Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Orville Junk. Run do not walk away from this waste of time lawnmower
After only a few times using it, the angled hook connecting the starter cable to the handle bar, which you need to pull back to keep the mower running, broke off at he angle. It is cheaply made (cast, not forged) made and was too brittle to hold up. I tried to get Home Depot to replace it and they said all of the B&D lawn mowers have exactly the same design defect and they would not recommend B&D lawnmowers "to my worst enemy, they are such a piece of garbage." I wish they had told me that before I bought it. I see other comments experience exactly the same design-related defect.

I had anxiety about getting an electric mower, as it was my first. I was worried about assembly (no tools on hand) and power issues with it. With time and patience, this mower was easy to assemble. The "biggest" issue was the handles and their locks. After assembly, the mower handled the cutting of my modest size lawn very well; it was definitely more powerful than my reel mower! This mower is easy to start and easy to maneuver. I only used the side discharge/ mulching feature, which works well .
Compared to gas mowers that I have used before, Black and Decker's 13 Amp mower is lighter, cleaner, and works just as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Accurate descriptions, does the job, worth the price.
Performance, the machine works awesome, it is electric so expect wiggling around with the cable, until you LEARN how to move the thing around.
I used it on uneven slopes, thick tall grass, in other words, abnormal conditions, and it performed well.
Easy to set up, easy to get it running for my first time ever using a mower.
Noise: Its not like you will be mowing grass at 3 am right?
The bag really collects grass effectively, so that is awesome.
Mulching option is really awesome too, it just chews the grass until its almost reduced to nothing
Durability, have only owned it for 5 days, used it once so nothing on that.
Edge max is really cool, it really goes deep into those corners where some others may not.
If the grass is too thick and the you notice the machine is struggling, slow down your pace, the blade will cut through eventually.

I had a Black & Decker lawn hog electric mower for 10 years that died. I bought this to replace it. It will take some getting used to. The biggest thing so far is the cord plug...it hangs down from the starter. I had to wrap my extension cord around the handle as well as the figure 8 they recommend in the manual to keep it from pulling out. The old one had a T bar to loop the cord around & lock it. The start mechanism is different also. Before I could start the mower one handed by flipping the lever up with my thumb & then grasping it to start. Now you have to push a button with one hand & then grasp the handle lever with the other. I also discovered that when I had the cord 'laying' on the lever as I pulled it across the handle, the weight of the cord would keep the mower running when I released the handle. A possible hazard. It is lighter which sometimes feels less durable but I have only used it a couple times, This model is several inches wider than my old one which means less passes & time. I still liked the old one.

Easy to find what we were looking for online, and ordering was equally as easy. Received mower very quickly. Put together and mowed away! Works great!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by chris liked it, but it failed and I'm waiting on second mower
Ordered to replace another electric mower that the wheels broke off (it was old! but I really like electric mowers 'cause they're lighter, no gas/oil/spark plugs or exhaust, and our lawn is relatively small). This one looks fancy and mows well (more maneuverable than other mower). However, after 3 mows, started smelling hot plastic, and then within a few minutes, motor started smoking/sparking and melted down. Home depot took return no questions asked and I've ordered another hoping I just got unlucky first time (I've never had an electric appliance fail like that before).

This mower works great! My lawn is big so I have to dump the bag a few times, but it is worth it in the end. It cuts beautifully and is fairly easy to manage.
