Milwaukee has outdone themselves with this M18 cordless string trimmer with QUIK-LOK attachment capability! The whole unit itself, with battery, is very light weight! Everything you need is in this package (trimmer, handle, battery, and charger). The gap between the spool head, and the line cutter, is spacious and that comes in handy when having to cut down long, thick weeds. The handle has lots of grip and accommodates both left and right-handed people. The safety trigger is conveniently atop the trigger so that when you go to use the trimmer, just move your hand over the safety switch and apply the throttle with your fingers. I like this setup much better than other trimmers, where you have to turn a switch to on, hold in a safety button, and THEN apply the throttle. With this trimmer, just insert the battery, grab the handle and apply throttle. No longer do I have to worry about mixing the special oil with high octane gas, or worrying about the fuel lines cracking under age, or carbs that need to be taken apart and cleaned. The sheer convenience of this Milwaukee M18 Battery trimmer is outstanding! The noise level is much quieter than gas-powered models and the battery even has a light indicator on it to show you how much juice is left. Milwaukee thought of everything when they made this unit. Try it out yourself and you’ll see what I’m talking about. Other QUIK-LOK attachments include hedge trimmer, pole saw, 8-inch edger, and even a 3-foot extension attachment. I made a video, but not sure how to upload it, since I don't see a video upload option.Date published: 2019-03-12Rated 5 out of 5 by JT from My wife bought me this string trimmer for my... My wife bought me this string trimmer for my birthday (per my recommendation…lol) and this thing is a champ.Just ordered the edger. I am so glad I waited for this iteration of M18 Equipment! The Quick-Lok system in general is a great tool to have in my arsenal of equipment…and better yet, NO GAS.Date published: 2019-03-12Rated 5 out of 5 by GPF from I love Milwaukee tools and this new Quik-Lok base tool with stringer attachment is great. The too... I love Milwaukee tools and this new Quik-Lok base tool with stringer attachment is great. The tool feels very balanced and comfortable in my hands with a comfortable trigger device on the palm side of your hand which makes for easy operation. I typically use gas trimmers but this machine is so powerful that I am retiring that loud smells tool. This machine is quiet and with the M18 Fuel battery should last for a very long time. Though still cold outside I tested on some winter grasses and it cuts easily with plenty of torque. I also like its adjustable cutting width which extends easily from 14-16 inches. Nice large self feeding spool gives easy line advance. The Quik-Lok system is a snap. Simply loosen a lever and push release button then remove current tool, and slide and lock new attachment into socket and away you go. Very quick and tools feels very solid and tight in the base unit. It is nice that this can be many tools for my yard. Can't wait to add more attachments.

Product was packed great, all the pieces and tools to put it together were there and the instructions were spot on. After charging the battery I put everything together and started the engine in 30 minutes. I can't wait to purchase some of the other attachments, like edger and power saw. I like that I only need one engine base and that I can pop on and off attachments as needed instead of buying new products (timers, hedgers, saws) that each have batteries, take of storage space and have learning curves. I'd recommend getting the shoulder strap, reached out to Home Depot for that. I've had the trimmer for about a week, and will provide an update when spring gets here.

To me, it ranks right up there with cleaning the toilet; don't want to do it but it has to be done. When the Milwaukee M18 FUEL 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless String Trimmer with QUIK-LOK Attachment Capability and 9.0 Ah Battery arrived, I couldn't wait to get outside. Assembly was relatively painless. I spent about five minutes attaching the handle and trimmer guard/cutter. I really like the trimmer guard. It is one of the slimmest, least obtrusive I've ever noticed. Makes it very easy to see the area you're cutting. I was afraid winter wasn't going to provide much of a test but our warm, cold, warm trend over the last six or so weeks provided plenty of green things that needed to be taken down. I was able to tackle every challenge without the slightest problem. The included string cut without hesitation and the battery showed no signs of giving out. Not having to drag a power cord behind me I was able to finish the front and back in record time. Now, my one and only gripe. When it came time to swap the attachment I had difficulty removing the trimmer. I inserted the pole saw without any problems but when it came time to remove it I again had difficulty getting it to slide free. I don't know if it will get easier over time but I am tempted to apply some graphite or lubricant to help. This is something I can see being a problem for a person that lacks arm strength. Overall, I like this tool and the space-saving benefit of the quick-lok attachments. Recommended.

I selected the Milwaukee cordless, brushless string trimmer to reduce my dependency on gasoline/oil mixed yard tools. I'm exhausted with the maintenance combustion engines needs with the latest gasoline formulas. I confess, I've been converting to battery powered starting with the cheaper stuff only to be disappointed. Most equipment doesn't have the power to trim thick grass or edge a sidewalk. This Milwaukee tool has everything I could want in the performance of a string trimmer! it has quality construction and gas trimmer like throttle so it feels natural to operate. It has good balance with the battery installed. I like the Quik-Lok system too for adding accessories. As for trimming, the Milwaukee goes at the tough tall thick stuff without any struggle. I am actually amazed at how easy it does cut. I don't know if it is the high torque of the brushless motor or the trimmer head or the trimmer string but it is a pleasure to trim my yard and not have to deal with priming, choking, sputtering of my gas combustion trimmer. The included 18 volt 9 AH battery lasted more than enough to do my front yard and back yard, well over 1500 feet of fence line and another 500 or so feet of flower bed trimming and trimming around the trees. The string trimmer head is Milwaukee's own and at first I was like; what the heck, but once you "read how it works" then it's like - DUH! The ease of reloading string is beautiful. A nice trimmer guard with adjustable cutter for 14" or 16", just flip the blade out to get the extra 2". Includes the multi-charger (12 and 18 volt capability), 9 AH battery power head with brushless motor and trimmer Quik-Lok attachment. Pros: -Quik-lok for tool expandability, and it's very easy to operate -Power head at the top instead of above the trimmer head like other brands. The smooth drive shaft, no vibration what-so-ever thanks to the supported shaft halves at the Quik-Lok -Easy trigger operation - makes the trimmer operation feel natural. Very responsive trigger control and it is variable speed. -Turtle/rabbit speed modes of the brushless motor to help save battery. The Milwaukee was powerful enough at turtle for my yard trimming. -Low ground clearance trimmer line, makes getting under fence edges easy without having the need to tilt the trimmer. -A bump and feed that so far has worked perfectly, everytime. Cons: -I'm not crazy about the butt mount battery on the power head. It's natural to clear the trimmer head by upending the trimmer. This makes the battery the rest point when the trimmer is upside down. Note, that this is typical for most battery string trimmers I've seen. You can pull the battery and there is a sort of block that the power head could safely rest on or you could simply lay flat on the ground but yard folks don't take the time for the extra steps and I'm usually one of them. -Milwaukee states using only Milwaukee brand string in the trimmer. I haven't noticed anything special about the string, however, I'm not fond of proprietary consumables. Wrap-up: I absolutely love this trimmer and have parked my Echo gas trimmer.
