Black & Decker LM175 electric lawn mower, very lightweight, only 35 pounds, will suit the smaller garden. The motor is only 6.5Amp, driving its 18 inch cutter, so considerably less powerful than its rivals, but ok for the smaller blade but still the price is a little high in comparison.
The plastic deck construction makes it wider than the cutter, (as the plastic needs to be thicker for strength) , meaning it won’t quite get as close as the Greenworks model does to obstructions like trees and walls. Also smaller wheels so may be more difficult to push over rougher ground. Cutting length is a single lever adjustment for all 4 wheels, adjustable from 1 inch to 3.5 inches. A good 2 year warranty on the mower and a lifetime guarantee on the main deck. The cable supplied is 100 ft long. It is designed to side discharge or side bag, the bag however is sold separately ( see bottom of page), which makes it poor value against our other reviewed mowers.
The feedback from customers buying this product were enthusiastically in favor! Overwhelming positive reviews. The only niggles, were the size of the grass cuttings bag being small so it needed emptying too often , it has a capacity of 25.5 Litres, considerably smaller than other models. A couple of reviews mentioned the cable coming loose or disconnecting from the mower in use.
Overall it scored 7/10 in our review, for the price we thought it underpowered, B&D a little mean not providing a bag, but otherwise a good workhorse
