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

Poor Batteries
Had two batteries and was working on a job when the weed eater quit working. I put in the other battery and still nothing. I was very upset at the piece of equipment and even lost one battery on my way home because in my haste to get another weed eater. I left a battery on my truck bumper and lost it.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Features
Cons: Heavy, Low Quality, Expensive, Poor Batteries

Loves Yellowjackets!!
Easiest weeding ever. Have jerked my shoulder out of joint for years with varying models of weeders. With advent of ethanol none last more than a season or 2 before carburetor problems. Much sturdier than I anticipated, cuts bigger stuff, and I'm worn out before it is. Charges fast and holds charge. By far one of my better purchases!
Pros: Quiet, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again, Fast

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.

Battery Replaces Gas
When ordering I wasn't sure a battery trimmer could do the job my gas trimmer would do (when I got it started). I was wrong, so far I am very pleased with its performance. I have had the trimmer for several weeks now and I have no real complaints. I can tell you what I miss about my gas trimmer. I miss the gas the oil the priming and the starting routine. Although this has no quick charge after charging it will operate for about an hour. For me it was a great choice . THANKS.
Pros: Quiet, Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Light Weight

It Broke Down
I was amazed how balanced and lightweight this trimmer is. Plus the charge lasted longer than any other trimmer I could find. However, it did stop working because of some problem. Best of all, I called the company and sent it back (paid by them) and it was repaired and returned within a few days.
A great tool for the yard.
Pros: Fast, High Quality, Light Weight, Reliable
Cons: Expensive But Worth It

Tired Of Gas Trimmers
I got tired of gas trimmers, all have faulty gas lines just shoved in a hole in the tank. Found this one online, and couldn't be happier with it. Would like to find a fixed head for it, don't like the bump feed line.
Pros: Quiet, Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Have Only Used 4 Times Thus The Quality Rating
Cons: Would Like Fixed Head Option

First Cordless Electric Trimmer
I originally owned a corded electric trimmer given to me as a gift. Worked great but unwinding and rewinding the cord needed to reach all areas of the yard was tedious and time consuming. I would often let the trimming go for an extra week. Also had two new exterior outlets installed. Moved up to a gasoline trimmer. Although it was powerful and I no longer had to deal with the cord, it was heavy, not that easy to start, required mixing oil and gas and finally when a part needed replacement it... more

"Web site description of the product was spot on so there were no mis-perceptions. In particular was the fact that the battery maintains full power then flat out stops and needs recharging. This happened the first time I used it and I probably would have been on the phone complaining but I was aware of how it worked from online reviews. I put the battery on the charger and three hours later finished the trimming. I now start charging the battery before I start mowing the lawn. When I'm finished lawn cutting I have a fully charged battery and then do the trimming completely. I actually like the fact the battery always maintains full power. It would be nice to be able to monitor how much charge is left in battery but one full charge is enough to do my yard completely so as long as I start with a full charge everything is good."

I feel like I could cut down a tree with this bad boy! It is a little heavy to maneuver in comparison to others but have yet to run out of power.
