A smaller form of the CM 1936, the Black & Decker CM1836 Cordless Lawn Mower might only weigh 64 pounds, but it can power its way through 1/3 acre of grass on one charge. It starts right up with the turn of a key and a handle pull, and folds up easily for convenient storage.
Black and Decker back this electric mower with its two-year warranty on materials and workmanship as well as a 30-day satisfaction guarantee. This cordless electric power gives the freedom of a gas mower with the handiness of an electric mower.
The Black & Decker CM1836 Cordless Lawn Mower has earned a four star rating with some mixed reviews. A commenter mentioned that the battery on a previous Black and Decker model had to be replaced after only 2 ½ years. There were several comments concerning the inconvenience of the authorized service centers. In many cases, the service centers where quite a distance away, and the Black and Decker customer service representatives were not as helpful as the could have been.
Note that this product could not be returned. Because of the lead acid battery, this mower is considered a hazardous material and will not be accepted in return. All issues are referred to your closest authorized service center.
Over half or the reviewers gave the Black & Decker CM1836 Cordless Lawn Mower the highest rating of five stars. There is much to like about this mower, starting with the ease of assembly right out of the box. The battery arrives with a full charge, and customers can be out mowing their lawn in less than fifteen minutes after delivery. It is lightweight for an electric mower and compact so it is easy to fold up and put away.
Those who bought the Black & Decker CM1836 Cordless Lawn Mower to replace their gas powered mower were giddy. They marveled at how quiet this mower is, and are thrilled not to have to drive to the gas station for one gallon of gas. There is also no fussing with a pull cord as this mower starts right up every time with a safety key and a pull of the handle.
The Black & Decker CM1836 Cordless Lawn Mower is highly recommended by over half of the customer reviews. As with most electric mowers, this model reportedly has a little trouble with thicker grass. But it powers right through grass at a reasonable height, so don’t let your grass go to long between mowing. The cutting path is smaller than with the 19 inch model, but this mower is much lighter and a reviewer commented that they were able to finish their lawn in less time.
