  1. Cynthia C says:

    I think this cordless motor is great for the environment. I know that gas powered mowers create a lot of air pollution.

  2. Deborah R says:

    I like that you can mulch or bag with this mower. Overall, the features are great.

  3. beth shepherd says:

    Great Reliable product
    thank you

  4. Kathie says:

    I hope the battery on this one lasts longer than 2 seasons like the one my husband and I had to replace last summer.

  5. Regina M says:

    They have a great product. Would love to know the battery life, and instructions on maximizing its’ life.

  6. Betty says:

    Great that the charge can reliably deal with 1/3 acre. Rechargables were never really a consideration if you had anything close to a normal size yard.
    There should be instructions on how to maximize battery life attached to the mower itself.

  9. Sue D says:

    I would like to try this–I have a terrible time with pull cords.

  10. Rita Sheppard says:

    I think this mower is a great step toward easier mowing — easier starting and moving my grass.

  11. Solducky says:

    This sounds really great! We would need a second battery to swap in after the 1/3 acre, but I would much rather do that than keep wasting gas. Neat that it is self-propelled too.

  12. Debra G says:

    Love the cordless part! Thanks for the opportunity to win it.

  13. Sunshyn V says:

    We could really use this for our very large yard. Our tractor mower broke 2 years ago, and the layoff has left us unable to get it fixed.

  14. Ann Council says:

    The Mower would be great for me to use since I’ve had two back operations and no longer can pull that cord!

  15. James says:

    Looks great but what would I use to aggravate the neighbors at dawn on Saturdays? Maybe I’ll have to get a rooster.

  16. ellen says:

    Trying to become more environmentally friendly is sometimes costly, initially, but I like how this compares price wise with the traditional gas mowers. I also like the power it has- so many electric items especially yard work arent very powerful and in the past were frustrating to work with.
    I also like quite a few of the other features- easy starting, mulching, and the battery is removable.
    Thanks for the chance!

    Hello, the Black & Decker’s® 36V Variable-Speed Self-Propelled Cordless Rechargeable Mower would be a great addition to my yard care regime. I wouldn’t need my husband to start the mower for me anymore and it looks like I could take it in my garden and mow my grass paths with its compact design. I would love this mower. Thanks for a great giveaway!

  20. Erin Walsh says:

    I love that it’s both green and cordless. Thanks for the chance to win this!

  24. Mike S. says:

    +1 – The new B&D mower sounds like it’s just what the Dr. ordered for me. I’m aggrivated by loud noises, so an electric would be great, and I’m also very annoyed by doing yearly maintenance on my old gas mower (from 1981) when I use it a whopping 5 or 6 times per year (we have lax lawn ordinances). I would love to ditch my old mower, my gas can, oil mix, lawn mower specific tools, maintenance manual, and ear muffs and get a B&D electric rechargable mower (provided, of course, it does a good job)!

    +2 – I liked you (number 134) and commented on your facebook page.

    +10 – I’m a longtime subscriber of your email newsletter.

  25. Gloria J. says:

    I love that you can mow without putting exhaust into the environment as well as how quiet the lawnmower is compared to a gas powered.

  26. Jerry Maloney says:

    This is sure a great item, easy to maintain and great for the environment.

  27. Amy Brewer says:

    I would love this for my yard. I love everything that it has to offer. Cuts up to 1/3 of an acre on one charge is cool..

  28. Mary says:

    Oh my gosh! This is just exactly what I’ve been waiting for! I’m so sensitive to exhaust fumes that I have to shut myself in the house while my husband mows. I’d like to help him, but just can’t. With this, I’d be able to do the mowing when he can’t (or just doesn’t – right, girls? LOL).

  29. letessha w. says:

    I love the Black & Decker Cordless Mower! The two things that stood out the most to me were ‘highly efficient motor’ and ‘self propelled’. That convinced me!

  35. Beth B says:

    love the fact that i can adjust the the height with 1 lever, well that and everything else.

  37. Debbie Dorsett says:

    Nice! We have a nice large yard; a rechargable mower that would be able to mow the entire thing would be great

  38. David says:

    I think the new Black & Decker Cordless Mower is awesome, especially with the price of gas going up.

  39. Cindi says:

    This Black and Decker Rechargeable Mower has so many
    fabulous features and benefits. We have quite a large
    yard to cut and we do use a push mower! I like how this
    mower will cut 1/3 of an acre home site with one battery
    charging…rear bag or mulching conversion are also
    great helpful benefits for our family!
    Many thanks, Cindi

  40. Cindi says:

    +2 I “Like” you on Facebook.
    Also, I commented on your wall about why I like what
    I am reading about the Black and Decker Rechargeable
    Mower. Our weed eater uses rechargeable batteries…
    Thanks, Cindi

  41. Bill Fellner says:

    This would be very nice to use for the front. It would also be nice for my 4 year old son to help with. The noise level wouldn’t be so bad!

  45. Kristi C says:

    I would love to have this mower. No longer have to have gasoline on hand to mow the yard would be great.

  46. Gaye McGill says:

    This mower looks great. I once had an electric mower that I loved, but I kept running over the cord. This Black & Decker cordless solves that problem and, of course, they’re a brand that’s trusted for excellence.

    Have the corded m100 from black and decker and it’s 20 years old and still works…but I’d love to replace it with this one :D

  54. Tariq Hussain says:

    Instant start seems an awesome thing to have. Will make my mowing much more bearable for my neighbours. I am assuming it will be much less noisy. Hope I win

  55. Frank G says:

    All features described make this machine sound like lots of fun to operate! Currently, I take care of my own lawns as well as the lawns of my two sisters-in-law just to help out. I’ll bet the charge would last enough to cover all three yards on any given Saturday morning. Can’t wait to take this machine for a ride!

  56. Danetta says:

    It looks awesome! Very environmentally friendly. Would be great to own one!

  57. Rachel says:

    I have the edger/trimmer and it’s fantastic. I think this mower would be a great replacement so I don’t have to deal with gas anymore.

  58. Denice P says:

    i like the it has no slip grip. also that is easy to clean and that it is guaranteed for life. i know that black and decker make good stuff so i know it will last. thanks for the opportunity.

  59. Jacob LaFountaine says:

    I love it. Just wonder how effective it would be on taller grass

  60. DL Hubbard says:

    With the price of gas going up, and our global warming, this would be great to start making changes for the greening of my household.

  73. Thomas L says:

    Great idea, I tired of running over the cord.

  74. Terri K says:

    I might be able to help with lawn mowing since I wouldn’t have to tug the starter rope after locating the gas can for the current mower. The bagging option saves the follow-up raking currently required. Great opportunity, thanks.

  75. Larry Dunton says:

    Any time you can avert the use of oil products it is fantastic!!!
    A great looking Mower!

  76. VickieB says:

  79. clynsg says:

    I think it is a great idea–both for the environment, and because I can never seem to get a regular mower started!

  80. jolene says:

    i think its neat

  81. Holly says:

    This would be so much better for the environment than our gasoline powered mower. And self-propelled would be so much easier than pushing our mower. A great product!

  82. Wendy S says:

    Sounds great. Thanks.

  83. I think this mower is pretty awesome and has great features!

  84. Carol Bryant says:

    I like it that you can mulch. Thanks for the giveaway.

    Looks great. We bought a cordless mower a couple years ago, but it wasn’t strong enough to mow anything even a little bit long. Looks like this one finally has the power to do a great job!

  88. Dani says:

    I love the mower especially that it has a mulching conversion!

  89. Kyle says:

    liked on facebook and would like to own the mower

    This new, Black & Decker Cordless Mower is spectacular. I’m comparing it to the mower I used over 40 years ago when I cut the grass. Of course, present-day technology didn’t exist and there was nothing that came close to today’s offerings. I watched the trailer and it is great. I’m sure using the new Black & Decker is actually FUN compared to what I used.

  125. Lisa Brown says:
