    If the battery goes bad within a year, you would get another one free through warranty automatically. Also, they wouldn't be in business if their equipment only lasted one year. As long as you take care of your equipment, no reason it shouldn't last longer than expected.

    $150 a year in gas would only be like... about 27 gallons if you figure $3.40 (or more since you should be using 89 octane) a gallon plus about $2.00 a bottle on your FD rated 2 cycle oil.

    Battery power have enough power to edge? Is there an HP rating or torque rating for comparisons' sake?

    Yes, it has more than enough torque to edge with. Core doesn't give HP or Torque ratings but, for a FACT, CORE motors produce 25% more TORQUE than a commercial 25cc two-cycle gas engine. It's head speed is 7,000 RPM on the SPEED setting and 5,000 RPM on TORQUE setting.

    Electrically speaking: can one feather the throttle to vary the RPMs...or is it an 'all or none' situation?

    No offence Birddseedd. It's a new product to you guys. Answers are given by asking questions. These are CORE's descriptions. I have no way of testing specs like that myself. But, apparently they have measured CORE's and other gas 2 strokes and the average would be 25% more Torque than the gas engines. I realize it's hard to take someone's word for it. I wish I could get one of these in your guy's hands.

    Valk, no, it is an on/off style trigger. But if what your trimming doesn't require full throttle, set it to Torque and a person can get alot longer run time.
