The Black & Decker CM1836 Cordless Mulching Mower affords the independence of a gasoline lawn mower with the simplicity and ease of an electric lawnmower. It is an easy task to start and never necessitates trips to the gas station, oil or tune-ups. Perfect for lawns up to 1/3 acre in size, it can outfitted for mulching or to bag the grass clippings.

Simply insert a key and give the handle a single pull and the CM1836 will be powered on and ready to rock. Worried about waking up the neighbors or sleeping kids?  Not with the CM1836 which runs with much less noise than traditional gas mowers.

Positive Customer Reviews

Love this mower. It's extrememly quiet (about as loud as a vacuum cleaner), easy to move, and cuts great. We have a little less than a 1/3 of a acre and it cuts on a single charge every time. I couldn't be happier.
-- T.W.

Just charge it and go. The height adjustment is awesome and allow you to really manicure the lawn if that's your thing.
-- S.G.

You can barely hear this mower running, which is strange. But it cuts great and starts up every time on the first pull. Easy to push..very light.
-- C.T.

Negative Customer Comments

We sit on a 1/4 acre and the mower doesn't come close to cutting it on a single charge.
-- R.S.

Not good for thick or very long grass.  For that, you're going to need some gas fueled horsepower.
