CORE Outdoor Power, the sole manufacturer of GasLess outdoor power equipment, launched CORE Elite, its most powerful line yet. The latest addition to CORE’s suite of GasLess equipment currently features a higher-performance string trimmer and handheld blower with more products being introduced in the future, including a lawn mower and hedge trimmer. As CORE continues to evolve its proprietary motor technology to address additional market needs for the environmentally and economically conscious commercial landscaper, upgrades to the technology have packed twice the torque into the same lightweight, emission-free package. CORE Elite boasts more power, increased efficiency and even longer run times. Weighing only 11 pounds with power cell, the new E 400 string trimmer features up to a 16-inch swath, .095-inch-diameter trimmer line and torque equivalent to a 45-cc gas engine. The 10-pound E 420 handheld blower produces wind speeds of up to 130 mph with airflow of up to 500 cfm. Both products feature soft-grip molding, offering increased durability and comfort for tackling even the most labor-intensive jobs with the same quiet operation.
