Black & Decker CM1836 Cordless Electric Lawn Mower Review

Power and Height

Neighbours will not be worried when you are mowing the lawn as the mower is very quiet and easy to start. You will really notice the difference if you have been using a gas mower in the past.  It is also easy to change the height, so regardless of who is mowing the lawn, the height will be right. It is also possible to fold the Black & Decker CM1836 18-Inch 36-Volt Cordless Electric Lawn Mower so it will not take up a lot of room in the shed. The problem could be not changing height back and mowing at an uncomfortable position


To make the job a lot easier, the motor is incredibly powerful and thanks to a new and improved blade, there is no need to go over the same part time and time again.  It may seem hard to believe but this mower can clear a 1/3 of an acre lawn before the battery needs to be recharged. If you have had a summer where the grass has grown a lot, there could be an issue with using the mower on a regular basis. With a gas mower it can just be filled up and used again and again, but if the battery is dead, nothing is happening until it has been recharged. You might just have to wait a few days before the lawn is cut as you need to find the time and hope that the weather stays fine.

Save Money and Gain Fertilizer

You will not need to fertilize the lawn as this mower will put the goodness back into the lawn as it will mulch the cut grass and leave it on the lawn to act as natural fertilizer. What is not left can easily be removed as the bag at the back can be lifted through the gap in the handles making it very easy to empty. As well as providing fertilizer there are zero emissions connected to this machine meaning that it is one of the greenest mowers you can buy. When charging it is also environmentally friendly as the systems are Energy Star level and this means that there will be less energy used per mow and therefor you will save money in the process.


There are 4 wheels and all of these can be raised or lowered just by using the one lever. This can be time saving if it is meant to happen, but if the lever is knocked by accident the mower will not be at the height that is required. It could be easy to raise or lower them by mistake and have problems with the last of the work. Checking the wheels may not take long but is important.

Pros and Cons

You don’t have to worry that the mower will not last long or that you will be faced with heavy bills after just a few uses as there is a 2 year guarantee. As Black and Decker have been around for almost 100 years, they have built up a reputation of being innovators when it comes to technology and the designs are admired by many. With sales around the world, there is not another company that can lay claim to the help that has been provided by Black and Decker.
The only things to worry about is keeping the battery charged and keeping the wheels at the height you want to avoid a lawn that does not meet your standards.


The Black and Decker CM1836 is such a great lawn mower. We are totally in love with our model and we highly recommend that you get yours.
