core electric trimmer

I am planning on replacing 2 trimmers and a handheld blower this spring. I am intrigued with the Core brand electric products. Does anyone have any experience with them?

Good question sven1277. I was wondering the same thing.
If no one has experience with them, then does anyone have any opinions on these high volt, longer running, trimmers?

Aren't you selling these? You haven't gotten any feedback from your customers that have purchased them?

We actually just picked these up after this was posted. We sold out of them after 2 weeks and I think we have a customer give some feedback.
Haven't heard anything but good about these so far.

I don't know.... I'm about to order a string trimmer and see how it works. We have a senior center that we maintain with a huge interior courtyard and they don't want us to use gas powered equipment in there anymore. We've been using the Stihl battery powered blower and hedge trimmer and they work great. We'll see how the CORE trimmer works for us....

Core trimmer has been discussed a few times here, but nothing in great detail. No posts by those who have used them that I'm aware of.

Here's one thread I posted in after handling one at an open house.
http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.p...highlight=core

I'm still toying with the idea of getting one.

I ordered the string trimmer this morning. We'll see how it works. I'll post my thoughts once we receive it and I try it out.

Awesome. I really am interested. If not for the fact that it wasn't lighter than my Stihl, I would have seriously considered getting one.

A lot of guys scoff at the FS90R as being underpowered, but it has 100x more ooomph than is necessary for trimming 2" of scraggly grass along the perimeter of a lawn, so I can't see how the cordless trimmer wouldn't work for that sort of stuff - 90% of what I use a trimmer for.

Depending on how long the batteries actually last, it would be nice to have one less item to fuel up every day.
