I apologize if this is the wrong place to post this.
I'm looking for a lawn mower...electric plug in compared to battery operated.
I'm looking for something smaller, light but something with power so that I can run over leaves in the fall.
I know the cords are a pain, but I don't have a large lawn area, and I have a corded trimmer which has power.
I'm looking at this one...any feed back?

I have a Black and Decker corded electric mower and have been very happy with it. The cord isn't a pain at all.

That said, I will likely replace my current mower with a cordless one when it dies.

Patriot, thanks for responding, really appreciate.

would you mind me asking, how long have you had it...what size is it, and is it powerful enough to run over leaves in the fall and chop them up, I want to use them as mulch?

Can you advise?

I, too, have a B&D corded mower. It has a mulching deck. A side bag is optional so you can collect the mulched clippings. I've had it for about seven years. I have a small yard - takes me about a half hour, including getting the mower out of the garage and putting it away after cutting. I never ran over the cord. (Hope I didn't just jinx myself!) I would definitely buy this brand again.
BTW: I'm 76 years old.

I think this is my fourth season with it?

Size? Umm... fairly small. About 18"? I fold the handle down when I put it in my shed.

I use it to run over leaves all the time! I also have a leaf vacuum, which chops leaves, so I don't run over tons of leaves with my mower, but I do leave a few hundred or so to chop up and use in the grass. The rest are sucked up in my leaf vacuum and then spread on my garden.

I also have a Black and Decker electric with cord. Have had it since 2005 and it always runs fine. Never ran over the cord, but probably will get cordless next time. It also mulches but I pick up the clippings.

have you ever tried to mulch leaves with it? If so, did it do a good job?
