Is the Black and Decker SPCM1936 really worth the extra cost?
Why does it say the mower weighs so much, is the battery very heavy? I am a short, older woman who is tired of pushing heavy gas mowers just to mow my small, uneven front yard.

I am a 46 year old & Battery is heavy to me. But this mower can be charged while battery is in the mower. I love this mower because it has a speed level you can adjust. Moves so easily I have it set to medium speed because I could not keep up to the fast speed. The mower was pushing me forward quickly. Also good that you can adjust the wheel lever on how high & low you want to cut your grass. I love not having to work so hard cutting my grass.
The majority of the weight is the battery. It's about the same size and weight as a car battery. You have to lift the battery out to charge it, which seems like a bad design.
If you do buy a gas mower, spend a bit more and get one with a Honda motor.
