Question about Black & Decker 18", 6.5a Electric Mower
If you were cutting long grass it sounds like you may have burnt the motor out. It may have over heated. they are not made to cut long grass. You don't say whether the motor runs but not the blades if this is the case you may have sheared the shear pin in the blade assembly.

The high grass causes more drag than shorter grass. This means more friction. The tilting lessens the drag, so less friction, the speed increases. It ma need a sharpening but it sounds as though it is running correctly. As you say, it is older so you can't expect new performance. Good luck...Lee

Nope. If the grass is too high, knock it down to size with a weedeater first. These electric mowers cannot handle the tall, high stuff. If you do, you will surely burn it up.
