Best Weed Trimmer Ever!
I have had all kinds and brands of weed eaters. For the best power you have to go for gas until now. I was amazed at how torquey this fuel m18 was. Besides the power you don't get the number hands like the gas ones also it is lighter than my Toro. I need a strap to hold it up the gas ones and this one there is no need. Now one reason I bought Milwaukee was it takes the standard batteries I used my 9.0ah bat on the low setting and found I didn't need to go for the higher speed it gave me 26min of 3foot grass being cut and I was amazed how much I got done in that short amount of time. So I think they have made a perfect balance between power and weight that I can't see anyone topping in the near future.

Good trimmer
This is a good trimmer. It is easy to use. Can do some edging but the length makes it a bit of a challenge.

Not built for trimming grass or weeds that have had the opportunity to grow for long periods
The speed settings (fast & slow) really only equate to battery life savings as neither speed provides enough nuts to tackle grass/weeds that have been allowed to grow more than a week or two. If you mow and trim your yard weekly, this is a great tool as it will trim weekly growth with ease. However, if you think this unit will weed whip like a gas powered unit, you will be mistaken as it struggles to tackle extended growth. True, this is NOT a gas unit but don't think that just because it's a Milwaukee that it has the power and strength equal to the other outstanding products they make...it does not. In summary, GREAT unit for weekly trimming and I love the ease of use to tackle weekly yard care. If you let your grass or weeds get too thick, have an extra battery ready as you'll be a while. Personally, I kept my gas powered unit as back up in the event I need the extra strength and line speed.

This great workhorse
This is a great start to Milwaukee making this great machine. It has a better reputation than what a gas weed wacker has. We have a as weed trimmer and the Milwaukee just knocks it out of the park. Keep going Milwaukee!

Excellent Trimmer, Love It & Have Recommended This
This is a great product! Runs really well especially with the 0.095" trim line. I have used mine a lot and am very pleased, at the DIY level this replaces any gas powered trimmer period, yes it's that solid. Milwaukee has done really well designing this and I expect to get years of faithful service from it.

I agree with Jenn_Eris
I too really wish it had a shoulder strap, also find the guard a bit small and got covered in grass. And got the long brush wrapped around the head. (Never had these issues with my gas trimmer.) I dont have a problem dealing with the torx head screws, would be nice if they were slotted to allow for a flat head screwdriver as an option. I like the nail hole in the back to hang it from and its quiet. Feels like quality. Next time im going to use my 4.0ah battery and see if its easier to carry around.

can these trimmers be used in the rain ?
Shane P on Mar 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Milwaukee does not recommend this model to be used in the rain.
Will other m18 batteries work?
A shopper on May 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, any of the M18 battery line will work. I have a small grass area and I use the 2.0ah batteries and get 15 minutes or so of runtime.
Can a blade be attached to the trimmer head to cut brush?
Andrew L on Mar 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No. This trimmer wasn’t made with that in mind.
do I need to buy a string pack or just rewind more string?
A shopper on Jul 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It's best to buy the string pack. Spoiling the string on yourself can be a pain in the neck. It can be done if you have some patience. However, if you want to save yourself the hassle, just buy it already strung. Hope this helps.
Is the length of the shaft adjustable for shorter folks?
A shopper on May 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No. that is a fixed shaft unit it is not adjustable.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
