Earthwise 60220 Review

Welcome to our Earthwise 60220 review.

Earthwise is quickly looking to make its mark at the top of the power tools market. We were approached to undertake a review of the Earthwise 60220 lawn mower and it came well recommended. Our question was would it be able to compete with the more established big boys, like Black & Decker ?

Earthwise 60220 review
This is a cordless operated lawn mower from the Earthwise range. It comes with the three main types of grass distribution (Mulch, bagging, and a very effective side clip on discharger).

Starting the mower is simple with a key and push button. Cushioned handle set at an angle aids for a more comfortable mowing experience

The power battery is easily lifted from its compartment for recharging.

Finally the Earthwise 60220 offers a great folding mechanism, requiring minimal storage space.

Black & Decker SPCM1936 Review

Welcome to our Black & Decker SPCM1936 review.

In considering which Black & Decker cordless lawn mower to review, we immediately noticed the comparatively high cost of this model. We were keen to prove why this was priced at the more expensive end of electric lawn mowers. Of course, there is that saying “you get what you pay for”. Would this be the case here ?

Black & Decker SPCM1936 Review

Black and Decker have always had a great reputation for building good quality outdoor power tools, including electric lawn mowers. The SPCM1936 actually has two versions – with and without the self-propel feature. The latter being called the CM1936 (see below).


  • Full Descriptive Title : Black & Decker SPCM1936 19-Inch 36-Volt Cordless Electric Self-Propelled Lawn Mower With Removable Battery
  • Model : SPCM1936
  • Power : 36 volt rechargeable battery (lift out for remote charging)
  • Blade : Rotary
  • Cutting Height : 1.5” to 3.5”
  • Cutting Width : 19 inches
  • Propulsion : Self-propelled (Variable speed)
  • Start : Key and push button
  • Grass Collection : Mulching / Bagging / Rear Discharge
  • Wheel Size : Front – 7” / Rear – 9”
  • Weight : 92 pounds
  • Warranty : 2 years

Here is the lawn mower in action :


There are the obvious advantages of electric lawn mowers over their gas counterparts and these have been high-lighted here : Electric Lawn Mower reviews

The Black & Decker SPCM1936 has, not surprisingly, a lot of good features which make this model well worth considering. However, there are some things you might want to be aware of.

Good Points :

  • Quick assembly – There really is nothing to this. A couple of bolts and you are good to go.
  • Good adjustable features – Both the cutting length and height adjustment are very easy to change.
  • Sssshhhhh – it’s so quiet. You really can have a ‘normal’ conversation whilst this mower is switched on, and you certainly do not need ear protectors whilst working.
  • The key component to this model is, of course, the re-chargeable battery. The fact that it lifts out of the unit so easily gets a big tick of approval from us.

Area for Improvement :

  • It comes with only one safety key – so don’t lose it !!

Other things to be aware of :

  • As a safety feature, the back wheels lock up when you try to pull the mower backwards just after releasing the self-propel bar. The trick is to allow the mower to continue rolling a few inches after you release the bar and then pull the mower backwards.
  • Even when set of the slowest propulsion setting, this mower is quite swift. Therefore never pull the handle up when starting the mower up – it might just fly out of your hands.
  • Some people have questioned the SPCM1936 lawn mower’s power. However, this is not something that we would consider to be a problem.
  • Of course you need to appreciate that you are relying on a charged up battery, so you are never going to be mowing for days on end. The manufacturers recommend 1/3rd of an acre – which more than covers the average patch of family green.

If you think that the self-propelled version is a bit expensive, then the Black & Decker SPCM1936 does come in a push version Black & Decker CM1936 19-Inch 36-Volt Cordless Electric Lawn Mower With Removable Battery.

Personally, we don’t think that the small financial saving you make with the push model is worth losing the extra assistance you get with the self-propel model reviewed here.
