CORE Outdoor Power introduces its new Power-Lok, a drive unit with interchangeable landscaping attachments. The Power-Lok system provides landscapers with innovative and adaptive products that are professional quality with the convenience of interchangeable attachments that can trim grass, cut hedges and blow leaves and debris.
The Drive Unit provides the power, as well as the intelligence to efficiently control each motorized attachment. Upon connection, Power-Lok’s exclusive Intelligent Electronic Control instantaneously recognizes the attachment and communicates operational instructions to the powerful CORE motor, ensuring optimum performance and functionality.
The company recently learned about a development by handheld equipment manufacturer CORE Outdoor Power that could mean eliminating the inverter, which costs about $6,000. With the new system, power would travel from the solar panels to a voltage regulator—costing only a few hundred dollars—to the charger.
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.

Fall clean up can be a very profitable service for lawn care operators and landscapers. All you need is the right equipment. This month’s Product Focus offers blowers, vacs, sweepers and more to get you started on the right track.
Leaves and debris are no match for this equipment, so take a look to find the equipment you need to get through the next few months. Whether you’re looking for a hand-held blower for small jobs, or a vacuum attachment for your truck or tractor, you will find it here!
Instead of a lithium-ion battery, this eight-pound string trimmer uses a high-energy power cell, which churns out two stroke levels of speed (7,000 rpm) and torque, and lasts more than an hour per charge. It’s simple to start and easy to wind, and it edges tall grass and dense weeds with precision and power.
An article we posted earlier this month about the outdoor power equipment industry’s concerns over E15 generated a comment from CORE Outdoor Power (www.coreoutdoorpower.com), Polson, Mont. Founded nine years ago, CORE has developed technology that replaces gasoline (or E15) engine-powered tools, such as trimmers and blowers.
Having the right tools makes all of the difference when it comes to lawn and garden chores. Fortunately, veteran gardeners and lawn tool ex-perts are happy to share their experiences. There’s not a perfect fit for every gardener so it’s important to figure out what your needs are. Electric tools have a reputation for not having much “oomph,” but many homeowners, and even commercial landscapers, prefer a non-gasoline option since they are typically quieter and don’t give off foul smelling fumes.
This summer, Core Outdoor Power will introduce a handheld blower and a backpack blower to its suite of GasLess products. Both products will come equipped with patented CORE technology, which utilizes a printed circuit board stator and a power cell to create many advantages over gas-powered products. The handheld blower weighs in at just 11 pounds and reaches 110-mph air speed, while the backpack blower (pictured) weighs just 13 pounds with run times equivalent to a tank of gas. Both products feature a completely gas-free system, which provides the unique ability to exceed noise, efficiency and emission standards without increasing costs and without sacrificing performance.
The two-stroke gasoline engine — a huge emitter and contributor to global warming and pollution — may be staring at its deathbed far sooner than the gasoline engine for the automobile. That is if CORE Outdoor Power has any influence on the matter. And well it should with the exciting line of gasless motor options it is launching in the next few months.
Power Equipment Trade’s April issue looks at dealer challenges in selling green equipment along with the latest green products.

Another article highlights how service is ever more important in a time of falling whole good profit margins. Oregon’s tractor dealer Steve Roy is featured for expanding into lawn and garden equipment, thus leading him into new markets and more business growth with a low debt load. A Green Product Roundup spotlights environmentally safe equipment.
A maintenance project isn’t complete on any property you service until you’ve attended to every detail. You’ll need trimmers, edgers and backpack blowers to give every property that finishing, professional touch. Trimming is commonly done with a string trimmer, and refers to a vertical trim of the edges using a small, spinning head with plastic twine acting as a cutting head. It’s generally done along sidewalks and driveways, but is also used to trim turf around obstacles where most mowers can’t reach.
You know the drill. The familiar buzzing sound of a weed wacker combined with either the smell of gasoline or that super long power cable that’s covered in grass shavings. Not any more. A father and son team, Matt Jore and Lincoln Jore, Core Outdoor Power, created new gas-free motor technology, called Conductor Optimized Rotary (CORE™) combined with a hybrid power cell to go in their new line of gas-free emission-free outdoor power equipment – a hedge trimmer, lawn mower, blower and back pack blower. They call it intelligent technology to replace gas.
Coming in the spring of 2012, the Core CGT400 trimmer is the first outdoor power product from Core to utilize their gas-less, high-torque rotary engine with a printed circuit board and magnetic rotors.
Core Outdoor Power, a manufacturer of GasLess outdoor power products and equipment, introduced an innovative line of emission-free, handheld power equipment for the discerning homeowner and commercial markets at GIE+EXPO 2011. Specifically, the Ronan, Mont.-based company showcased its environmentally friendly grass trimmers, blowers, hedge trimmers, lawn mowers and backpack blowers.
