Black And Decker CMM1200 Review
The CMM1200 19-Inch 24-Volt Cordless Lawn Mower by internationally renowned Black & Decker is a powerful cordless electric mower which is clean and expedient.
The permanent magnet electric motor of this model is 24-Volt and 1,200-watt, which, depending on the conditions of the grass, can mow up to 1,200 square feet or a 1/3 acre lawn on a single charge.
The start-up is simple and quick, with just the pull of a lever, while height adjustment of the wheels can be managed with a touch of a button. For safe start-ups, there is a removable key so unintentional starts are avoided.
The dimensions of the mower are 36 x 22.5 x 17.6 inches, weighing 76 pounds, and due to the foldable handle, it can be stored vertically and in compact spaces. A choice between discharging, bagging and mulching, the mower allows the user to decide where the grass cuttings end up.
Customers of the CMM1200 found the mower to be as advertised for the most part, and enjoyed many of the typical features which make it preferable over traditional gas mowers.
The straightforward assembly is an advantage from the very beginning, requiring no other work other than organizing the placement of the mulching bag.
The simple start up, with the insertion of a key and pull of a lever, is a benefit for users, and eliminates complications with awkward pull starts.
Overall, buyers are content with the virtually zero maintenance required of the CMM1200; the only things recommended are replacement of the battery and blade sharpening.
For eco-conscious consumers, the CMM1200 impresses with the Energy Star approved charger, which saves money as well as the environment. The relative no noise pollution is also a positive, and customers are happy with the less disturbing impact it has on themselves and neighbors.
– The weight of the mower, which is especially noticeable when there is an incline in the lawn.

– The mulching bag is not as spacious as perhaps desired, and needs emptying during mowing.
