Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CycleGirl Disappointed in performance and in B&D customer service
When I first got this mower in the heat of last summer, I noted that it left a row of clippings ejected out the right side of the mower. This happened whether I was mulching or bagging (rear bag). The amount was annoying, but something I could live with. However, the amount of clippings ejected when mowing this spring and summer's more lush grass, was well beyond what I could tolerate. I always had to rake afterwards. I contacted Black and Decker, who provided the location of an approved local service center. That service center sent it to the nearest Black and Decker center, who after 3 weeks, told me they found nothing wrong and returned it unchanged. My previous mower (also a cordless electric) did a good job, and my back-up reel mower does as good or better a job than this one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Seattlemom Exactly what I needed!
I finally decided to upgrade from the reel mower that I've been using for years. I love that I can mow my yard without breathing in gas fumes, and that I'm not attached to a cord. My first mow was through some pretty overgrown grass, and although I had to take a couple passes over it, the mower did great and my lawn looks beautiful. It is pretty heavy (especially coming from a reel!) and my yard is really bumpy, so I think I'll eventually regret not spending that extra money for the self-propelled model... but I'm happy for now. And I love that I can fold the handles down to fit the mower into a tight spot in my small garage!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rich000 Does a great job, exceeds 1/3 acre rating
So far so good. I have a half acre, most of which is mowed with my riding mower, but I still need a walk behind to get around the house perimeter, and between a large number of pine trees and other obstacles. These locations are too awkward for the rider to reach. Nevertheless, I wanted to see just how long this would last on a full charge. As it turns out I was able to mow my entire half acre, with the power starting to drop off only at the very end. No earplugs needed with this one. A battery gauge would be good, but you can tell by listening for the most part.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by beothor13 Great Mower for my small yard & bad shoulder!
This mower is great! Comes almost completely assembled, easy start (no more killing my bad shoulder trying to pull start mower!), battery was ready in a couple hours after unpacking & putting it on charger, and mower has more power than I thought a battery powered mower would have! Mower did not have any problem cutting down the 10 inches of grass that had grown since I mowed last! I had to go slower than normal and empty the grass catcher often but it made it through the whole yard without recharging the battery. Great that mower folds and stores upright. And no more gas and oil - or running the mower until it runs out of gas so it doesn't go bad in the mower. Have mowed several times since initial mowing and mower now zips right through the grass. Definitely glad I made purchase - hopefully mower will last for years.

Disappointed. Ordered online and had it shipped to my local Home Depot. Picked it up and unpacked it to find a tire was off. Started to install the handle just to find it didn't fit. There was 1/2 inch gap on both side between the handle and the mounting bracket. Contacted Home Depot to return for replacement. It wasn't in stock! Not available on line ! They couldn't fix it. Returned for a refund. Very disappointed i Black & Decker. Where is the quality control?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by flipgirlmom Electric Mowers are Great
I have had mine for 5 years, replaced the blade twice and just recently bought a new battery for it. Although the old battery still works my 1/4 acre yard has gotten thicker and mowing area has increased due to removal of some bushes so I wanted the extra assurance that I could mow entire yard in one session. For father's day I ordered an identical mower for my 80 yrs young father. He was having trouble pulling the string on his gas powered one. He AND my mom love using this electric cordless mower. It is easy to start, use and can be wheeled into the garage, plugged in and their done. They can do their entire yard on one battery charge.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tradrgym Second one, Fit my needs perfectly
Strong points include easy height adjustment, no fooling with gas or oil, and consistent instant trouble free operation. This is my second B/D electric mower. After 7 years the first one has nearly worn out so it was probably about the same price to buy a new one versus fixing wheels, blade, skirt and a new battery. I have a premier grass lawn and also several larger areas that are heavy weeds. This unit handles either with ease. Although 70, I still like the exercise of a push mower, so that is not an issue.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BradySW Works Great!
I looked at a number of electric mowers, and this one is the only model I found that had everything I was looking for. Its a good size mower and is extremely easy to use. It might look in the pictures like it would be a heavy machine, but its actually very light and handles very well. Its easy as can be to switch out batteries for larger mows, I bought an extra battery for that purpose. Its also nice that it easily collapses to fit in an out-of-the-way place in my garage. All in all, I'm quite pleased.
