BLACK+DECKER CM2043C Lawn Mower Kit Features and Specifications
BLACK+DECKER CM2043C Lawn Mower Kit consists of:
- BLACK+DECKER CM2043 cordless lawn mower,
- a pair of BLACK+DECKER LBX2040 40V MAX 2.0Ah lithium batteries,
- one 40V MAX lithium battery charger.
BLACK+DECKER CM2043 cordless lawn mower features physical dimensions of 36.6 x 22.9 x 20.5 inches (~93 x 58 x 52 cm) and it weighs 47 pounds (~21.3 kg) which isn't much for a cordless lawn mower with 20-inch (50.8 cm) wide cutting path.
BLACK+DECKER CM2043 cordless lawn mower is designed as a 3-in-1 unit - grass clippings can be disposed of in 3 different ways: mulching, bagging, or side discharging.
Cutting height is adjustable using a single lever - there are 7 individual positions ranging from 1.5 to 4 inches (~3.8 - 10.2 cm).
BLACK+DECKER CM2043 cordless lawn mower is powered by a highly efficient, variable-speed electric motor. Also, the BLACK+DECKER CM2043C lawn mower kit comes with a pair of 40V 2.0Ah lithium batteries.
Single LBX2040 battery requires 3-4 hours of charging and it lasts for about 25-40 minutes (30 minutes on average) when mowing the lawn.
However, despite having a rather sharp blade, BLACK+DECKER CM2043 cordless lawn mower could feature a stronger motor with larger batteries that could store more energy - LBX2040 batteries feature an actual voltage of 36V and capacity of 2.0Ah and are able to store ~72 Wh of energy, each.
Note: BLACK+DECKER LBX2040 batteries are compatible with many other cordless tools powered by BLACK+DECKER 40V MAX lithium batteries.
When mowing tougher or taller grass, if the motor is struggling and especially if the motor is stalling from time to time, it is highly recommended to increase the cutting height slightly, mow the lawn, and after a few days to finish mowing the lawn to the desired height.
BLACK+DECKER CM2043C cordless lawn mower kit is suitable for lawns up to 1/4 acre (~10890 sq. ft. or ~1011 m2) - this recommendation is correct if the lawn is mowed regularly and there isn't tough grass (at least not much) that has to be cut down by much.
BLACK+DECKER CM2043 cordless lawn mower also features a foldable handle, allowing the user to store the lawn mower easily, without much space needed.
Long Story Short: If You are looking for a simple to use and maintain cordless lawn mower and You have a small to medium size lawn with not too tough grass, consider this lawn mower kit.
BLACK+DECKER CM2043 cordless lawn mower is able to cut through tougher grass, but the cutting height should be adjusted when cutting for the first time or after a longer time - other than that, this is a very fine unit that comes at a rather acceptable price.
