Answer: 
Yes this mower can be used as a mulcher without the bag. It actually comes with a mulching insert already installed. It was very easy to remove the insert and attach the bag to collect clippings. I have not used it as a mulcher yet but as easy as it was to remove the insert, I imagine it would be just as easy to put it back in. The instruction manual that comes with the mower is very helpful.

Answer: 
We use it frequently as a 'mulcher'. You merely remove the bagger and place the blocking device into the rear discharge chute and close the flap. It's that easy. I have no immediate plans to use the side discharge feature, by the way.

The mower comes already mostly assembled. You will have to attach the handles, and the bag, but the instruction manual that comes with the mower describes these steps clearly. By having you attach the handles, you also learn how to fold the handles so it makes it easier to store.
A suggestion to have someone help you the first time installing the handles. You need 3 hands to hold the handles in place and attach the hardware. My 14 year old daughter helped me with ours. It was easy with her help.
Operation is a snap. Once it's plugged in, there is a safety button that you need to press at the same time you pull the "ON" lever (they call it a bail). Once the mower is going, you can release the safety button and only need to hold down the bail. Releasing the bail shuts the mower off immediately. Starting it up again requires you to push the safety button down again, but I can see why they included this feature. You don't want kids playing with the mower and accidentally starting it, because it's very easy to start. Read Less

Answer: 
Electrical cord size depends on the length you intend or need to use to mow your grounds.
The fact that this mower will draw up to 13-amps requires at least a 14-gauge cord for lengths up to about 100-feet. If you require more than 100-feet, then go with one(s) that are 12-gauge or even 10-gauge if over 150-feet You may find it difficult to locate a 150-foot 10-gauge extension cord, so use multiple cords

Of course it won't hurt to use this heavier gauge cording for shorter lengths either. If you were to use the 16-guage cord for over 50 feet, there may not be enough amperage carried by the cord to properly operate the mower, and it could damage the mower's motor
by not allowing enough current to meet the mower's needs.

MAXIMUM DISTANCES: UP TO 15 AMPS: 25' to 50' = 14 Gauge and 50' to 100' = 12 Gauge
Get one rated for OUTDOORS and avoid green or dark colors (you need to see the cord).

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 131 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I'm thrilled! This is such a great mower. My last Black and Decker electric mower lasted about 20 years, so I have high hopes for this one as well. It was a breeze to assemble. I don't use the grass catcher because I prefer the mulching feature, so about all I had to do was put the handle on and plug it in. It cuts amazingly! It's light weight and easy to get up and down the porch stairs where it is kept. It cuts really close to the edge and the height adjust is very easy to maneuver. It has a lot of power for an electric mower, too. One pass is all it takes. I would definitely highly recommend this mower! Thanks, Black and Decker for another great product! June 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice mower for smaller yards Light weight and easy to use. Assembly was minimal and a breeze to do. Mowing a half acre of rough ground with steep drops into woods and because it is light weight it can be done with little effort. Feel safer using this mower than my old self propelled gas mower which was heavy and cumbersome on steep inclines and valleys. July 19, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Lawn Mower I had trouble getting the mower set up and started the first time, through no fault of Home Depot. I called Home Depot for advice and they were NOT helpful at all. Ended up taking it to a nearby hardware store where they were most gracious. I will be doing more shopping there, less shopping at Home Depot. The mower, however, is a good product, mows very well, not so heavy to push. Hard to turn in small places, however. Still a good buy for the money. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Getting past the klutz stage Going to a corded lawn mower requires rethinking the way you mow the lawn. If I had; I'd still have a 100 ft cord. My ears don't ring after using it, and my hands have a sense of feelin them. The mower does an excellent job. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WHAT A DEAL I bought this mower to replace my push reel mower. I didn't want to purchase a gas mower due to more maintenance and gas storage, not to mention the noxious fumes. I am very satisfied. It mows as good, if not better than a gas mower. It is SO quiet as well, which is great. If you are wanting to get a corded electric mower, do not look any further, this is the one. July 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fist electric mowing machine I ever had... After looking at other people's reviews (Web and YouTube), I decided to purchase this machine to give it a try. I live in a corner house with about a little less than a quarter acre of flat-land grass. The machine performs very well and the cords (two 100 ft ones) are not really a problem as long as you plan the cutting pattern ahead, always away from the cord source. Other than that, I love the fact that I don't have to worry about gas, oil mixtures, and the machine is so quiet that I can mow the lawn after I come from work, 7 or 8 PM. It sounds like a house floor vacuum. I have also tried on small branches and it pulverizes them. I have to be careful because the machine body is a hard plastc. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for an alternative to.the loud gas machines. June 28, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by You Get What You Pay For The mower stopped working during the 5th use. Same issue as many others. I decided to just return it to elimate the risk of getting another dud. Cheap price for a poorly made product. My yard is only about 1000 SF so its use was very limited. July 17, 2016
