Whatever Happened to ... Twin-Blade Electric Mowers?

13 years ago


Does anyone here remember the twin-blade electric mowers? These were made by such makes as Sunbeam, MTD and Black & Decker, among others.

Unlike their single-bladed counterparts, twin-blade mowers run at higher speeds (read: two blades instead of one, obviously). I have a 1983 Sears Craftsman 91412 model (with the CPSC-compliant switch that you must hold down to turn motor on, let go and motor shuts off).

Sunbeam (later Aircap-Mastercut and MTD) and Black & Decker are two of the well-known manufacturers behind mowers like these.

Among the twin-blade mowers I'd like to find in the future:

Black & Decker U-273/8020 18" deluxe twin-blade mower

Black & Decker 8021 18" deluxe twin-blade mower

Black & Decker U-275(?)/8040 22" deluxe twin-blade mower

Black & Decker 8041 22" deluxe twin-blade mower
