Bottom Line

The Black & Decker MTC220 was generally well-loved by consumers. It’s versatility to convert from a mower to a trimmer and edger was invaluable for most. The MTC220 exceeded expectations in terms of power and cutting quality. This machine could cut and did it very well. The mower though is built for lawns of up to 750 square feet in size, anything larger would be a little too much for the mower to be used efficiently. The mower shines the most when used in lawns with lots of obstacles. Its lightweight and bladeless design mean that the mower can literally go where no other mower can. If your lawn fits the description above, the Black & Decker MTC220 is definitely worth looking at.
