Question

black and decker electric lawnhog mower


I have an electric lawnmower for my small yard. However, since I turned 75 it is getting harder to lasso the cord from side to side to mow. Is anyone aware of a cord retractor that would fit on handle of mower. Unless there are (2) folks to manage cord while mower walks; it is unweildly to say the least. Suggestions, anyone?

Since this is the electrical section...
how about an extra outlet or two so you can use a shorter cord?

I live in a mobile home with ONE outdoor outlet, so that is not an option, but thanks for good common sense. I've already exhausted every angle for the dang mower cord.

I used to use a plug-in mower. Got tired of the cord and bought a Ryobi battery mower. Gave the corded mower to my buddy across the street.

I agree a battery operated mower would get rid of the whole problum.

This has an eye on it. You could figure a way to attach it to yer lawnmower.
