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 hedgetrimmer, with a push walk-behind lawnmower 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."
