Lightweight, powerful and eco-friendly, CORE’s Power Lok 40-volt cordless lawn equipment offers a split boom for various attachments including a string trimmer, hedge trimmer and blower. Unlike other split-boom products, the Power Lok utilizes CORE’s proprietary motor that eliminates the need for gas by combining a multi-layered circuit board with a state-of-the-art power cell. The result is a rechargeable, battery-powered tool that, according to the manufacturer, delivers 25 percent more torque than a 25cc, 2-cycle gas trimmer. The intelligent electronic controls of the dedicated unit recognize which attachment is connected and runs the corresponding program to power it.
The EHT staff tested the weed-hungry Power Lok trimmer, which is sturdily built with a strong metal shaft, quiet to operate, easy to maneuver (weighing only 12 lbs.) and backed by a 5-year residential warranty. It really does deliver some impressive cutting power that easily rivals a quality gas trimmer without the hassle and mess of mixing fuel. Check out the product line at www.coreoutdoorpower.com. — M.
