The roar of a smoke-spewing, fossil-fuel-guzzling lawn mower on weekend mornings is no longer politically or environmentally correct. But being tethered to an extension cord for an electric mower or doing battle with a reel mower might not be appealing alternatives.

Enter the Black and Decker 24-volt Cordless Mulching Mower.

Simple to start, it doesn't require gas, oil or tune-ups. In short, it offers the freedom of a gas mower with the convenience of an electric machine.

A single charge will handle a 1/3-acre lawn -- or less if your lawn looks more like a hay field than a suburban plot. That's the drawback for those with larger lawns.

Mowing the lawn in sessions might be an option for those with slightly more acreage. The 24-volt sealed lead acid battery needs 10 hours to charge to 100 percent, although it will gain 60 to 70 percent capacity in four hours.

Just flip a switch to start the mower. A height adjustment moves all four wheels from 1-1/2" to 3-1/2" with the touch of a button. Chances are if you have a small lawn, you probably also have small storage space. The push handle folds down easily so the mower stores compactly.

Operate it as a mower by attaching the rear collection bag, or as a mulcher with the mulch plate.

At 76 pounds, the mower is fairly heavy and is not self-propelled which could make pushing it a chore on steeper terrain.

The mower comes fully assembled and includes the collection bag and mulch plate. The 19-inch polymer mower deck is covered by a lifetime warranty, while the rest of the machine is covered for two years.
