I want the best deal for my money.
I had a electric Black and Decker mower for 12 years. It worked so good and lasted so long that I wanted to stick with the brand. I shopped around and didn't want to spend $350-$400 so I went on line and got a reconditioned one for half the price. It's basically new [...] I was mowing by that afternoon. I'm really happy with my decision.

Clean, quiet, with plenty of power
We have a small meadow in back of the house that this mower tamed without any problems. On the first pass I set the height to its highest setting and it did not bog down. On subsequent passes I was able to lower the cutting height. The mulching feature is especially practical and environmentally smart. The charging system is foolproof with the default being to simply leave the mower plugged in all the time when not in use. Nice: no battery tending.

Quiet, plenty of power, no cord, and no gasoline!

Great lawnmower
The best thing is no oil gas or spark plug and no pulling to start it.

The best Electric mower on the market.
Everything about this mower, is superior to other mowers. Perfect for the elderly and women to keep their yards in good shape. The removeable battery is a plus and the handle adjustment makes it perfect for all size of people to use, Thanks for a great mower, Wayne D.

I would buy this mower again!!
This mower is a well built unit. easy to clean with a water hose. truely low maintanance as long as you keep it clean. used it only once so far, and it was very easy to operate and to push around my lawn. I don't have a big yard, I would say about 2,000sq feet and I had plenty battery life left. and most fumes!

Good Value - Environmentally friendly
Our lawn got out of hand this year due to much rain and the break down of our old mower. This B&D mower came and tackled the tall stuff with grace and ease. The battery is heavy! And as a consequence, so is the mower when the battery is in use. That being said, the mower does our large lawn with one charge.

I have been led to believe that when I need to replace the battery, it will be costly to do so. Hopefully that will be a long way down the road.

Quiet with Long Lasting Charge
I replaced my 23 year old gas-powered Toro push mower. I was surprised by the length of time on the battery - over 1 hour and still had plenty left. I had been concerned about the extra weight, but I found it as easy to maneuver as my old push mower, easier to start, and I expect, easier to maintain. It has a smaller cutting swath (19" vs. 21") so I will have to do more passes on the lawn. This was my first mow of the season, so there were some tall patches of grass, but it handled those, and the sticks on the lawn, quite easily. Overall, I am very pleased with the purchase.

Better than expected
This mower cuts and mulches better than my old self-propelled gas guzzler and is easier to handle. I was concerned that the narrower cutting width would mean more passes and more time to mow, but this has been negligible. I still need to get used to overlapping the right amount - there is a bigger gap than I'm used to.
I have cut my 1/4-acre lawn twice so far, and I got farther the second time before running out of juice, so battery life seems to be improving. I can do my big back yard on a single charge, but not the front yet. So far a single charge will get me about as far as a tank of gas on my old mower.
I have been impressed by the power. My gas mower used to bog down mulching thick clover and dense grass, but this has done a bit better. Just take it slow on the thick stuff. The clippings cake up pretty heavily under the deck.

One of the few cons relates to the products heaviness. Is this lawn mower self propelling like some gas mowers? I have a few small hilly areas to mow and wonder if this would be the right tool for the job. Very intrigued otherwise!
