Product Description

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, highenergy power cell, dualmode 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 Gasless emissionfree outdoor power equipment. CORE aircooled motors are extremely light weight and have the ability to produce as much power as twocycle 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 onethird to onefifth 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.

I've been looking for a good cordless electric trimmer for a while. I've had a Black & Decker cordless electric for a few years and have been really dissatisfied. My Makita impact driver showed me just how powerful and amazing a cordless power tool can be and I figured somebody must be able to build a better trimmer by now. I wanted something with long lasting batteries, a rapid charger option, and power closer to a gas trimmer.

I thought I finally found all this in Stihl's HSA 65 and 85 trimmers. I went to my local dealer and it looked like a great product with one big downside. The HSA85 is $299 but you have to buy the battery and the charger separate. I just couldn't justify paying over $500 when all is said and done for a trimmer!

However, while I was at the store the sales guy showed me the CORE gasless trimmer and said it was basically the same thing. In fact, he said everybody who came into the store looking for the Stihl walked out with a CORE. Well, I was a bit skeptical at first but after using it for a few minutes I decided to give it a try and have been very happy with my purchase.

I'm not sure which trimmer is really better. The Stihl certainly looks much more refined, but the fact that the CORE sells for $279 and comes with a battery and charger makes it a much better value than the Stihl and more comparable to a standard gas trimmer in terms of price. Also, for residential use it comes with a 5 year warranty (2 year commercial) vs 2 years with the Stihl. It has two speed settings, which I have found very helpful, holds more line than the stihl (according to the sales guy at my yard equipment store), and the battery really does last.

I have found two downsides.

I rarely write product reviews; however, after learning about this trimmer from a friend, and the fact that my 2 cycle bit the dust, I needed a new trimmer. The thought of having more power than a 2 cycle and not having to use gas/oil sold me. I have only had this trimmer a few days and used it for one trimming thus far, so I cannot speak to longevity or battery life. I can say this thing has power. I was able to use the torque (slowest) setting for most of my trimming and then bumped up to speed mode for heavier weeds/grass. My old trimmer would have gotten wound up but not the CORE. It performed wonderfully. I am a shorter guy (5'6") so this trimmer is a bit on the long side for me and a bit heavier, but all things one can get used to. Plus this trimmer is designed and made in the USA (Montana)!!

As usual for my reviews, I'll try to give some background info and more detailed review, but first up the quick hits. I did not purchase this from Amazon, but do own this trimmer. I am not affiliated with the company in any way, and have several hundred dollars into this trimmer like anyone else.

Pros:
Electric Powered, no need to mix gas
Long life battery, definitely long enough to trim my yard in its entirety
Bump head that works
Quiet, when compared to gas powered.
Two modes for higher torque. Lower power mode still powerful enough to trim the grass.
Comes with a battery and charger
Made in USA. I don't mind paying a little extra to support an American company.
Well balanced
Feels well put together, and not cheap like a black and decker grasshog

Cons:
This trimmer overall does not seem to have as much power as my previous Ryobi did. It had enough to do the job.
It is a bit heavy, weighing in at 11lbs. I asked my wife to try it out, and she didn't mind it, but said that the weight would bother her over time.
Higher speed setting surprised me, I thought it would be faster.
Seems like it should allow more string out through the bump head, it was a smaller cutting path than I'm used to.

I purchased this trimmer from a competitor of Amazon last month after a good bit of research into trimmers available on the market. The past few years I have owned a black and decker "grass hog", a Ryobi straight line trimmer that I picked up from Home Depot, and more recently a straight edge "Weed Eater" from Walmart. The grass hog worked okay, but quickly found that the batteries would only get around 10 minutes on a charge so I got rid of it.

Great trimmer, battery lasted as long as stated, a lot of power, very easy to use. For once a product that does what it claims. Not surprising since it is made in the USA.

I love this trimmer. It's almost as good as my Shindaiwa in terms of power, but it's better for me because I hate pulling a starter string, or retuning the 2 cycle engine. The only drawback is that I'm only five feet tall, and this is somewhat long and a little on the heavy side. I have to use a "professional" harness. Nevertheless, this trimmer allowed me to cut through one acre of heavy weeds over a 2 week period (little bit every day).

Okay, I hate those eleven page reviews that sound like someone with no life at all wrote them. This isn't one of those. But to give you some context here goes:

I'm not a small engine repair guy, a diesel mechanic or anything like that. I'm a guy who wants to mow and weed-eat, pull some weeds, then relax with a cold one and enjoy the weekend sun (living here in south Louisiana, we have plenty of it). A couple years ago I decided not to buy another $100 weed-eater that would last maybe a season or two. So when I bought my Gravely ZTR mower, I kicked in another $300+ for an Echo trimmer.

Well the Echo is a very nice machine when it runs, and for the first two seasons it did. Mostly. But for some time now it's been bogging down. Starts fine, just won't come up to speed and dies when I throttle it. So a couple of trips to the repair guy and I decided enough of this *#-@!

After a bunch of research (and I do mean a bunch), I bought this unit. I've used it twice now and it's pretty good. Good enough that I just donated my Echo. So here are my thoughts on the Core weed-eater:

It's weird that it didn't seem "powerful" as I was chewing through some 18" weeds by the road. What I really mean is that I'm used to the feeling of torque when I rev a gas weed-eater and this doesn't do that. It just spins up very quickly, very quietly, and does the job.

It's not silent by any means, but I wouldn't hesitate to start using it earlier in the AM. I usually wait until about 9 or so to not bother the neighbors.

The bump advance works well, and it's a good thing because the line pre-loaded is pretty crummy and breaks quickly.
