Black and Decker Lawn Mowers - The Best Selling Electric Lawn Mowers -
Black and Decker lawn mowers are the best selling electric lawn mowers. It's an enviable position to be in because gas powered mowers are on the nose and consumers are switching in droves to electric lawnmowers. As a consequence Black and Decker mowers are set to become the top selling brand of mower irrespective of whether they are electric, gas or push powered.
Both of these battery powered lawn mowers are equally powerful and capable of mowing up to one third of an acre on a single charge. However the CM1936 is a better option for those with larger lawns. It cuts a slightly wider swath and it's battery can be swapped for another in minutes. In addition to increasing the area that can be mown, it also enables batteries to be charged in locations where it's not convenient to take a lawn mower. The CM1936 also has a more easily operated single button height adjustment than the CM1836.
Self Propelled Lawn Mower
SPCM1936 19-Inch 36-Volt
Released in early 2011, it was first the self propelled electric lawn mower to come on the market. Overall reviews have been positive. Anyone brought up on gas propelled mowers will no doubt need to become accustomed to electric propulsion. It's not too dissimilar to the experience of driving a Prius for the first time.
Corded Mulching Mowers
MM1800 18-Inch 12 amp
MM875 Lawn Hog 19-Inch 12 amp
The Lawn Hog is by far the most popular Black and Decker lawn mower. It's a lot cheaper than most cordless lawn mowers e.g. about half the price of the CM1936. The trade-off is the "cord," but providing all areas to be mown are within a one hundred foot radius of a power outlet, it's easy enough to overcome the challenges of being tethered.
Lawn Mower Comparisons
Brand recognition is undoubtedly a key reason for the popularity of Black and Deckers lawn mowers. The company has been around since 1910 and most of us already own at least one of their products. On the other hand brand names such as: Neuton, Sun Joe, Earthwise, Worx and Greenworks are less familiar to most of us. Brand recognition is not the only reason why a Black and Decker electric mower has become standard equipment in garden sheds across the country. They consistently score top lawn mower ratings, because they have the features that consumers demand in an era of increased environmental awareness:
More than enough power to cut a large suburban lawn with ease.
Quiet enough to avoid upsetting the neighbors when cutting the grass at 7am.
No lawn mower maintenance required other than charging, cleaning and occasionally sharpening the blades.
No gas, oil, fumes, pull-start frustrations or servicing costs.
Increased lawn mower safety courtesy of keyed ignition systems, fast and effective deadman controls, and the absence of gasoline.
Single button height adjustment making them convenient and easy to use.
Durable and robust construction. Despite appearances the plastic deck is almost indestructible. Other components that may appear toy-like are actually made from durable polymers that can't rust or corrode.
Black and Decker lawn mowers are also competitively priced.
While up front costs always grab our attention, it's the total cost of ownership over 3-5 years that is a more useful when attempting to identify the best lawn mowers. In the case of cordless electric lawn mowers the battery needs replacing every 2-3 years, otherwise there are no other costs. It explains why they stack up well in lawn mower reviews.
