Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cybil1920 Great Mower for a Great Price
This is a great lawn mower for small yards, so light and easy to push, no problem at all going up inclines. The cutting height adjustment lever has three settings and is conveniently located on the top of the mower, making it a breeze to change. There is a hitch built into the handle for securing the cord, insuring that it won’t dislodge from the plug while mowing. As with any plug in mower, the cord can be annoying but all in all, this was a good choice for my small yard, plenty of power and a great price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 perfect for small lawn requirements
This is an excellent machine for seniors who may need a light-weight lawn mower to keep small lawns in shape. It is easy to use, does a good job and is easily stored. Since it is electric, there is no need to worry about storing gas and there are no fumes. I have a brand new one but I have had this same product over the last 20 years and always thought it the very best.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Josh I almost returned it, I am so glad I did not!
I have always liked the electric mowers and needed a new one for my new house.
I ordered it and on the day it was to arrive I read the info on it and noticed that the maximum electric cord length was 100 feet. I needed almost 200 feet to do my lawn. When it arrived I put it in my car and was going to bring it to the store for a refund.
The next day I decided to give it a try and hooked up the 100 ft extension just to see how the power was. Then I added the second 100 foot extension cord and it seemed to have the same power. It worked great and I love it!
My lawn is mostly weeds and they were very tall. The mower worked perfectly!!!!!!!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Swampdog Light weight
I bought this mower because I needed something light to cut the hill front of my house, since my old 2 cycle finally died on me.. A weed-eater was out of the question because its too steep to safely stand on and I throw grass all over my neighbors cars. I am able to stand on the sidewalk at the bottom of my hill and push the mower up and cut half the hill. I then do the same from the top to finish the job. The light weight of this mower is a plus for me. It cuts excellent. Only negative is the cheap starter handle that feels like it will break at any moment. The body and handle are very sturdy. Overall I really like the mower and would recommend it to anyone needing a mower for lighter duty cutting.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Lightweight, easy to assemble, good for light duty.
I bought this mower to replace a cordless electric mower.
What I like:
It's lightweight. because there's no heavy batteries and electronics, and the deck is plastic.
It's easy to assemble. I was mowing within 15 minutes of opening the box. No tools required.
It's quiet. You can carry on a conversation while mowing with this thing, should you want to.
There's only one safety interlock. Pull the handle, the mower starts. Let go, it stops. Uber-simple.
No worrying about running down the batteries halfway through your lawn. If you're plugged in, you're mowing. Take all the time you want.
No batteries to replace. Replacing dead batteries a couple of times in any cordless mower will quickly exceed the cost of a corded electric. And you will need to replace them.
What I'm not so thrilled about, but can live with:
The mower will bog down if your grass is really long or thick. This was also an issue with the cordless mower I replaced, and to be fair, this mower actually does better than the cordless, and I let the lawn go too long.
The whole deck, including the side discharge piece and the height adjustment detents, is plastic. Again, to be fair, the whole world is made of plastic, but I can sense that I'm going to have to be gentle with this mower so I don't snap things off that didn't hold up even on a steel deck.
In general, this mower does the job. Corded electric mowers are a little tricky to get used to, the biggest issue being the cord. You need to plan your route around your yard so you're not tripping over, or worse, running over your cord. And you need to make sure you are using the proper gauge of cord. For this mower, a 100 foot, 14 gauge cord plugged directly into an outlet is a good choice. If you use an inadequate cord, or multiple cords connected to each other, you will overheat the motor and it will fail. I suspect that some of the reviewers here who smoked their mowers were using inadequate cords. This mower is the lowest-amp model available, so if you need more power for thicker or longer grass, consider the higher-amp models. Electric mowers will never replace gas mowers in terms of raw power and versatility, but if you just need to mow the average lawn once a week without storing gasoline and breathing fumes, this mower is a good choice.

This replace an older electric mower with a smaller cutting blade. It was a great upgrade. The plastic body makes it much lighter than the old, metal one it replaced. It works flawlessly for my small townhouse yard. No hassling with gas, oil, or a pull cord. It's cheaper than just about all gas mowers and has almost zero maintenance (costs or effort)... and maybe zero for me as my yard is so small I don't know if or when I'll need to sharpen the blade.
The only con, and it's more of an FYI, is that the instructions for installing the "shroud hole cover" are extremely poor. I couldn't figure out how to 'snap' them in, so I left them off. It's not clear what their purpose is or, more specifically, what will be sacrificed by not having them.

The mower is light weight and easy to use. Just right for my small yard. I just hope it lasts as long as the Black and Decker I had for the last 20 years.
