Customer Questions & Answers

Does it come with batt. and charger?

Many retailers are selling mowers only to get you in the door thinking you have found a good deal only to find it's no deal at all because it does not come with a charger or battery, close to $200 additional charge.
Asked by: norcalkid
The battery is already installed. Plug-in charger overnight and good to go next day or sooner

18 in. 36-Volt Cordless Electric Lawn Mower is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 254.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mower, No Hassles This mower has power without a cord to get in the way. No need for gas. Easy to push and maneuver. Was easy to assemble too. The safety key didn't come attached, so I tied it to the mower handle with a ribbon for convenience. Mows front & back yards are one charge (we have a small yard). Makes life very easy. I highly recommend it. My last mower warned the battery might only last 4 years, but if you keep it plugged in when not in use, it lasts a dozen easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mower The only reason we purchased this mower (again) was because the Key in the old one would not fit anymore. Even a new key sent by the factory would not work. We really don't know what to do with the old mower - it is still serviceable, battery is still good (after 4 years), and it worked like a charm. These are the best mowers I've ever had (I'm 76) and am sorry to have the old one just sit there. However, we are pleased to have another, and this time we purchased insurance. I would recommend this mower for anyone looking for a care-free, reliable, no electric cord to get in the way, and quiet battery-powered mower. Except for the key problem, these mowers are reliable and fail-safe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mowing is a dream with this wonderful electric mower! I'm a widow. I've never mowed a yard before but I bought my small house with a small yard in front and back in need of mowing. I bought this lovely cordless mower because I didn't want to mess with gas, oil, etc. and I couldn't be happier! It mows my entire yard on one charge. No mess, no fuss. Quiet as mowers go. Very very nice. I wholeheartedly recommend this mower.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great mower, but not powerful enough for my corner lot Great mower, but not capable of handling large lots. My corner lot is about 7600 sq ft, and this thing can't handle it. I have to divide mowing into two days, one for the front and one for the back. In peak grass growing season, if I've let the grass get too high, it struggles to cut even with a full charge. I often have to tilt up the front to help it with built-up mulch. I haven't tried bagging, but I suspect it would handle that easier. It's very light-weight and not needing to keep gas/oil on hand is convenient. For tiny lots, I'd absolutely recommend it. Me, I'll be replacing it with a more powerful gas mower soon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product was easy to setup and use - was mowing after the first charge Mower was simple to set up. let charge overnight before using - worked flawlessly. Mowed for about an hour without any issues. one yard at a 5 setting and one at a 3 setting. Mulching feature works great. I have not bagged any mowing yet - not sure that i will since mulch feature works so well. Only issue i have had so far is at the lower settings and mulching you sometimes have to walk a bit slower to not bog the mower down. Plug mower back up after using and leave it plugged until i mow again and easily get a hour worth of time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product if you don't have thick bermuda style grass This is a well made product but it doesn't have the power needed for thick bermuda grass. Even when cutting only 1/2" or so, if the grass is thick you need to go real real slow to keep it from bogging down. Works real well on rye grass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great device Bought 6/29/12 today 7/29/12. It cut my lawn right out of the box. The charging seems quick and it's a bonus that it doesn't have to be unplugged from the charger ever. That first time my lawn had gotten high and so I hooked on the grass catcher. When done I went to empty the grass catcher to find there was nothing in it. What fooled me was there were no remains of cuttings at all! Of course it comes with the mulcher attachment already inserted, if you want to use the catcher your remove it...but why bother. It's like fertilizer! Also there are many height adjustmets. And I like its sleek look. Parts and stuff I'll have to see about down the road. In other mowers I've always been able to sharpen or fix it by myself or with a machinest's help.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very powerful machine. You could say it's just a regular electric mower. It has just two discharge options: bag or mulch, but that should be enough. The description says it can discharge on the side but I haven't found how, I haven't looked to hard either but I believe that's not the case. It's really easy to assemble as the main part is assembled and one just need to attach the handle bar and attach the switch to it. Took me about 15 min. It's kind of heavy. The bad is pretty normal in size for a mower this big. The battery has lasted a max of 1.5 hrs or heavy work. I had a lot with pretty tall weeds (2-3 ft) and I wanted to try this on it and worked just fine. You need to be gentle though, as I was leaning forward to raise the mower on top of the weeds so the weeds didn't get stuck under it. I'm really pleased with this machine as has worked very good for this really hard work. See pics attached.
