    Pros: Easy to use, good mulching, even cut
    Cons: Handle hard to fold, on/off/safety switch broke after 4 months of use

    Summary: (updated 7/30/07 - see below) I have looked at rechargeable lawn mowers ever since I saw the first Black and Decker model at a Home Depot and the price has always turned me off. I am the kind of person who will go to a garage sale and buy and old ... read more

    Pros: It is a Green machine
    Cons: Everything, initial and ongoing costs, and design flaws

    Summary: Paid over $300 to do my part to reduce gree house emissions.  My lawn is 20 x 50 so I thought a cordless mower would be just the ticket Wrong Wrong Wrong Wrong.  Within 3 months the handle snaped of where it is attached to the body of the mower ... read more

    Pros: Easy, quiet, batteries easily replaced. Making a better future for my children!
    Cons: None so far... have owned it about 3 years!

    Summary: I am on my third mowing season and my batteries finally need replaced. Thought it was going to be REALLY bad beacause of all the nasty "I had to replace my batteries" comments. Come on... it's a rechargable mower, of course the batteries are going to go ... read more

    Pros: - low maintenance

    Cons: - battery lifespan is poor
    - bag is difficult to empty
    - rear flap interferes with blade

    Summary: I purchased the mower from Home Depot two years ago and I have to say that by far the biggest concern is that getting parts has been a royal pain. I will get to that at the end.The mower turns on well enough and cuts even somewhat long grass ... read more

    Cons: Poor serviceabilityPoor quality componentsPoor service response

    Summary: Bought mine for a 6000 sq foot lawn spring 2007.  Parts were very hard to find, help line and owner's manual (lists the entire mower deck, including motor, electronic charging control, deck, batteries and cover as a single part number) all but ... read more

    Pros: Easy to use and environment friendly
    Cons: Terrible service and the back flap sticks under the machine

    Summary: I am a retired woman with very weak wrists and thought this lawnmower would be the perfect solution for me.  It was expensive ($390) and worked well for one year.  It died on my final mowing in 2010 and I had to drive 3 hours each way to have ... read more

  • Poorly Manufactured Model

    Jul 29, 2011 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: It's electric and no gas is consumed. Quieter than gas.
    Cons: OEM Battery is short lived and too expensive.

    Summary: The model was poorly manufactured in my case. One of the battery cells (of two) was isolated (not a part of the circuit) during assembly. Probably a careless assembler. It worked on a single cell, with reduced power for two seasons. Then it wouldn't hold ... read more

    Aug 31, 2010 by

    Pros: Low noise, easy to use. No issues with starting or mixing gas.
    Cons: Short battery life. Grassguard gets chewed up if you pull the mower backwards.

    Summary: I have a small lawn and the battery last only two years. Finding a replacement is very difficult and costs $140 to replace (parts only). This is my second and last cordless lawn mower. The first was a Black and Decker which had the same short battery ... read more

    Pros: Quiet; no exhaust fumes
    Cons: Battery issues infuriating and costly (~$100.00 per season); uneven cut due to weak battery.

    Summary: I purchased a Homelite 24 volt cordless mower after downsizing from a four-acre lawn to a 1/4-acre lawn. The idea of using electricity generated from our own solar array and avoiding the use of gasoline in many garden-care products was appealing on many ... read more

    Pros: The mower cut and mulched well when it was new.  It is relatively quiet.
    Cons: Heavy and hard to maneuver.  Battery lasted only 2 mowing seasons and is expensive.

    Summary: I previously had a battery lawn mower (different brand) that finally gave out after 7 or 8 years of use.  When I tried to replace it, I found that there were very few to choose from at the local stores.  I selected the Homelite brand because it ... read more

    Pros: Quiet, no gasoline/oil, removable battery pack, ball-bearing wheels, side discharge, mulch, or rear bagging.
    Cons: Underpowered, poor bagging, heavy, cheap plastic handle knobs/control lever, battery charger cooks the battey pack.

    Summary: I bought this mower at Home Depot for $229, should be $329. It was mis-marked and the Clerk in Lawn & Garden said I could have it for the marked price. Mind you, I have a 1985 Honda gasoline push mower HR-194 that is still working perfectly, which ... read more

    Pros: Good cut. No trailing leads or messing about with oil and petrol.
    Cons: Long charge up period. Still not certain about battery performance.

    Summary: As I have some grass a fair way from the house I thought I'd go for this model as it was on sale and bought it cheap. I am always put off by "green" battery driven garden tools due to short running time and long charging time and also how ... read more

    Pros: It is always ready to go, and you don't smell like exhaust after mowing. 
    Cons: I was dispointed in the build quality. 

    Summary: My yard is a postage stamp - so small I can mow it in less than 10 minutes.  It is perfect for a small, battery powered mower.  In owning one, I've found that electric mowers are great for a number of reasons.  You never go out to mow and ... read more

    Cons: Battery life expectancy is short. Battery goes bad after using a few times.

    Summary: When I bought my cordless Homelite electric lawnmower ($450+) I was thrilled with the idea of having an eco-friendly mower, but only after a few times of use of this mower have I come to loose faith in it. First, it doesn't have the required ... read more

    Pros: super reliable, amazingly powerful, and able to be tilted for cleaning.
    Cons: grass catcher opening too small for convenient emptying.

    Summary: I bought my 20" 24V cordless electric lawn mower from home depot on an impulse. I took it home, and took it out of the box, and all I had to do to prepare it for use, was unfold the handle, tighten the knobs, and insert the key, which was already tied ... read more

  • I'd rather shoot myself in the face

    Jul 24, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: It might impress your "green" friends if they see it sitting in your garage.
    Cons: Doesn't cut grass. Given that, it also cost too much to qualify as garage art.

    Summary: I bought this piece of crap because I have a very small and flat yard. One day, I had too much money in my pocket and decided to splurge on this hunk of crap. I swear, it took me no less than 6 passes at a high cut setting to cut the "not overly grown" ... read more
