The End of Gas String Trimmers? CORE Outdoor Power CGT400 Gasless Trimmer

OPE, Inc. (DBA. 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™” 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. CORE Outdoor Power has obtained exclusive, worldwide rights to the CORE™ technology for use in outdoor power equipment applications through a license agreement with Core Motion, Inc.

New CORE Motor Technology

After six years of development by the Jores and Core Motion, Inc., the new motor is now being referred to as CORE™ (Conductor Optimized Rotary Energy).  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.  The process for manufacturing a CORE™ stator is the same well-known process used in the construction of printed circuit boards.

Starting in the first quarter of 2012 CORE Outdoor Power will launch the first of a line of products, starting with the CORE™-powered Gasless™ trimmer. The trimmer will be available through key retailers and dealers. (as of this writing you can order the trimmer through their website. )

It looks like a conventional trimmer, but the motor is at the bottom!

The CGT400 Trimmer is reliable, lightweight and will run just as long as a tank of gas on your 2 cycle trimmer. Since the motor is in the head and the battery is up top it is perfectly balanced.  Other features include an instant trigger start, high-energy power cell, dual-mode controls for torque and speed, open view grass guard and a comfort grip handle. This lightweight, long life, virtually maintenance free CGT400 Trimmer will retail around $270 making it very comparable with high quality commercial gasoline trimmers on the market today.
