Customer Question

I have the SPCM 1936 self-propelled mower which comes with a RB-3612 batter. The Black & Decker store sold me a 'backup' batter, the RB-3610 which they say is safe to use in my mower. But the manual could be read to imply that I should only use the RB-3612.

Can I safely use the RB-3610 in my mower.

Thanks,
