Black & Decker SPCM1936 Cordless Lawn Mower Review

For those of you who are thinking about green living, maybe you would like to try mowing your lawn with the help of a cordless lawn mower. Experience life without gas by cutting your grass with Black & Decker’s efficiently designed cordless mower, the 19-inch SPCM1936, which runs on 36 Volts. The power supply will let you mow as much as 1/3 of an acre of lawn, given reasonable conditions, and at a pace you want, by choosing from the variable speed control. With a new, improved design for the blade, it has a longer runtime with more efficient cutting power. This cordless lawn mower is not difficult to clean because of its cutting deck made of lightweight polymer that won’t rust. You can opt to mulch the grass clippings, bag them or discharge them at the rear by merely pushing a button.

The Black & Decker SPCM1936 enables you to cut grass when you want without worrying that you will disturb the neighbours. Turn a key, push the start button and you’re ready to mow the yard, with the noise level way below that of gasoline lawn mowers. The cutting height can be adjusted fast by pulling a single lever, which moves all four wheels at once. If you don’t have much storage space, this cordless lawn mower is perfect in that it folds into a compact unit, something its conventional competitor can’t do. Then there’s the air pollution caused by gas-powered mowers, the emissions of which, along with all other lawn equipment using gasoline, has been found by the EPA as exceeding 1 million tons.

There are no insidious emissions from using the Black & Decker SPCM1936 cordless lawn mower at all. The power is supplied by a rechargeable battery, which can be lifted out and traded if it runs down while cutting grass, which will be needed for bigger lawns. The 36V battery charger simply plugs into the closest convenient power outlet. This mower has gotten an Energy Star mark, so it is energy-efficient and should use less energy, saving you a lot of money.

Being lightweight and ergonomically designed are what gives the Black & Decker SPCM1936 cordless lawn mower a competitive edge. This cordless mower doesn’t make much noise at all and nobody should have trouble using it. No user will have difficulty setting the cutting height or using the cordless lawn mower’s self-propelling function. The SPCM1936 cordless lawn mower copes well with the regular size lawn, while a clean down is fast and easy. Once you’ve taken it out of the box, your Black & Decker SPCM1936 could be ready for its first mow within five minutes. It is almost entirely set up when it comes in the package, and the battery only takes a few minutes to be fully charged.

The downsides of the SPCM1936 cordless lawn mower are an absolute lack of power, and there are a few situations where the self propulsion doesn’t go slow enough, and also the lawn mower takes a little while to get up to full speed. There are times when the blade goes on cutting after you let go, perhaps because of a very light spring on the cutting function bale. You have to bend over to insert the charging cord, because the charging port is in an awkward location. Considering how good this lawnmower is in terms of the environment, small annoyances such as these are easy to forgive.
