Battery powered lawn mower
We are longtime users of a reel mower, but when our lawn was diseased, parched, and patchy, a lawn specialist told us to use a mower that could be raised to 3-4 inches. We cannot do that with our reel mower, so having sod put in, we decided to give a rechargeable battery mower a shot. This Black and Decker is very close to how it's described. Simple to put together out of the box, and after the first full charge, it had power left over having mowed our entire lawn on one battery.

We may look for a matching blower/vacuum to maximize the functionality of the batteries (there are two).

The one drawback is that the clippings fill the smallish bag pretty quickly, and you have to empty it often. This is a small annoyance, however.

The plastic body may not stand up to long-term banging around, but it's great at resisting moisture. The mower starts easily, and keeps its power for as long as the battery stays charged. Generally, one pass cuts the grass evenly.

After two uses on our new sod, we like the mower very much, but are guarded about the caveats others mentioned in reviews read elsewhere--battery not holding a charge, having to charge the batteries once a month during the winter, etc. We only miss the extra exercise of using our old fashioned reel mower.

Ok
This mower is less than half the mower the standard 36v 20 inch mower is. I am glad I did not give my old 36v to my neighbor. It might help if the mover could be set a higher level than the highest it has available. 2 batteries is a joke. Black and Decker must have foreseen suckers buying this and then having to buy another tool, or battery to do the job the old 36V does with standard batteries.

Pros
Lightweight
decent mower in the right application
Great mower if you have a small lawn and cut on a regular basis. This mower is no good if you have more than 1/4 acre and if it gets long. The battery life is not that good- why they give you two when you purchase it and the bag is small. Mowing height is limited, but maybe that is because the ability to cut it is also.. Overall, great in city applications and small yards.

Pros
Lightweight
Not Impressed
This is a pretty large down-grade from my previous B&D battery powered lawnmower. Cheap and lightweight. Bag is super small and fills up frequently. The bag is hard to empty because there is a large gap at the top so grass falls out easily. Batteries charge quickly but don't last as long as my previous mower. No mulching feature which is a huge negative.

I wish I had my old mower back but I "up-traded" for this model. Not a great decision. I likely will buy a new mower this season as this one isn't going to work.

how do you attach the lower handle to the mower?
Captain on May 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Lift lower handle into place making sure one of the three notches on the lower handle line up with the notch located on the base of the mower. Ensure each side of the lower handle is set on the same notch. Close the handle height adjust levers. As you close each, make sure the teeth are engaged. If the connection between the handle and lever is too tight or loose, open the lever and adjust the depth of the lever by turning the lever. Close it again until the teeth are fully clasped and each lever stays securely closed.

How do you attach the lower handle to the mower? The manual says lift the handle but the handle isn't attached to the mower and there is an orange lever sticking out. I need to take the lever out in order to put in the handle. This isn't right since how can I screw back the handle.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
