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

Core Gasless Rocks!
I'm not easy to please but this rig PLEASES me! Excellent power. WAY better than gas 'cause it's clean and quiet and easily as powerful. Yeah, it doesn't last quite as long as they say it will but I've been working it really hard. Two power packs will solve that if I want. Amazing technology. Perfectly balanced. I love it!

Good But Could Be Better
The trimmer seems to have enough power to be used in normal residential situations. My main concern is when you need the additional RPM's the small thumb controlled switch on top is not easy to apply pressure to. The speed differential should be in the trigger depending on how hard you squeeze. The thumb button is terrible.

Better Than I Expected
Three years ago, I switched from my "finally bit the dust" battery operated weed trimmer to a gas powered Ryobi. I had trouble getting it started every time, I couldn't cut evenly, and it was so heavy I couldn't use it for very long. I finally decided on replacing it with another battery powered and did my homework before finally ordering the Core string trimmer. It's long but the adjustable handle permits good balance, it's heavier than my old one battery one but way better than... more

Best Trimmer I've Ever Used
In the past 40 years I've been frustrated with so many types of trimmers, but this slices through weeds like none other. As powerful as my previous gas model and love that this is battery operated.

Okay
I enjoy the product so far. My complaint is the that the manual is written by someone that has never tried to follow their own instructions, which is typical of most products. The other problem as with most companies, you can never get anyone on the telephone to answer a question in their customer service departments.

Then if you can get a real person, they don't know the answer and you get transferred to someone else who doesn't know the answer, etc, etc, etc. If you are going to have... more

Impressive
I am an elderly female adult who had one struggle too many with a gas powered string trimmer. My objective was to find a trimmer that would have enough power to last the time that I need to trim my property and be easy to start. I am happy to say that this Core gasless trimmer meets my needs. It starts immediately and easily which is delightful. I have yet to deplete the battery so the trimmer lasts longer than I do. I recommend this product.

So far I am very happy with the trimmer. Two trips around house without recharging. Did not charge extra battery yet as it is not needed. Will soon try out elsewhere to see how long battery good for during continuous use.

Bad Start, Good Recovery
The first unit I received was dead on arrival. Likely a bad switch. PED replaced it very quickly. The second unit is working well and I'm happy with its performance.
Pros: Quiet
Cons: First Unit Faulty

The Bull Of Heavy Duty Battery String Trimmers
I own two of these and Core has phased them out because they sold to Toro and Cub Cadet. They are making them. Will the Core be better? Get one while you can as this Battery trimmer will do an amazing amount of trimming and with the correct cord it will trim heavy weeds. The Spool is handy to refill and holds more line than you can use in one charge. A great product.
Pros: Quiet, High Quality, Exceeded Expectations, Fast
Cons: Expensive, Heavy

New Cgt 400 Trimmer
I don't usually write reviews, but I had such a good experience I felt compelled to. I've used an Echo 2-cycle trimmer for years, but after moving to the Colorado foothills (8000 ft. elev.) I could no longer keep it running well and had trouble starting it.

This Core trimmer works great. It's got all the power I need, it's super quiet, and none of the frustrations of the gas powered unit I had. I don't know how long the battery will last before going dead, but I haven't run out of juice... 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
