

At $499 that’s tough to beat! You could buy that mower kit and a spare 5Ah battery for the same price as the 2x5Ah mower.

Yeah $250 cheaper goes a ways.. Im just wondering if I will kick myself for not getting the newer tech plus with the two 5ah batteries I could use in the Multi tool system I want to get.. Which I would not need to buy extra batteries with it.. However I am not fully committed to getting the lawnmower since I have no experience with the EGO tools yet and my Honda mower is still working well. 

It takes no more than 45 minutes to do our lawn so the 7.5ah battery should do that no problem?

Using a 5.0 battery on the power head is heavy on big jobs unless you use the backpack multilink to carry the battery. I use the 2.5 on my power head using pole saw or string trimmer attachment.

The other thing is that I might buy the snowblower for next year if I really go for it. I could get the blower without the 2 batteries so the 5AHs would cover it too.
