    Super Lawnmower - Served me well for 4 years...
    I purchased the 19" Self-Propelled Rechargeable Mower fall 2010 and didn't use until I moved into my new home 9/2011. My mow space just under 1/3 acre. The front is a small 60'x40', side yard 80'x40' with the backyard being 110'x 90'. I typically rotate mowing the backyard one day and the front, setting deck on setting 4-5. Over the past four years I've learned to sharpen the mulch blade 2-3X per season depending on use and replace every other year is badly nicked. I've purchased an additional battery. I've been overall happy with the product. I'm now thinking about replacing the unit - either small riding mower or cordless that is much lighter and easier to move around.

    Reliable, variable speed self-propelled, availability of replacement blades and batteries. B&D is a good product. I wish they would take this model to the next level similar to the EGO mower.


    The batteries are heavy and make the mower itself sometimes a little heavy/clumsy to maneuver. However, I would never consider a push model because of that. Weight is unfortunately the trade off of an acid battery - lithium is lighter. Recommended innovations would be larger wheels.

    Works GREAT so far..
    Only had this mower for about a week and used it once. Took 5 min to get assembled and have the batt on the charger. Seemed to charge pretty fast, less then an hour. Once I got mowing it worked like a champ, both push and self propel. So far this is great! Better then expected!

    Easy assembly, fast charge, great cut, quieter then a gas mower, easy to store taking up little space


    Grass gets under the batt, have to remove the batt to clean. Not hard or time consuming, just figured there would be a seal of some sort.

    Didn't work. Horrible quality control and service.
    I bought this model because I liked the feature set and there were many positive reviews. That was a mistake. I had to return this machine the day after it arrived because it's completely useless. The battery won't hold a charge, even after a whole day of charging. B&D told me it looked like I had a bad battery. They gave me two choices: return the entire lawn mower to the store, or take the mower to their nearest service center, over an hour's drive away, and have a technician examine the battery and maybe they could help me. Guess which option I chose. I would have been happy to just try a new battery, but they wouldn't do that. Now here's the thing: this battery comes with a one-touch power indicator. You hit the button right on top of the battery and it tells you how charged it is. Despite the simplicity of testing this device, it's apparently too much of a task for the Black and Decker quality control department.

    Can't tell you. Couldn't get the mower to even run. B&D confirmed that they shipped me a broken battery.


    Battery problems described above made this entire device non-functional. This shoddy attitude towards craftsmanship is shown in other ways throughout this machine. For example, the leads that charge the battery are made of cheap plastic that are difficult to connect, which means it *will* eventually break. I paid over $400 for this machine and the primary charging port is more flimsy than a typical $10 USB thumb drive. At least those are made of metal! Never again, Black and Decker. You've wasted my time and money for the last time.

    1 yr. later not working! Poor battery life.
    I purchased this at Home Depot one year ago and the it will not hold a charge for more than 10 min. Black and Decker sent me a new charger but it did not fix the problem. Now we are checking out the battery. I have to wait at least 10 days for Black and Decker to mail me a postage label. Then I have to figure out how to wrap up and ship off a very heavy battery. Then I have to wait until they try to fix it or send me a new one? Can you imagine how tall my grass will be by the end of this? They should just send me a new battery period! Also the bag is not catching grass so there is another problem. It also doesn't seem to cut as close to the ground as it used to. I would not have purchased it knowing that it wouldn't last past 1 year.

    it is attractive.


    It propels too fast on the slowest level, does not cut sharp like in the beginning and battery doesn't work at one year of ownership.

    Disappointing initial purchase
    I have had a CMM1000 for many years and tried to replace the batteries to use it this spring, but it is not charging the batteries. So, after 10 years, I purchased the SPCM1936. My grass is about knee high so I really need the new lawn mower. It arrived in 2 days - great job amazon! - but the bolt to attach the handle had no threads. When I called Black and Decker I was told one would be delivered in 5-7 business days. Having paid $399 for a mower that cannot be used without the bolt, I asked that it be shipped overnight and was told only that she would try her best. I asked to speak to someone else who could approve expedited shipping and I was hung up on. Horrible job Black and Decker both in the poor quality control of the products you are manufacturing in China, and the extremely poor customer service you provide in America.

    I won't know for 5-7 business days.


    It did not come with a vital piece - the threads on the screw to attach the handle.

    Self propel kept breaking
    I loved it at first but the self propel broke so I took it the only authorized service center in the state. It took them a couple months to get it back, during which we had to pay a lawn service to cut out lawn. After getting it back I was able to cut the lawn one time and then the self propel died shortly into the second use after it was repaired.

    No gas smells, next to no maintenance, quiet.


    We have way more lawn than this was intended for. If you have a small to medium size lot that is relatively flat I think this would be a great mower if they could get the self propel feature more reliable.

    This mower is not ready for prime time
    We owned this mower less than 2 years and the mower already needs service, We started having issues with the mower turning on but the blade would not move. We brought the mower to a Black and Decker authorized dealer where they would resolve the issue but since the mower was under warranty, the dealer has taken an inordinate amount of time due to the fact that issue was being covered under warranty. As a consumer, I feel as though the dealer works on warranty items as a low priority. We have been disappointed with the quality and workmanship and would not recommend this product anyone, I would think twice before purchasing this product

    It's electric and is convenient


    poor quality

    Had less than 5 months and battery died
    Had this mower for less than 5 months and the battery died. Tried talking with customer support at Home Depot and got nowhere. I can't believe that I gave up a perfectly good gas lawn mower for this.



    Battery dies, heavy, doesn't work.

    Very good mower overall
    I've had this mower since the summer of 2011, and it is still working very well. I always use the mulch setting, so I can't speak to how it bags. I also rarely use the self-propelled function, although when I've pushed the bar before it does seem to go pretty fast. It does cut grass well, even though I could be more proactive about sharpening the blade (I've only done it once since I purchased the mower 2 summers ago); it does a good job regardless. The battery life is good overall, but sometimes if I let the grass grow too tall, I have to cut 3/4 of it and then finish the rest the next day. Overall though, it beats having to deal with gas and tune ups and all the mess of a gas mower.

    relatively quiet, no gas, no tune ups, cuts well, good battery life,


    it's a bit heavy, battery life could always be longer.
