        Light weight hedger packing some cutting POWER!
        Awesome detail hedger, light weight very well balanced. I’ve been using it since I purchased it. Very pleased with using it 4-5 hours. Worth the price if you have hedges. Very clean cuts on whatever can enter the gap. Never had any issues(used it for 2weeks) so far. I would recommend getting one if you feel a full size hedger is too much for your task. Now, the only two designs issues that could be changed, not a big deal…1) The blade gap size is smaller than 1/2”, so it hard to get the 1/2” branches to squeeze into the blades, if they can redesign the blades by filing down/ tapering the mushroomed edge to allow larger branches to pass easier. Although you can manipulate the 1/2” branches in place for it to easily cut through. 2) the safety trigger lock, I understand it’s a safety thing, so it doesn’t seem to bad to rest your thumb in it. The problems arises when you have to cut in an awkward angle. I wish it was more of a switch like the “Hackall”. And a disclaimer”how to work around safety”, I been using a silicone hair tie around the grip to hold open the safety(not recommend), but it allows for awkward angled use of the hedger without having to struggle holding the safety in place. Please work safe and know where your hands are at all times. Another thing I wish they offered for this item, is a belt holster. I was able to make one by using a electrician’s tool belt holder by cutting out an opening at the bottom to hold the hedger’s shroud in place so that I can holster the hedger while walking in between sites. All in all, this is an excellent compact hedger, Thank you.

        Buyer Beware
        This is a solid built hedge trimmer with what you would expect from Milwaukee quality. The problem is the misleading information in the description of the product. I bought this expecting to cut up to 1/2” diameter branches. Not even close! This will only cut up to 5/16” diameter branches. Read carefully and it says “The power to cut 1/2” branches.” Well Milwaukee that’s great that you are selling a hedge trimmer that has the power to cut 1/2” branches but can only fit 5/16” branches.

          Hedge Trimming Made Easy.
          Great for smaller jobs. I would of rather had this tool in 18V though for a bit more power.

          Works as advertised
          Simple and to the point. Works perfect on small bushes that are too small for a normal size hedge trimmer.

          Great for close up trimming
          This Milwaukee 8 inch hedge trimmer is perfect for close up work, tight areas and detail work. The kit includes the trimmer, blade cover, 4Ah battery and a charger. I found the product to be unexpectedly heavy (about 3.6 pounds with the battery). While it cut through everything I tested with ease, it was sometimes difficult to get branches into the cutters when I was moving in a sweeping motion. The trigger and safety were easy to use. I think a trigger lock would be a useful addition. This is not a substitute for a large hedge trimmer. You do not want to use this product on large hedges as it will take too long to do the work and will not have the reach. However, after you do your main pass with larger trimmers, this product is perfect to improve the final result. It is also great for touch ups.

          Light enough for a single hand, easy to hold with 2 hands
          The Milwaukee M12 8in. Brushless Cordless Hedge Trimmer kit is a handy little product for cutting back the shoots on bushes between large trimmings. The overall length of the cutting area is a bit smaller so it would be a pain to use this to cut back bushes. It worked well when I only needed to trim between large cuttings. It is easily held by a single hand, but also has enough space for two hands to help maneuver it across the surface. It had enough power to do the job. I used it 2-3 times without having to recharge the battery. It cut through my ligustrum bushes, hollies, and boxwoods with ease. I loved that it is cordless. I always seem to cut the power cord when using the hedge trimmer. Problem solved!

          HEAVY; POWERFUL: COMFORTABLE GRIP; CUTS ½" BRANCHES: EASY TO MANEUVER IN TIGHT PLACES
          My first impression of the Milwaukee M12 FUEL 8 in. 12V Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Hedge Trimmer Kit with 4.0 Ah Battery and Charger was that it was heavy. It is heavier than my full size battery powered hedge trimmer. Maybe the heavy weight is needed to provide it the significant power that it has. It does indeed cut branches up to ½.” I would need to hold the hedge trimmer close to such a branch and then it would cut through. For thinner branches, I could just easily move through them. The M12 battery had no difficulty powering the trimmer. I liked that the trimmer shows the fuel charge when you first start it. I trimmed two rows of blueberry bushes after which the hedge trimmer still showed a full charge. The ergonomics of the lockout and trigger are well-designed which makes the trimmer easy to use with one hand. The handle has a firm, non-slip, comfortable grip. Since I was often trimming near the ground, the blade tip guard proved to be useful in protecting the blade. Although this hedge trimmer is somewhat of a niche product, it is useful for anyone who does considerable pruning. I found that it was easier to maneuver into tight places with this trimmer than with my full-size hedge trimmer. I have many M12 tools but few batteries so getting another battery was also a plus. It has a 3-year warranty and is made in China.

          Nice for Small Trimming Jobs
          The Milwaukee M12 FUEL 8 in. 12V Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Hedge Trimmer Kit with 4.0 Ah Battery and Charger is just the right size for trimming bushes and branches on our 1/2 acre garden. We have other battery operated lawn tools and this trimmer will be a great addition. This trimmer is only 8 inches long, which makes it easy to use with just one hand, although the weight of it can become tiring to hold with one hand. It is great for small trimmings, but if you have large hedges or something similar to trim, you may want to use a larger trimmer. We have always been very happy with Milwaukee tools and we think this tool will be great too.

          Does what bigger hedge trimmers can't...
          Milwaukee M12 FUEL 8 - inch 12V Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Hedge Trimmer Kit with 4.0 Ah Battery and Charger is something A smaller trimmer fits the sweet spot in my garden. I have large trimmers and they are too big for detail work on my small bushes in getting around into tight spots and past obstructions. Until now had to go back to my trusty hand clippers to finish, and after getting cordless trimmers, preferred something like Milwaukee's. The 8 - inch tool is perfect for those situations where a small is needed to get into tight spots up against the fence. This one is part of Milwaukee's kit configuration that means it comes with a battery charger and an M12 4 Ah battery. The 4 Ah is twice the capacity of earlier ones. This kit also includes a blade sheath protector for storing the trimmer blade away safely. The tool is a pleasure to use, lightweight a big plus and compact, an extension of your hand. It has a safety lock-off button on the side used before starting and a fuel gauge on top to keep tabs on power usage. I had no problem running the 4 Ah battery, lasted just fine around the garden, albeit it is a small one. You aren't cutting a lot of big branches with this tool, capacity is ½ - inch diameter twigs. I see using it to make a final pass after using larger trimmers, or for a quick spot trim in the garden. It is just that I'm always cleaning up after around my bushes after the large trimmer. It weighs only under four pounds, has plenty of power in your hand reaching in around tight spots. The trimmer is balanced, more weighed slightly towards the back with the big battery. It is a good complement for a large hedge trimmer in gardens to finish the job with final touches. I expect will be used by many this way, makes things easier and quicker, and for small bushes the preferred tool for its flexibility.
