  • Break open the piggy bank for the Lawn Hog

    May 22, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: light, no fumes, folds for easy storage, rust free housing, no winterizing.
    Cons: Can't leave it outside during the summer, bag seemed small

    Summary: Springtime arrived, and like normal starting the mower was an issue. I pulled it from the basement, cleaned the carb, filled the gas, filled the oil, changed the plugs, and pulled the string until my arm nearly fell and it still wouldn't start. I ... read more

  • Love my Lawn Hog MM875

    May 8, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: No lubrication, no gas can to store. Easy to store in a small space.
    Cons: It's difficult to push the electric cord through the holder.

    Summary: When I got tired of trying to get someone to do my lawn when it needed it, I decided to buy my own mower. Being a senior citizen, I needed something lightweight. I did research on line and in stores before I decided on the Lawn Hog MM875. It was so ... read more

  • The cord option...

    Oct 15, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Lightweight, starting mechanism, maintenance
    Cons: Cord, edging ability

    Summary: The Black & Decker MM875 is a corded electric push lawn mower with a 19 inch cutting width. I know your first question…why would anyone prefer a corded electric mower to a “cordless” (gas or electric/battery)? After reading the pros/cons of the electric ... read more

  • Mow On!

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Low Emissions, light weight - easy to push, easy to start, quite
    Cons: cord (with and corded mower)

    Summary: Lot : This is a great alternative to the traditional gas mower for small lots. We just moved into a ¼ acres suburban lot and it took a little convincing to get my husband to put his manly lawnmower appearance aside and try something a little greener. I ... read more

  • Stenchless, well-designed mower

    Aug 15, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quiet, odorless, excellent ergonomy, easy to push
    Cons: Maneuvering the cable, wheels are a tad small

    Summary: When we moved to our new (very old) house with a big lawn we knew that we wouldn't be able to maintain the yard with our reel-mower. But I cannot stand the noise and stench from two-stroke mowers terrorizing our neighborhood, so I looked for an ... read more

  • Apparently I can mow the yard... dang it!

    Apr 15, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Ease of use, adjustable height lever, and it mulches.
    Cons: Like any electric mower... the cord can irritate you.

    Summary: When we went to Home Depot, we were looking for a specific kind of mower. One I could handle all on my own without needing my husband to do a thing. You see, he felt I should mow the front yard since I designed it and I'm the one who keeps it up. I ... read more

  • Quick and Efficient

    Apr 6, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: No fuel, oil, priming, pull-starts, plugs, filters, rust, vibration, noise, pollution, or back strain
    Cons: Just need to be mindful of the power cord

    Summary: Picked up the 19" Lawn Hog at Lowes. It was the same price at Home Depot ($229). Assembly was just unfolding the handle (Where's the fun in that?). The deck and housing feels like PVC, so it won't chip or rust. Underneath, it's smooth and molded ... read more

    Pros: No gasoline hassle, sparkplugs, or oilchanges; cleaner; domestic energy; quiet; easy start & storage
    Cons: Narrower cut, managing cord takes a little effort

    Summary: Review 19 August, 2004: I recently moved into a house with about 10,000 SF of grass, so I needed a mower. Knowing that gasoline mowers produce significant amounts of pollution (see note 1 at the bottom), I wanted an electric mower. The natural gas ... read more

  • Good, but not recommended for a yard with trees

    Jul 5, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to start. Cuts grass well.
    Cons: Very hard to maneuver around trees.

    Summary: I bought the 875 for my small (50x125) yard because of its simplicity -- no need to deal with running out of gas, pull-starting, etc. Also, it should be more energy-efficient, with less emissions, than a gas mower (although I have no easy way to verify ... read more

    Pros: Quiet, no gas stink, low maintenance.
    Cons: Motor burned up on the third use. Seems to leave a lot of stragglers.

    Summary: I needed a mower for our .15 acre yard. My husband insisted that a reel mower wasn't going to cut it, since we've got a lot more territory now than our little downtown place did. I looked at some gas mowers, but the maintenance requirements are kind of ... read more

    Cons: Cord is a hassle and can't use on wet grass

    Summary: I'm a first-time homeowner and when I bought my first lawnmower, I specifically wanted an electric mower to be more environmentally friendly. The MM875 fits that bill and works great on my small lawn. The MM875 has several selling points. The environme ... read more

    Pros: Easy on your wallet, and the environment. For the right yard, it's a no-brainer.
    Cons: Cord may get in way, also, not overbuilt

    Pros: Lightweight, maneuverable, clean, quiet
    Cons: Unreliable

    Pros: Easy to use (no gas/oil), good power on my tall fescue, great ht. adjustment.
    Cons: getting used to the electrical cord.

    Summary: I replaced my other electric mower with this mower. This one is heavier but this one has a grass catcher bag. I am very happy with the performance of this mower even on my tall fescue even when it gets to be about 3-4" tall. It is very easy to use and I ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quiet, instant start, easy height adjustment
    Cons: Insufficient power

    Summary: I have used this mower for a year now, so there are no comments on durability. I bought the mower because I abhor the idea that a gas-powered mower creates so much air pollution, not to mention the noise, frequently unreliable engines and starting ... read more

    Pros: Short enough to go easily under my 2-slat split-rail fence and easy to maneuver.
    Cons: Looks like a toy and I would be reluctant to give it a heavy workout.

    Summary: I watched the UPS driver drop the box off his truck, and expected to find a broken lawnmower. Astonishingly, although they packed this machine with a minimum of cardboard, the lawnmower was cleverly cushioned and took no damage whatsoever. We were also ... read more

    <>Armature (motor) failure/reliability <>& adheres to upper-well (above blade) <>Imperfect cut <>Loud

    Summary: I studied the reviews, etc. before purchasing my B&D electric mower. There were, unfortunately, few electric mower choices of merit in 2004 (unlike the 1990s) when I made my purchase. For anyone considering purchasing a B&D mower, please take the ... read more

  • Good when it works...

    Rated Show
    Pros: Relatively quiet, clean, mows relatively well
    Cons: Cord, questionable durability/reliability

    Summary: It mows fairly well, except the motor & blade lack enough power to adequately lift very thick, matted or damp grass on the first pass. The cord, of course, is an issue, but it beats having to worry about whether there's enough charge left in batteries. ... read more

    Pros: Great mulching or bagging modes. No pollution and virtually no maintenance.
    Cons: Could be perceived as heavy for small people.

    Summary: This mower works very well for small yards. It takes a while to get used to having an extension cord to deal with, however, no troubles with maintenance and also no pollution. It mulches and bags clippings very well. The height range is good. I have ... read more

    Pros: Environmentally Friendly, Quiet, Hassle Free, Performance was acceptable
    Cons: Cord is a pain if you have big lawn with trees and stuff.

    Summary: Bought for environment friendliness and no maintenance hassle. A friend also recommended it but they had bought the model without the bag, which to date is still working fine. Mowed a poorly maintained lawn that had tall grass at the highest setting ... read more

    Pros: None besides the fact that it does not cause pollution.
    Cons: No power. Does not bag. Poor customer support.

    Summary: I purchased this mower thinking it would be more efficient and lighter. The bag never seems to want to work so I have resorted to mulching full time. As mentioned in another review the exit shoot always gets clogged no matter how dry or short the ... read more

    Pros: electric.
    Cons: Blade, power.

    Summary: I've never been able to get an even cut using this mower. There are always sections that I have to go over twice to get a even cut. I've started using the bagging feature, and the hole that the grass is supposed to go through always gets clogged. It ... read more
