Features

The CGT400 trimmer is reliable, lightweight and will run just as long as a tank of gas. It’s perfectly balanced and features an instant trigger start, high-energy Power Cell, dual-mode controls for torque and speed, open view grass guard and a comfort grip handle. CORE outdoor power has designed and continues to develop a revolutionary new motor technology called Conductor Optimized Rotary Energy (CORE™) specifically for use in its new line of gas less™ emission-free outdoor power equipment. CORE™ air-cooled motors are extremely light weight and have the ability to produce as much power as two-cycle gas engines currently used for a variety of professional and consumer outdoor power equipment products. With the highest energy factor per weight of any existing motor or engine, and one-third to one-fifth the size and use of raw materials. CORE™ technology is designed to replace existing conventional motion devices, motors, and engines. This lightweight, long life, virtually maintenance free CGT400 trimmer will retail at a price comparable with high quality commercial gasoline trimmers on the market today.

Additional Features

  • Dual Mode Power Control- SPEED for normal grass trimming, or TORQUE for optimum performance and longer run time
  • Powered with a state of the art prismatic high-energy Power Cell operating in concert with smart-core electronics allow run times equal to a tank of gas
  • 25% more TORQUE than at 25cc 2 cycle commercial trimmer
  • Designed and assembled in the USA

Customer Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome, consistent power! I am very, very pleased and impressed. This CORE string trimmer has the power of a professional gasoline powered trimmer, yet is quite. The power is consistent and very easy to change string on the rare occasion it's need changing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gotta give this five stars I wanted to give this only 4 stars. I wish the length was adjustable for shorter people (like my wife) and I wish the head would rotate for easier touch up of edging. However, The dang thing is simply so good I have to give it five stars. The manufacturer will respond to your emails very quickly. They are super friendly and I have no doubts their service will be top notch if I actually need it. As for the trimmer itself, there is simply power galore. Easily as much cutting power than my troy built gas unit I got fed up with. I took a serious look at the Black and Decker 40 volt, the Worx, 40 volt, and the Toro 40 volt. I took a quick look at the Kobalt as well. Most of the others were packed with features and nifty easy adjustments but there are plenty of quality issues with each of the above. Now maybe one of those would have worked out for me, but the Core CTG400 was just too nice to pass up. I decided to take a chance on the better one, paying a lot more than the others cost, but hoping the quality was what I expected. The first time I used it I was simply won over. If this thing ever wears out on me I want another. $279 well spent. I couldn't be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plenty of power without the gas, oil ,smoke, smell and noise! My ECHO gas trimmer needed a new carburetor after only 5 years of residential use and since I was already fed up with the temper mental personality of small gas engines I decided to find a cordless trimmer. Over the years I have switched to cordless for my hand power tools such as drills, saws, hedge trimmers, etc. After a Google search I found the CORE trimmer which I was not aware of before, but what a find! Plenty of power comparable to the ECHO gas trimmer and uses the .095 line which is my favorite. All other cordless trimmers I looked at use the wimpy .065 line, except the STIHL and it costs $440 for the trimmer, battery, and charger of which you have to buy each separately. The CORE trimmer is the perfect equal alternative to gas trimmers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great little powerhouse Bought this to replace a forty year old GreenMachine brushcutter. After reading several reviews and watching some videos , I gave the CORE CGT 400 considerable attention. By using the .095 trimmer line I hoped it could cut taller brush; wheras most of the other battery powered trimmmers used a smaller line. I have never been a fan of bump heads, but the company said that other heads can be used on this unit. Have not had unit long enough to give an endurance rating. Used for about 30-40 minutes edging trees and cutting tall brush and briars. Seemed to be as powerful as my grass trimmer. It is very quiet and well balanced. You need to be careful when stopping as the motor continues to freely spin. I believe this trimmer would last a homeowner many years of service compared to the gas version. I just hope it is durable enough for farm use as I am doing.
