Beware
Out of the box the string head was non-functional. Acme Tools replaced the head no questions asked. The second head is partially functional. Lengthening the string must be done manually.

Now after about 50 hours the unit is stopping after 10 minutes of operation and will run for a few seconds. I've switched out to a newly charged battery and the start/ stop continues.

I am not certainly not satisfied with this tool..

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.

I like it . . . . but. . . .
I really like the feel and the power of the M18 string trimmer. . . . . I use it on the farm around the house, the barns and fences . . . .and . . . .the thick stuff on the dams of the ponds . . . . generally get 50 minutes use from a single charge . . . except in the thick grasses and weeds on the pond dams where I get approximately 35 to 40 minutes use per charge . . . . only real problem I've encountered is in the bump feed for the string .. . . . I've only used this string trimmer about 5 times . . . .still using the pre-wound string from the factory . . . . .it doesn't feed when I bump . . . . after bumping I can pull the string with my hands and it will advance . . hoping it will self correct . . . but hasn't yet . . . . .if it continues like this I'll contact the factory.. . . .otherwise excellent . . . . with the addition of another battery for longer use this could be a great string trimmer. . . . especially if it holds up as long as my old Robin gas trimmers from long ago. . . .

Commercial Grade!
Sure beats using a gas powered trimmer due to less hassle, ease-of-use, and quiet operation. Just attach the battery and start trimming. 2-speed is also a nice feature, enabling better control of cut.
Cuts very efficiently, as I only advanced the trimmer line once in 45 minutes of trimming.
Might be a bit pricey, but the Milwaukee engineering and quality is worth it. Plus the battery and charger are interchangeable with my other Milwaukee M18 power tools.

Power meets or beats 2 cycle gas trimmers!
I bought this weedeater because I was tired of mixing fuel and or buying cans of fuel for 5-6$ every other time I used my gas powered one and I am not disappointed!The 9ah battery lasts 35-40 minutes wide open so I usually get my .65 acre lawn done with one charge.The new rapid charge charger's are great as I can get a full charge in around 30 minutes.The only problem so far is with the self feeding head as it spits out line sometimes before I need it.It seems to be real sensitive with not much pressure on the head cap needed for this to happen.Also line gets twisted up in the head real easy and doesn't feed out when bumped when this happens.The problem may be in how I load the line however.Overall I am very satisfied in the ease of use of this Milwaukee trimmer and would highly recommend it!

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.
