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.

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

Battery Does Not Last More Than 15 Minutes
I was excited to purchase this trimmer after reading reviews that the battery would last up to 45 minutes to an hour. I only live on a 1/3 acre lot with very little edging and trimming and the battery does not last for more than 15 minutes. And this is on the low setting. Very, very disappointing and will look at possibly returning this purchase.

Jade,
I am sorry you are dissatisfied with the battery life on your CORE string trimmer. The batteries on these units can run up to 70 minutes. If you would like to return the unit, you are more than welcome to within 30 days, but we will need to contact the manufacturer for the specifics on your return. Thank you for your review.

Best Piece Of Equipment Available
After reading a lot of the earlier reviews, I have to agree with some and disagree with some. I've had my trimmer for 2-3 years and absolutely love it. It was a Fathers's Day gift and I've never been more impressed with anything like it. It was the store demo but has run like a top since I got it.

I personally do not think it is too heavy, the battery has never run down to zero (and I have a BIG yard), it's quiet, solid, nicely balanced, has a great warranty, and is a great value for the... more

Love Not Having To Pull A Cord!
Love my new string trimmer....so far. I have yet had to replace the original trimmer line it came with, and I have used it several times on 2 acres!

I will be totally convinced once I have to reload the line and see if it's easy.

I just may have to order some of that trimmer line from CORE as well. I'm impressed with its performance so far.

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.

It's Been Working Great
After waiting for my old gas trimmer to die (it was a great one but finally....) I decided to try this one. I have a large area to do periodically with some tough weeds so I wanted to be sure I had enough power. I've been very happy with this purchase. The power is fine although I find myself going a little slower than I used to.

I think that is me trying not to jam it rather than any lack on the part of the CORE, I haven't jammed it yet over a months time and multiple uses. The balance... more

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

Great But No Long Term Battery
Works great and has long charge life if used right after charge, does not hold charge after couple days have to recharge.
Pros: Quiet, High Quality, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Expensive, Battery Life Good If Used Right After Charge
