Two-Stroke Engines Getting Challenged by CORE GasLess Power

In the spring of 2012, the Montana-based company debuted its GasLess CGT400 line trimmer, the first product from its powerful line of GasLess outdoor power equipment that runs on chargeable power cells.

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.

In the spring of 2012, the Montana-based company debuted its GasLess CGT400 line trimmer, the first product from its powerful line of GasLess outdoor power equipment that run on chargeable power cells. The motor device is capable of producing high torque rotary motion at high efficiencies and power densities — and doing it quietly.

The CGT400 Trimmer will run for 70 minutes and requires three hours for a standard charge. A fast charge device can be used that takes one hour. The eight-pound (add three more with the power cell) trimmer is well-balanced and features an instant trigger start.

The company is not just selling outdoor trimmers, though — it is targeting a substantial part of the tool arsenal in the landscaping industry, adding gas-free and emission-free lawnmowers, hedge trimmers, and two different blowers.

Lincoln Jore and Matt Jore came up with the idea of eliminating the wire windings and iron laminations used in conventional motors 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 in a new type of ironless and wireless motor.

Core Outdoor will soon release other outdoor tools, including a 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 at a price comparable with high-quality commercial gasoline trimmers on the market today.

Here are some key features on the trimmer:

•      Weight (without Power Cell): 8 pounds

•      Weight (with Power Cell): 11 pounds

•      Run Time: up to 70 minutes

•      Charger: 3 hour (rapid charger available)

•      Head Speed: 7,000 RPM in Speed Mode

•      5,000 RPM in Torque mode

•      Power Cell: Prismatic high energy

This YouTube video above provides a pretty convincing demonstration of the trimmer’s ability to handle sizeable landscaping jobs — quietly and emissions-free. Kudos!
