CLEVELAND — Now available at Lowe’s, Troy-Bilt powered by CORE offers homeowners a new approach to cordless outdoor power equipment that rivals the power of gas. New products include a string trimmer, leaf blower and hedge trimmer, with a push walk-behind lawn mower coming soon.
Unlike other cordless power equipment on the market today, the patented CORE motor design works together with a responsive, load-sensing controller to deliver more torque, which is the muscle that cuts through the most difficult yard challenges. By applying cutting-edge intelligence to basic power principles, CORE was designed to draw power more efficiently and deliver concentrated power when and where it’s needed.
“Real power comes from the motor — the heart of the tool — not the battery or the voltage as many may think,” said CORE co-inventor Lincoln Jore. “The battery simply supplies the energy, but the motor converts that energy into torque, which is what’s needed to power through yardwork without slowing down.”
With more power, users experience a longer runtime and can trim, blow and cut quickly. The unique motor is smaller and lighter than copper-wound motors for easy maneuvering. Its high efficiency leads to less heat and less wear and tear for long-term viability. CORE also offers the industry’s only motor backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
“Troy-Bilt has been manufacturing gas-powered outdoor power equipment for more than 75 years, so we know the types of challenges homeowners face in their yards,” said Troy-Bilt brand manager Megan Peth. “With this revolutionary cordless system, we’re excited to offer the power and performance consumers expect from Troy-Bilt, but now without the gas.”
The proprietary CORE controller communicates with the motor to monitor how hard it’s working and automatically responds when more or less power is required. By efficiently managing the flow of energy to and from the motor, the product can achieve maximum runtime. Additionally, the string trimmer and leaf blower are equipped with a color-coded power display panel that tells users how much power is being used, giving more focus on the job and less on the equipment.
All Troy-Bilt powered by CORE units can operate on the same battery, allowing consumers to save money by purchasing just the bare tools if they already own one battery.
The Troy-Bilt powered by CORE string trimmer, hedge trimmer and leaf blower will each retail for $279. The push walk-behind lawn mower will retail for $499. All CORE tools are backed by a 5-year limited warranty. All CORE batteries and chargers are supported by a 3-year limited warranty.
