One note though, it is not sealed, the motor gets very dirty during use. I suggest opening up and cleaning regularly with a blast of compressed air or a leaf blower. The screws don't come out easy - I'm going to replace them with quick release pins so I can throughly clean mine up after every use.
I decided to try to leave the Black and Decker world and see what else I could find.
Bear in mind, I did not consider gas because I don't have the room to keep fuel around and I have a modest size yard. I did not want cordless battery power because I didn't want to have to keep batteries alive (some require charge/discharge cycles all winter) or buy new batteries.
Corded lawn mowers are a fine solution. Many complain about "cord management", but here's the trick. Your lawn never changes. Unless you are a professional landscaper (and if you are, buy a gas mower), then you always mow the same lawn. So the trick is to come up with a mowing pattern where you mow away from the outlet and never trip over the cord. Once you have a pattern, stick with it and you can mow quickly.
Which brings me to the Greenworks 25022 20" electric bag/mulch/side discharge mower. It costs a bit more than the Black and Decker, but what a difference. First, the deck of the mower is metal, not plastic! That means it is thinner than the B&D. Also, with more metal the top is not covered in bulky plastic. I have a sewer cleanout stand-pipe in my yard. My Black and Decker MM1800 could never mow close to it so I always had to get out the weed whacker. I was amazed that the Greenworks 25022 could mow so close that there was no need to come back for cleanup. I did it all in 1 pass.
The amazing thing is that the mower is 20" instead of the 18" of the B&D, meaning I could mow my lawn faster with fewer passes, yet it could also get closer to things due to the smaller shroud over the blade.
Other nice features include very large rear tires, what might be the largest in the industry. They make it far easier to maneuver than models with 7" or 8" wheels. Cord management is a snap with a nice pig-tail cord that secures nicely. The B&D model didn't have a pigtail, just a plug on the device itself, and the cord was harder to keep in.
This mower also permits side-discharge. I normally just mulch, but it is nice to have that as an option in addition to bagging.
The mower activates with a simple bar that has a 1-button safety. The safety is easy enough to use to not be obtrusive and the bar is full length so you can grab it from either side.
The height adjustment of this mower is far higher quality than the B&D height adjust. Strong metal controls with positive stops made height adjustment a snap.
For the space limited, the handle folds very easily. The middle bar doesn't even need to be unscrewed as there are folding posts to "snap" it into place, and the screws on the bottom are retained in the unit when it folds so there are no parts to lose.
I am a happy convert from Black and Decker, and recommend you give this mower a try!
Update from November 2011:
When I first reviewed the mower, I commented that I was just mulching. This weekend I gave the bagging feature a try because I wanted to mow up the leaves all of my yard. If you mulch those you just make a mess, so I needed to bag. The bag installed easily - just lift the spring-loaded back door, remove the mulching plug, and the bag has 2 hooked to secure it. The bag filled up quickly which was to be expected given the large number of leaves I was mowing, but it was easy to empty. One thing I quickly noticed - the bag is narrow enough to fit between the handlebars. As a result, I could pick it straight up without bending over and pulling all the way back. I spilled less clippings and got it emptied far faster. The bag is obviously well thought out and rounds out a great tool that I recommend with no reservations.
Update from Spring 2013:
The mower is still going strong. Just another note - I abuse this thing. I leave it chained under my deck all year long since I don't have a garage or a tool shed. It sits in the rain, the snow, the heat, and the cold. Amazingly, every spring I plug it in, squeeze the handle, and it starts right up. Can't say that for even lots of gas mowers. Still gets my recommendation!
Update from Spring 2014:
I tried a Black and Decker mower this year that was battery operated. It lasted 2 weeks and died when the blade hit a root and bent 90 degrees. I went back over to my Greenworks 25022. It's started to rust a bit (yes, I still keep it outside), but I plugged it in and cut my lawn in a snap. Still a happy customer!
A little backstory about why i chose to go with an electric mower: My weekly chore growing up was having to cut the lawn at my parents (1/3 acre); my parents had a craftsman mower which had powered wheels and ran on gasoline. The powered wheels were nice to have because the backyard had a slight downward hill to it but I hated dealing with the gasoline. I disliked having to go refill (albeit occasionally) the gas can or getting gasoline on my hands while trying to fill the mower with gas. sometimes, I would spill a little gas while trying to fill the mower. Not a dealbreaker but it was just annoying.
I bought a new house recently and this lawn is significantly smaller (1/8 acre) and pretty level so I decided to give this corded mower a try. Plus, my neighbor across the street, whose house was situated on a similarly sized plot, used an electric mower and he told me that he's never had a problem.
The toughest part about using a corded mower is figuring out the best way to maneuver/cut the lawn without having to constantly adjust the power cord. Once you get that down, you will enjoy using this mower - it's got enough power to handle lawn mowing and even the occasional wayward branch. It's easy to maneuver and switch between bagging/mulching. I like how the top half of the handle is held by easy-release brackets so that you can fold the top half of the push bar when you store the mower. The craftsman one my parents had did not have this feature and the mower took up much more space in their shed. It's easy to adjust the height of the blade, there's only one lever to adjust.
Here's a couple of tips for those considering doing the switch to electric mowers.
1.Buy yourself a nice extension cord that will A) stand out from the lawn color and B) reach from the power source to the farthest corner of your lawn. I originally used the "outdoor" extension cord that i had for the christmas ornaments which was a dark green color. While I never had a mishap running over the cord, it took more effort trying to locate it as I was mowing the lawn. I switched to 50ft BRIGHT ORANGE power cord and have been using it ever since.
2. Figure out the best way to mow based on how your lawn is situated and where the power source is. NOW MEMORIZE THAT PATTERN. It took a few mowing sessions for me to determine the best way to mow without having to constantly reposition the power cord but I've got it memorized now and I just follow that same pattern every time I mow. I don't mind that its a corded mower one bit. Generally, its easiest to start at the point in the lawn that's closest to the outlet and end at the furthest point from the lawn. I keep the cord between my two legs while I mow so that when I do the U turn at the edge of the lawn to do the next line of grass, the cord easily follows behind the mower.
All in all, this is a great mower at a great price, its got all the power and features that one could need. It is a little quieter than a gas mower so for those of you go-getters who insist on mowing the lawn at 8am on Saturday when the rest of the world is sleeping in, your neighbors will thank you.
