It has a 6.5 amp Black & Decker motor, and an 18" cutting path. The deck is made of plastic polymers, so it is light (35 pounds) and supposed to be easy to push. The cutting height can be adjusted with a single button, and the range is from 1" to 3.5". The LM175 can side-discharge or bag clippings, but does not come with a bag (this must be purchased separately). Out of Black & Decker's current lineup, this is the most basic electric lawn mower they offer. It must be plugged in to operate.
