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

All of the other contributors below have made useful comments with which I agree. I would add only that it makes more sense to use two 50' cords, rather than one 100' cord - try as you might, you will eventually run over the cord, and it is cheaper to replace one 50' cord.

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

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 50-feet or thereabouts. 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.

YOU supply the cord--any length you want--as long as it will deliver the amperage and voltage required--Otherwise, expect the motor to burn out! I use this guide:
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 143 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by The Little Mower That Could 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. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Newer okay 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. August 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lawn mower 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! September 6, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 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). August 3, 2016
