Electric lawn mowers are a lot more popular than you might think. Electric lawn mowers are great because they are light efficient and environmentally friendly. "Does it come with someone who will do the mowing?" Not exactly but that seems to be all that this Black & Decker MM875 Lawn Hog 12 Amp 19-Inch Electric Mulching Mower with rear bag lacks. The reliable electric start motor will not allow make enough work for you to develop a coveted "six pack" abdomen either. Environmentalists will love these electric lawn mowers with purring motor that is soothing rather than ear splitting like power lawn mowers of the past.
Not too long ago I was at a local hardware store and overheard another customer talking to an employee about buying a new lawnmower for her husband. That is when it hit me not everyone knows how to buy a lawn mower. So I decided I was going to write a simple-to-read buying guide that was easy to follow but still informative enough that almost anyone can buy a mower that meets their needs. The first thing that needs to be told in this buying guide is not all lawn mowers are created equal. With this being said you need to understand that a cheap model is likely going to have a hard time cutting grass in a terrain that is not flat.
Reviews are generally quite positive regarding these electric lawn mowers. One review did state the obvious which is to always make certain that the electric cord is kept out of the way of the cutting blades or the human mower may become a crispy critter. In many ways the Black & Decker LM175 18-Inch 6.5 Amp Electric Mower is similar to the MM875 above. It has a slightly less wide cutting path the option of bag or no bag. This electric mower is about 30 pounds lighter that the MM875 which many make it a bit easier for older children and smaller adults to handle with ease. One reviewer returned to the electric cord and the need to be aware of its position during mowing. This gentleman mentioned beginning at the electrical outlet and carefully working his way away from that point of origin.
These engines are relatively quiet and because there is the battery chargeable engine installed they do not burn any fuel or emit any smoke. All that one will hear off of these lawn mowers is the voice of the blade cutting through the grass. However if one does not want the battery run mower one can opt for the wired mowers which - as the name suggests - draw power from the electricity mains and help it to run the mower engine. However the wire attached to the mower can be cumbersome at times and hence it is not really popular. But like its battery counterpart this mower is made up of an engine that is once again quiet and is totally efficient till it is connected to the mains.
