Ease of Use And Performance:
The lightweight of this corded lawn mower is responsible for its portability. The mower can be easily carried along to the place where you want to use it or back to the storage space using the plastic handle on top of the deck.
The lightweight also enables easy maneuvering of the push behind mower. The long adjustable ergonomic handle with a comfortable grip and the rugged wheels contribute to the maneuverability of the mower.
The mower can not only be moved along in flat terrains but can easily work up obstacles or be moved uphill. The cord may pose a problem if you are using a corded mower for the first time.
You need to be extra cautious so that the cord is not damaged by running over it. There is a limitation with corded mowers I.e your mowing is restricted to the length of the cord.
The handle of the lawnmower can be adjusted in accordance with the height of the operator. This takes off any strain from the operator’s back and enables easy mowing. The handle can also be folded to collapse on the mower deck so that it can be stored in a compact form without utilizing much space.
Starting the Black and Decker MM2000 is pretty simple. You need to plug the mower to an electric outlet through the extension cord, push the start button and then engage the handlebar to start with your mowing job. The 13 amp motor is extremely powerful and can aid in doing the job with ease.
The 20” wide cutting deck is accompanied with a razor-sharp blade that makes precise cuts and even tall rough grass or crabgrass can be tackled with ease. The flat side deck with the Edge Max technology enables you to go right up to the edge of the walls or fence.
The height of the deck can be easily adjusted using the single lever on the side. You can set up the deck at seven pre-determined positions between 1.5” and 4”.
The Black and Decker MM2000 offers three modes of clippings management. You can either bag them or mulch them or side discharge them.
Engaging the mulching plug will result in the clippings being diced or chopped into finer pieces which are then disposed of off into the ground so that they decompose easily providing nutrients for the grass.
The bag has a large 13-gallon space which need not be emptied constantly. It can be easily removed from the mower unit and emptied when necessary.
We have already mentioned before that this is an environment-friendly mower. The mower does not emit harmful fumes that cause environmental hazards.
You do not have to worry about any sound that may disturb your neighbors as this is a quiet mower and does not make any sound. The mower also does not contribute to the overall carbon footprint of the household.
Maintenance of the Black and Decker MM2000 is pretty simple. You need to clean the blades on a regular basis just after the mowing is done and the blades need occasional sharpening. There are no extensive maintenance methods needed for this mower.
