The GasLess™ CB420 Handheld Blower launched in October 2012, utilizes CORE’s innovative motor technology and features an instant starttrigger, dual power control and an adjustable nozzle. Weighing only 11 lbs., it produces wind speeds of up to 110 MPH with an air flow of 400 CFM.
Even though fuel prices continue to rise, and the ethanol content of that fuel is on the same path, the electric engine has had an uphill battle to find its place on the dealer showroom floor. It started on the first try, sure, but just what could a battery-powered chainsaw actually cut through? How long cold that electric trimmer keep whirling? Could the battery-powered blower keep pace with its gas-powered cousin?
The wire windings and iron laminations used in conventional motors has been eliminated in Core Outdoor Power products by embedding copper-etched conductors into a multi-layered printed circuit board to form a stator that works in conjunction with permanent magnets to produce torque. As a completely gas-free system, Core technology provides the unique ability to exceed noise, efficiency and emission standards without increasing costs and without sacrificing performance. The CGT400 Trimmer is reliable, lightweight and will run just as long as a tank of gas.
CORE GasLess Handheld Blower and Hedge Trimmers
Core Outdoor Power expands its suite of products to address additional market needs in the outdoor power equipment industry: Comes equipped with Core GasLess motor technology, 12-lbs. CHT410 hedge trimmer has run-times of up to 90 minutes and CB420 handheld blower weighs 11 lbs., runs up to 400 cubic feet per minute and produces winds up to 110 miles per hour.
The issues of emissions, unit weight and noise – especially on sensitive properties such as hospitals, nursing homes and school grounds – are causing a larger number of contractors to investigate electric-powered equipment.
Core Outdoor Power attracted considerable attention at the GIE+EXPO with its line of GasLess CGT400 Trimmers, hedge trimmers, hand-held and backpack blowers.
