I like the string trimmer. it's nice and convenient. I love not mixing gas. The battery life is probably an hour if a constant use of it. battery life is what it is. Still rather have this thing gas.

No refurbs for me
I bought a refurbished one and it was junk. It broke within 1 hour of use. I hope Milwaukee stands behind it and fixes it right this time.

Performs As Hoped
10+ yr old Shindaiwa gas unit (very solid performance) died & after much research decided to go with Milwaukee, since have several different tools and the batteries. Have not been disappointed, as the unit is powerful and well balanced. Have only used 2x since recent purchase, so will not go over 4 stars. Recommend having spare battery ready as it will use one up fairly quickly.

Best trimmer I’ve used, hands down!
Trimmer is balanced well. The charge last a long time. It seems to have plenty of power. Even my wife can reload the string. Lol, just saying!

Far exceeded my expectations
I will start off by saying that I do own a larger gas powered trimmer but decided on getting the Milwaukee M18 Trimmer for days when im not feeling so great and need to use a lightwe tool. I keep a spare 9.0 on the charger while I am working at all times. It will die out during but it isn't an issue since I can swap batteries in 2 seconds. I use two maybe three 9.0 batteries for roughly 950 feet of trim work bi-weekly depending on growth and cut speed. My father ended up buying one he only has maybe 200ft total to trim, one battery is more than enough for his needs. The first time i changed the line on it , took me a few minutes but now it takes longer to open the package of the new one than it does to pop it in.
My brother has been looking for one now as well. Definitely a great buy it has been through quite a few hours of work and doesnt seem to be slowing down.

Bump feeding may not work as well as expected
Definitely more powerful than my previous battery trimmer. I just got it and am having trouble with the bump feed. I have had to manually pull the string out a couple times. Not sure if it is me or the engineering.

This is a powerful trimmer
The trimmer works great, has plenty of power, and plenty of run time. For me the shaft seems a little longer than it needs to be. Also, it rotates opposite of my previous gas trimmer, so that's a little hard to get used to. It seems like no matter which way i hold it or which way i go with it, it slings debris at me.

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.
Do you ship to UK?
A shopper on Jul 22, 2017

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.
