Black & Decker 18” Mulching Mover MMW275
Black & Decker 18” Mulching Mover MM275
If you have a relatively small yard and dislike working with potentially dangerous gas-powered machinery as much as I do then the Black & Decker 18” Mulching Mover MMW275 is a very good choice.
I have had this mover for well over five years now and it has served me well. Aside from the plus of being electrically operated, the features that attracted me to this mower is that it will either discharge the mulch from the side for pickup later on or you can purchase an optional grass bag which unzips for easy disposal. It was a minor additional investment. The only down side is it’s a little heavier to push with a full bag of mulch so I often opt to just go with the side mulching feature.
My yard is fairly small but has a slope to it. Yet even a relatively petite woman like myself can operate this mover with ease provided you have an outdoor outlet and an extension cord of the proper length for your requirements. The handle has a place for the cord so as not to let is get tangled up or run over. That’s the one down side of an electric mower as far as I am concerned.
The maintenance for this mower is fairly simple. Obviously you need to unplug it prior to storage. As with any other mower, it’s important to keep the blade sharpened and balanced for optimum performance. In addition, always check out and clean caked grass which may have accumulated inside after each usage.
This model comes with a full two-year home use warranty and is backed by the good name of Black and Decker.
