Picture shows old head (AMAZING), what you receive is new head (JUNK)
I have the old head and weedeater, have used it for 2 years and has been amazing. Saw these on sale and purchased 2 more because I noticed they had the old head (as pictured). Received them and they have the new head on them. Read the other reviews, the new heads are junk!!! The weedeater itself is awesome other than the new head.

Overheating
I can only get maybe 10 minutes out of this trimmer before it starts to stop on me. Very unhappy with this product. I have a blower that runs on the same battery and it performs perfectly!

Overheats and shuts down in 10 min
Just like many other users. Overheating under moderate use is unacceptable. You need a larger or more efficient fan/heatsink. I will probably have to do that myself unless a recall is issued.

Works great for non fuel trimmer when it works
I've had this trimmer for a few months now and was originally impressed with its power considering it's running off a battery. It by no means will cut brush as advertised but for non commercial yard work I think it's perfect. The issue is the unit is either over heating or the trigger is shorting out as others have stated. Granted it's hot outside but 15 min into weed eating it cuts out. I have several 9.0 batteries so can change out immediately but does not remedy the problem. I'm not using it in thick heavy weeds just standard yard trimming. Very frustrated as I only own Milwaukee power tools and now hand tools too. This is the only product from Milwaukee I've ever had issue with and for the considerably high cost (for battery operated trimmers) I was expecting a superior product. Wasnt expecting it to out do my 600$ shindaiwa but it should easily trim my yard weeds. Maybe I bought a lemon but buyer beware.

Maybe Overkill
When I needed a new battery powered string trimmer, I purchased this Milwaukee unit - primarily to keep the number of different batteries/chargers in my home to a minimum. I always use it on the low speed setting, which is plenty adequate to trim grass. Seems well made, but it probably overkill for my uses. I'll probably make two mods to it (1) affix a shoulder strap to it as it is a bit heavy and (2) mount a wire guard out front of the string head to remind me how close I can get to things I DON'T want to annihilate. My lot is about 11,000 SF, with an above ground pool and 3 raised be gardens to trim around. Charged it once, and have done the lawn twice so far without a recharge, probably 30 to 35 minutes of run time. I think it will make the 1 hour run time claim. If it doesn't I'll update this review.

Does this come with the trimmer head and string?
Travis on May 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Comes comple and ready to use
Although the string lasts longer than most trimmers. Recommend extra string.
Works so well I’ll never use another gas powered trimmer
Do you tap the ground to reload more string? I've read about other ones that reload every time you hit the button to start it. I see nothing in the description about how this one operates in string reloading.
jo3246 on Jun 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: this trimmer has a bump head. It is very easy to restring it as well.
Will the 2725-20 work with 5.0ah batteries??
A shopper on May 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. I’ve used 4.0, 5.0 and 9.0 batteries in my trimmer and blower. Of course run time varies, less run time with the smaller battery.
Is it the special fast charger that comes with this kit?
Craig N on Sep 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes. High Capacity Battery and Rapid Charger. Great unit. 10/10.....
Is this trimmer capable of running brush cutting head?
A shopper on May 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Check with Milwaukee but I don’t think it will.

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.
