Black and Decker Lawn Hog MM875
This is easily the best lawnmower I have ever owned! It has all the traditional advantages of being a convertible bagging mower/mulching mower. I can pick up the clippings and use them for compost, I can use it to pick up the leaves on the yard, or I can be lazy and just mulch everything!
But, of course, the key benefit is the electric motor. I’ve owned this mower for almost three years now and have never had to do a thing in the way of maintenance. No oil, no lubrication, no filters, nothing. I never have to worry about whether or not it will start, there’s no priming, there’s no spilling gasoline on the grass when you run out in the middle of the job. You just plug it in and go. I’ve heard other people complain about the “difficulty” of dragging a cord around with you, but this is really no big deal. You quickly get used to it, and if you set yourself up so that you’re always moving away from the side of the yard where your cord is plugged in you never have to worry about crossing the cord.
And if all the money you save from not having to buy gasoline and oil isn’t enough, you can feel good about being “green”! We all know gasoline powered lawnmowers belch smoke like crazy. The only emissions associated with this mower are what a state-of-the-art power plant has to emit to produce a few watts of electricity!
