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.

String Trimmers Direct Recommended

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.

At the heart of the CGT400 cordless string trimmer is the CORE Outdoor Power motor technology called Conductor Optimized Rotary Energy (CORE). CORE air-cooled motors are extremely light weight and have the... more

I Love My Core String Trimmer
No more gas. The Core string trimmer does everything I want it to do. Batt. last a long time an plenty of power. The only thing is if I leave the batt. in the string trimmer, it will go dead over time. I take it out an it does not loose its charge. I love it. I am going to buy the blower next. thanks

My Honest Review Of The Core Cgt400
Here goes:

I received the product in a timely manner the packaging was somewhat crushed and taped together as if it had been opened. The unit itself seemed to be undamaged so I kept it. In my opinion it should have been shipped in sturdier cardboard or put in another box.
I charged the battery fully and used the unit to trim the yard 80' x 120' and was pleased with the power, weight and balance and how quite the unit is.

The battery ran out before finishing the trimming. Note :I was... more

Does The Job
I replaced a small gas powered blower. Very pleased with the unit's abilities. Get two to three trims per charge on my one acre lot. Much quieter than my old trimmer plus I can start and stop while trimming with pulling a cord. Is not as robust as a commercial gas model in the same price range, but convenience is key.

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

A Great Trimmer!
I have owned gas and electric trimmers and this is by far the best. Yes....there are a couple cons, but the pros far outweigh them. It is powerful enough to cut tall thick grass and mine does it well. Is it as powerful as a gas trimmer...no...but close! But do I have to wonder if I have gas, was the oil mixed right or how many times do I have to pull this thing before it starts. Nope...I NEVER have those problems anymore! I finish the yard work...drop the battery in the charger and done.
