Q: Can I get an extra battery and charger? What would the cost be.

jsk

by John Koutroulelis from Pennsylvania on August 05, 2012

A: John - the Core Power CGT400 really doesn't have a "battery". 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. It is a revolutionary new technology not found on any other string trimmer on the market. You can purchase an extra power cell or a charger directly from Core Power.

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

Cons Of The Trimmer
Cannot run trimmer for more than 3minutes then I have to rewind line because it will not feed out.
Pros: Light Weight, Easy To Store
Cons: String, String Will Not Feed Out

Ted,
This sounds like either the line was put on incorrectly or the trimmer head may be defective, I would suggest giving Core a call to see if they can walk you through everything. The advancement of the line would be no different than any other trimmer with a similar feed.

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

Good Bye Gas, Oil And Fumes
I saw this Core gasless trimmer and thought I'd take a chance. Having gone through numerous gas powered models along with the usual problems of not starting consistently, having to buy and mix gas and oil and above all storing the gas cans in a garageless house, I decided to see what this "new technology" battery was all about. After charging the battery upon arrival I easily popped it into the handle and pushed the button. Instantly I could feel the power emitted by the trimmer... more

Excellent Trimmer - Good Edger
I have a medium-size corner lot with parkways - lots of edging. I usually finish without running out of battery but sometimes I don't quite finish especially with a heavy edging job. That said, I really really like this trimmer. It has the power to handle tough edging jobs and tons of just trimming work. It is very quiet and the heavy .095" line wears a long time reducing the number of times I have to feed line or refill the line spool. This is a very well balanced unit with a light... more

Trimmer
Extremely pleased with the quick response and arrival of the CORE Trimmer. The battery needed to be plugged in for charging which was simple to complete. Assembly was a breeze as was the use of the trimmer. The only thing not provided or available as an accessory that would improve this great trimmer is a shoulder strap. The trimmer is well balanced and does a super job on the yard and orchard. However, it does become taxing on the arms if used for an extended period.
