The Black & Decker SPCM1936 19-inch, 36-volt cordless mower, with its very efficient design, will enable you to mow your yard without using gas. The variable operating speeds let you select how fast – or slow – you want to go, and, under good conditions you’ll be able to mow up to one-third of an acre of grass with the power-pack supplied. The design of the blade has been significantly improved from earlier models, so that it cuts grass more efficiently together with an improved time between charges. The Black & Decker SPCM1936 cordless lawn mower features a rust-resistant polymer cutting deck, which is lightweight and makes for quick cleaning. Push-button selection allows you to select between mulching, bagging, or rear discharge of the clippings.
You can mow the lawn each time you want without upsetting the neighbors with the SPCM1936 cordless lawn mower. Thats because its much quieter than gas-powered lawn mowers, after you start it with a key and the simple push of a button. The cutting height can be changed quickly by pulling a single lever, which moves all four wheels in unison. Because it can be folded away and stashed away using minimal space, the Black & Decker SPCM1936 cordless lawn mower has an advantage over traditional lawn mowers if you don’t have a spacious garage or shed.

There are no harmful emissions from using the Black & Decker SPCM1936 at all. The power is provided from a rechargeable battery, which can be lifted out and exchanged if it runs down while you mow, which will be required for larger lawns. The mower’s battery charger is 36-volt, and can be plugged into any standard power outlet. The Black & Decker SPCM1936 cordless lawn mower has been awarded an Energy Star mark, so it is energy-efficient and should use less energy, saving you some money.
Pros & Cons
The pros of this cordless lawn mower are the ergonomic design, and that fact that it is very light and easy to maneuver. The mower is quite and doesn’t hurt the ears and as far as driving it is concerned, anyone should be able to use it with ease. Using the mower’s self-propelling feature and simple height adjustment setting make it a breeze to operate. The lawn mower is very easy to clean, and cuts the grass from an average size yard very well. Once unpacked, getting the Black & Decker SPCM1936 cordless lawn mower ready to actually cut grass takes roughly 5 minutes. It is almost totally set up when it comes in the package, and the battery just takes several minutes to be fully charged.
The downsides of the SPCM1936 cordless lawn mower are that I found it a bit under powered, especially when using it on larger yards. If you have a big area of grass to cut then this is probably not the machine for you. I also found a few situations where the self propulsion doesn’t go slow enough, and also the unit itself takes some time to get up to full speed. After releasing the throttle the blade usually keeps cutting, which could be because of the cutting function bale being very lightly sprung. You have to bend over to insert the charging cord, because the charging port is in an awkward location. These issues might be minor irritations for most of us, but they are worth taking into consideration. Overall, this is a great little mower that is really good for the environment.
