Electric mower curb find, Black and Decker CMM1000, 24V motor and lead acid batteries work, Has charger, Fried electronics bypassed
I found a Black and Decker CMM1000 24V cordless electric mower discarded at the curb recently. The motor works and the 2 12V lead acid batteries are holding a charge.
It even has a charger.
The circuit board electronics are apparently fried so I will bypass them with a simple on off switch.
I had expected to salvage a few parts and not find so easy a solution to having a running mower.
When the lead acid batteries run down I can replace them with lead acid or from the numerous choices in battery technology available today.
Waste not want not.
