Woot deal in Tools & Garden has a pretty sweet deal going for a few more hours on the CORE gasless line of outdoor power equipment.

http://tools.woot.com/offers/core-power-lok-kit-and-accessories [woot.com]

You can purchase the entire line or up to 3 individual pieces. For example, I bought the power head (which comes with the battery and charger) and the string trimmer attachment head.

The charger that comes with the head is a 3 hour charger. You can purchase a "One Hour Rapid" charger for around $90.

This deal amounts to about a 50% discount over current Amazon retail for these tools.

The CORE motor that powers the tools are licensed by several other brands including Troy-Bilt and Cub Cadet.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Battery (they call it a Fuel Cell) specs are not clear on the Woot listing. Amazon listing for the battery lists it as 18.5V UL, 6.5AH ,120WH

Rated for appx 70 minutes with normal usage. Less runtime with heavy usage or thick brush cutting (Currently there is no brush cutter attachment available)

The device does not take standard attachments that fit gas operated power heads. Each attachment has its own CORE motor. The power head does not contain a motor.

14" cutting swatch and takes .095 inch line. Dual line Bump feed head is removable. May be able to hack on a metal brushcutter blade (YMMV, the manual warns against doing so)

$250 is the price. OP price in title always helps

Thanks for the heads up.

The price you will pay is dependent on what you get. It could be as little as $59 or as much as $250

My purchase was $150. I got the CORE head unit which was $89 and the string trimmer attachment which was $59

If someone happens to already have the CORE head unit, they could just purchase one or more of the attachments that work with it.

I purchased this deal (full kit with accessories), received shipping notice so I sold my gas trimmer and blower on craigslist. Got the package on Friday and it was just the trimmer attachment and nothing else. Contacted Woot and they said tough luck, we are out of stock on everything else.

Quote :
We’re issuing you a refund in the amount of $25 in the event you’d like to keep the item and can buy the missing items locally. The refund will be issued to the account used to make this purchase within 3 to 5 business days.
Awesome, $225 for the trimmer attachment that sells on Amazon for $128.

Thanks woot, last time I deal with you clowns.

Wow. Sorry to hear that! I never saw the deal sell out, it just timed out. I was with it until midnight because I was trying to get in a last minute purchase. Nothing was sold out right up until the midnight ending. Sounds like you definitely got hosed.

The trimmer attachment, as part of the Woot deal, should have been $59 by itself, so you should be getting $166 refund, right?

The power head with charger and battery is around $189 on Amazon. Not sure about the blower.

I can tell you that if you do decide to go with CORE, the trimmer has some incredible torque. I just put up a first impressions video on youtube where I attached a grass gator blade head to it, effortlessly cutting down 1-2 inch weed stalks and privet brush without the motor getting hot at all.

Apparently this has happened with a few people. There's a thread on it at http://tools.woot.com/forums/view...ost6858792
