My old mower vibrated so badly after loaning it to my neighbor that I finally went out and replaced it with the B&D MM1800. I'm so glad I did. After putting it together, by myself, it was a real pleasure to mow the grass. No vibration and it cut the grass just fine. Even has an optional take out mulcher if you want to use that. I had read some reviews of people complaining that it didn't cut very well and that something on the handle broke. Can't figure out what could break but I do have an answer to the cutting problem. They didn't read the manual! It states that you shouldn't cut more than a 1/3 of the grass blade. If grass is longer set mower higher and then wait a couple of days and set mower lower and cut it down then to the height that you want. People, just read the manual! It's all there! I'm very happy with the MM 1800 and would suggest it to anyone with a small to medium size lawn. Anything bigger I would suggest a bigger lawn mower or a gardening service. LOL.
