    Worst Mower Ever
    The bag keeps popping off. The handle bar is too low. Not a lot of power even with the right extension cord. Blade wore out so I bought a new one. Now that the new blade is on, the mower vibrates so hard it's difficult to push. Wish I could get my $ back.

    It's electric


    Everything else.

    Buy it if you like throwing money away.
    I bought it less than a year ago and has already stopped working.

    Not as loud as other mowers but that may be due to the weakness of the motor and the reason why it died less than a year later.


    short life of product.

    Works Well
    I have now had this mower going on its' third year. The quality of cuts has decrease each year. But I just purchased a new blade and that should be good for two more years (not sure how to sharpen, paid for a $21 OEM replacement). It still has the power as the first year. I don't have acres to mow and this mower suites me fine.

    It is lightweight, not excessively noisy, no gas fumes, stops on a dime, starts instantly. It's Green, aka electric. Cuts well.


    The cord can get in the way and takes effort in being aware of where the cord is. In this third year, the back flap has completely come off, but it is cheap enough to replace, cheaper than a new mower.

    Ready to be untethered
    As it was my first lawn mower I thought I found I good simple, environmentally friendly mower to cut my 1/3 acre. Although it felt like a toy and slowed in tough, thick grass I patiently accepted the results. This being the second year, I am exasperated by the time it tacks to finish the job - between wrestling with the cord (which if not careful uproots plantings) and just doesn't mow evenly and effectively. I'm ready for the real deal, however environmentally unkind, and buy a gas mower to get the job done right.

    Maintenance free and light enough to handle. Best for smallish unchallenged lots. Relatively well built overall.


    Uneven cutting, lacks sufficient power to lift grass into mower to cut evenly. Takes longer to mow than it should between tethered by a cord, going over same areas a few times and small deck coverage.

    Please save yourself problems. Do not purchase this mower!!!! I have nothing but problems. I will give some credit -- it is light weight; however, it is very difficult to use, it doesn't hold a sharp blade, it "misses" as you cut a path and without the blade it leaves "bunches" of grass on the lawn. Save your money -- get a lawnboy or something.

    It has a pretty color.

    Do Not Buy
    Good for a very very small yard that is perfectly flat, with perfect turf, that doesn't grow.

    No gas or oil needed. That was nice.


    It is a plastic piece of low quality junk. You will not get 2-3 years out of it. The plastic height adjustment will not stay in place. The very very cheap plastic mount for the blade split immediately and cannot be be found. There is a fan underneath meant to ? cool the electric motor that lost four of its seven vanes. I have yet to find a replacement. The blades are next to impossible to find in Lowes or other stores. The handle assembly continually throws nuts and bolts. The orange cover has to be removed about every 4th or 5th use and caked up clippings cleaned out. (it looked like a birds nest inside) It is under powered, you have to use this mower either more frequently than you would a gas mower or go over the same cut twice.

    Clean, quiet, weakish
    I was willing to work with this mower because I appreciate its lack of fumes, relative lack of noise, and lack of gasoline and oil consumption. However, I am unhappy because the grass catcher falls off all the time. The grass catcher is hooked over a bar that is able to slide too far to the left, I believe because a plastic stop of some sort broke. This happened within the first season of use. Also, a different B&D electric mower model tended to slip out of the desired height adjustment after a few seasons, and since this mower uses the same mechanism, I wouldn't be surprised if it winds up having the same problem. I'm kind of regretting this purchase.

    Quiet Clean (doesn't use gasoline) Maybe cheaper to maintain (doesn't use gasoline or oil) Mulching mode Instant on and off


    Slow to mow (cord hassles, narrow deck, weak motor?). Plastic parts wear, bend, or break too easily. Grass catcher is small.

    One Year Later
    Well here it is one year later and I still love this mower. It still gives a great cut and I didn't sharpen the blade once yet. I use it on a third of an acre, split between the front and back yard. I used it in the Fall. I set it on 5 and it picked up my leaves I had less raking/ work. Just wanted you to know its still going strong. As long as you don't have to use anything longer then a 100 ft cord you'll have great power. I do mulch at times, as long as the grass isn't damp or wet the mulcher works well without the thrower, But if grass is damp it clumps. I'll write again next yr, unless it conks out before, then I'll update. Other then that nothing bad to say. ( suggestion; how about a new model with the mulch thrower included and an attached edger. all in one. )

    Still going strong after one yr. No gas / oil needed, no spark plug. Just plug and go. good for the enviorment.


    mulch thrower should be included. I have nothing bad to say this yr.

    I thought this was a terrific little mower for a woman. I love the fact that it's electric and I don't have to deal with gas/spark plugs/oil, etc. The mower is also very lightweight for easy mowing. However, the blade just isn't sharp enough. I've used it only 3 times and all 3 times, I've had to go back over what I just mowed because it misses a lot of the grass. At first I thought it was me so I paid more attention to how I was mowing but it's clearly the mower that's missing the grass. If I want to be sure I get an efficient cut, I have to walk very very slow so that it has time to cut all the grass. This takes much too long to mow my very small front yard!

    Easy assembly right out of the box, easy start, lightweight, easy height adjustment, no gas/spark plugs/oil to worry about.


    Doesn't give an efficient cut. If I don't mow everything twice, my lawn looks like a hack job with missed patches of grass everywhere.

    Many great features, but lacks power.
    I liked it when I first got it, but grew to dislike it after time. I liked the many useful features it has, which I'll describe in the 'Pros' but it's lack of power caused me to change my opinion as time came by. I wouldn't recommend this product over a gas-powered mower! It nearly dies on you if you're cutting medium-tall grass (at least mine does these things) and I constantly had to "re-pass" over areas that I had already mowed because there would be uneven parts of grass that didn't get cut the first time! It also took me a lot longer time-wise to mow both my front and back yards because I would have to keep redoing paths and I'd have to look out for the electrical cord. Although I already knew that the power cord may be a problem causer, I didn't think i'd be so time consuming! It literally (and I'm not embellishing this!) took me over two hours to do both yards, unlike the gas-powered mower that takes 40 minutes (in my experience)!

    Instant starting and stopping with a pull and release of the lever, no yanking of cords; Easier on your wallet because it requires no gas, no trips to the gas station; Zero emissions; Almost no maintenance because it requires no oil or tune-ups, all you have to do is sharpen or change the blade periodically (and clean the deck occasionally).; It's a lot quieter; Probably has an even torque throughout operation, because it's electric motor is consistently running, unlike the internal-combustion engine which gets power from the combustion stroke of the piston every cycle. The electric mowers don't work on a principle of strokes (at least not like internal-combustion engine types if they do).; Lighter in weight than gas powered ones, which makes it easier to maneuver.


    Power cord limits how far you can go, obviously; Lack of power as I've mentioned above, I think this kills the overall quality of this product (at least for mine) because you need power if you live in an area that gets hot during the summer time. Without the necessary amount of power, in my experience, I got less cutting for the amount of time it took as compared to the traditional internal-combustion engine. This product seems to struggle with taller grass because the noise of the mower sounds as if it's being overloaded (this is also my experience).; It's cutting width is only 18 inches, which is typically shorter than the average internal combustion engine for price (in my opinion).;
