Ive never used black and decker cordless mowers but i have for 15 yrs used a
black and decker electric mower with no problems,all i had to do was sharpen
the blade.you can get a electric back baggng b&d mower at sears for like 219
bucks,side discharge at home depot about 175.i also like b & d string trimmers
with automatic line feed no bumping or messed up trimmer lines.
I've been using the Black&Decker CMM1000 cordless for the past 5 or 6 years.
It's much much quieter than gas mowers. I've sharpened the 19" mulching
blade several times each season - a half-round file is necessary for the
curved portion. I replaced the blade once.
As a mulching mower, it would probably work well on dry grass. In our
normally humid climate (on Long Island), and with a mostly shady lawn, the
grass is rarely dry - it sticks to the mower and has to be cleaned out after
every mowing - I add it to the compost.
Capacity is limited - We have a small yard, but I could never cut both the
front and back without re-charging.
At the end of last season it was slowing down, and then the cable broke. I'm
about to replace the B&D, probably with a more powerful gas mower.
