CORE Outdoor Power, the sole manufacturer of GasLess outdoor power equipment for commercial users and the discerning homeowner, announced today plans to expand its line to include new, higher performance equipment called CORE Elite. Being debuted for the first time at this year’s GIE+Expo, prototypes of CORE’s most powerful line yet will be on display and ready for testing at both its indoor and outdoor booth.
The CORE Elite line exhibited at the show will feature a string trimmer and handheld blower with more products being introduced down the road. With power and run-times that can compete with any other commercial equipment on the market today, this line offers improved performance for tackling even the toughest jobs. Alongside these products, CORE will introduce a backpack, which offers users four times the run-time.
Weighing only 11 pounds, the trimmer features run-times of up to 90 minutes and the same powerful, noise-free operation as CORE’s original line. The new 9-pound blower clears up to 500 cubic feet per minute, producing winds of up to 120 miles per hour and will run longer than a tank of gas. Additionally, the products feature soft grip for increased durability and comfort.
CORE Elite utilizes the same state-of-the-art motor technology as all CORE products that eliminates the need for gas. The cutting-edge technology works by embedding copper-etched conductors into a multi-layered circuit board stator, which when coupled with permanent magnets allows the products to produce high torque at extremely high efficiencies.
“There’s no doubt many commercial landscapers are still hesitant to trade in their gas-powered equipment and make the switch to gasless products,” said Lincoln Jore, CORE president. “We are excited to show off the increased power and run-times in this new line and continuing to offer a truly commercial-grade, gasless alternative for landscape professionals.”
Following the successful launch of its first GasLess product in the spring of 2012, CORE has since introduced a handheld blower, hedge trimmer and split boom, Power Lok landscaping system. Power Lok features interchangeable attachments that can trim grass, cut hedges and blow leaves and debris all in one system. This addition to CORE’s suite offers practical benefits for users looking for flexibility and efficiency for a fraction of the cost of purchasing separate units.
CORE products can be purchased online and are currently available in over 1,600 retail locations across North America.
