The BLACK+DECKER CM2040 Lithium 3-in-1 Cordless Mower, 20-Inch, 40-volt features (2) 2.5 Ah – 40V Max Lithium Batteries for 30-45 min of mowing time. This mower offers mulching, bagging and side discharge for multiple mowing modes. This mower is not self-propelled but is light enough for my old mother not to strain while pushing it around. It can automatically detect thick grass, thanks to the AutoSense technology, it will determine the thickness of grass and makes power adjustments accordingly. For thicker grass, it will increase the power to the motor while in a lighter grass, it will lower the power to conserve battery life and extend runtime.
The BLACK+DECKER CM2040 is great for the homeowner who does not maintain gas powered mowers. There is no rocket science with gas and oil involved, just recharge the batteries and no cords were harmed in the process of mowing. The mower comes with two batteries, for double the runtime. When not in use, the extra battery can be stored in a convenient compartment on the top of the mower. The extra battery also provides a backup that can be used with the system of 40V MAX BLACK+DECKER lawn & garden tools.
The variable speed motor allows conserving the battery for greater efficiency and runtime. The EdgeMax deck design allows cutting up to the edge of fencing and flower beds, providing a clean and manicured lawn fast. This mower also features a 20-inch wide cutting patch, with a 6-setting height adjustment that allows choosing the height of cut between 1-1/2 Inch to 4 Inch. It has a 15-gallon nylon collection bag that allows you to check fill levels. This mower is backed by Black & Decker’s 2-year limited warranty.
In short, BLACK+DECKER CM2040 is great ease of use, lightweight, easy to push, easy to clean and maintenance. It is extremely easy to assemble, instructions are clear and easy to read. This mower is highly recommended, especially for older dad/mom who hates gas powered mowers and requires minimal maintenance.
