Q: CGT 400 string trimmer - need battery specs. Lithium? Voltage?

THANKS,
-Bob

by Bob from Minnesota on August 05, 2012

A: Bob,

This is a lithium-based battery. Because the Core motor does not have windings as the standard electric motors do, there is little to know of the internal voltage loss. Therefore, it does not need the voltage to make up the power loss. The power cell that is integrated into this string trimmer uses a series of printed circuit boards to create the power that drives the unit for a steady power source with long run time.

While the CGT400 from Core is going to be cheaper than our "Good" model, this says nothing to it overall quality and ability to tackle tasks normally meant for gas string trimmers.

The CGT400 cordless string trimmer is reliable, lightweight and offers run times that are comparable to a similar sized gas-powered unit. It's well balanced, features an instant trigger start, a high-energy power cell, dual mode controls for torque and speed and a comfort grip handle.

Great Trimmer
My friend had purchase one, and I never though that a battery operated trimmer would do a decent job, so he showed me how it works at my home. I was truly amazed. I guess I am from the old school that if it wasn't gas, it couldn't have power. Once I used his, I purchased my own, but with an extra battery. I have a lot of property around the house to trim as well as, around the pond and creek. It did a real good job, and this weeding was very heavy duty.

I am glad I went for the second... more

Nice Equipment
The trimmer works extremely well and is nicely balanced once the battery is in place. Charging takes a short period and the charger is easy to understand. Excellent product.

Great Power For An Electric Trimmer!
The power is equal to my Stihl gas model. The battery outlasts me. Somewhat heavy but good balance. The charger was very quick. So far, I am more than satisfied.
Pros: Quiet, Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Easy To Store

Core Is Sweet!
Had my gas trimmer stolen out of my shop, which I hated using anyway because it was loud and heavy. This unit is light, super powerful, you can talk and use it. I almost never post reviews about products but I am digging this trimmer. I'm very happy with the product. It came with the upgraded 1 hr charger which was a nice surprise!

Well worth the money!

"Great! Local dealer told me they would not sell me this unit for $174.00 and if they did it would not include the charger or battery. They wanted $279 for the trimmer and an additional $150 for the battery and charger. Not only did I get all three, I got the upgraded charger... Bonus!"

Core String Trimmer
Yes, I work for mowersdirect.com. We saw this revolutionary new string trimmer at a trade show last October, and have been waiting for it to be available to offer to our customers ever since. The power created by the CORE motor is incredible! On low speed, this string trimmer will handle thick grass and weeds with no problem. The motor uses a series of circuit boards to create power that is equal to a 25cc gas engine. This string trimmer is also very lightweight, easy to handle and... more

Very Good Trimmer
I'm a landscaper and have been in the industry since 1996. I picked up one of these from my local dealer late last summer as I have been phasing to gasless equipment whenever I can. Power wise it has a bit more oomph than the Ryobi 40v line, and battery life is great. It is commercial quality so it will outlast anything else out there right now, Power is good, but still under what you would get with an Echo 21cc (usually I use echo 26cc trimmers), but it can handle most of what you would run... more

Finally, An Electric Trimmer That Works!
I've had electric trimmers in the past. All of them were difficult to use from the standpoint of the string itself. Because electric trimmers use a smaller gauge string, the line is constantly breaking and snagging inside the spool that trimming and edging got to be an enormous pain. Not so with the Core trimmer. It uses a .095 gauge with a double line. Works beautifully and quickly. It is a bit heavy but the job goes so quickly the weight isn't a problem. Very happy.
Pros: Fast, Quiet, Easy To Use, Reliable
Cons: Heavy
