I love this mower so much I actually purchased it twice! The first time was in the early 1990s, when I lived in a rented house in Virginia with a postage stamp-sized front yard. As I remember, I paid about $135 for it and it did a beautiful job on my lawn.

We moved to another house with a much bigger yard and took the mower along. Several years later I moved into an apartment and didn't need the mower, so I gave it to a friend.

Then in 2004 I finally purchased a house, which has a big pie-shaped yard. We went to a local hardware store and I was thrilled to find the identical mower for $89.99, used.

I snapped it right up. The hardware man told me the previous owner had mowed over the electrical cord not once but twice, and at that point decided he'd better stick with a gas mower! His loss.

My husband used to mow lawns and repair lawnmowers as a teenager, in the 1970s, but now he has a pacemaker and is not allowed to work near large magnetic fields -- which means I do all the mowing at our house.

Like all the other Black & Decker products we have ever purchased or tried, this lawnmower is excellent. And now, with the rising price of gasoline, it is truly economical to operate. The only possible issue with the Black & Decker electric mower is that one must not mow through the power cord. The blade seems to stay sharp. I would only think about getting rid of this mower if I had so much property that I needed a riding mower.

by: Sabarish

I recently bought a BLACK & DECKER 18 INCH 6.5 AMP ELECTRIC MOWER from one of the shops available. It comes with 6.5 amp motor. It has an 18 inch cutting width that is highly sufficient for our small lawn.

The size of this small unit is 32.5 by 24.8 by 13.1 inches and it weighs just 36 pounds. Like all other mower this can also be used in forward or backward direction.The whole Deck is made of durable polymer. so, assembling the mower is not a difficult one and no special tools are required for it. The Side discharge with optional bag.

Our lawn is really small and we cannot afford huge money for a we bought this.
it is working quite good. we had no problem with this mower.we use to maintain it well and sharpen its blade periodically. The footprint of this unit stores well and as well as the grass bagger is exceptional.

The power of this small unit is fantastic, It removes even the thick grass. It is very economical and the main thing is there is no need for maintenance.
This BLACK & DECKER 18 INCH 6.5 AMP ELECTRIC MOWER is working really good for us, and we like it's work. So, i recommend this small mower to those who have a small lawn in their house and want to maintain it properly with no maintenance.
