A must have.
I love Milwaukee tools, but this one blew me away! All kidding aside I bought this thinking it would be good for garage clean up. But this baby is by far more powerful than my echo backpack gas blower and will be used to clean off our 300' driveway. It features 2 speeds and is lightweight and ergonomic. Get one now!

    Select the Rabbit or Turtle switch on top for desired air flow
    Easy to use, just be sure to press the Turtle or Rabbit button on top for the different speed/volumes that you want. Otherwise, super intuitive and works great. No messy or dangerous gas and oil to deal with.

    Milwaukee M18 String Trimmer Kit. Model 2828-21. The item arrived well packaged and undamaged. Upon opening the Box I found inside the string trimmer with a pre spooled head, (.080 line.) A charger, and a 18 V Red Lithium battery. Initial reaction upon removing all the items from the Box? Well made as always. Good job Milwaukee. With the battery in place the string trimmer is very well balanced. It doesn't feel front or back heavy. The equilibrium point is right about where the trimmer handle is installed. With the battery, this trimmer weighs about 11.5 pounds and 73.6 inches. I would recommend Milwaukee add a shoulder strap to help mitigate the weight for longer trimmer jobs it may get tiresome holding 12 lbs for an hour or so. This is a nice segue to discuss the battery. The included Red Lithium High Output XC6.0 Battery khas a LED light up bar which indicates the level of charge remaining. It has a button that you can push at any time to see where the charge level is. Very cool. This battery is big for amp hours and it lasts a long time period I ran the tremor for an hour on a fully charged battery at full power before it died. Does it have the power to cut through thick grass and the like? Well, yes it does. This string trimmer by Milwaukee powers through everything that I have put in it's path. If you would expect a string trimmer to cut it, this one will do it without even thinking twice. I put it in heavy grass and started it and it didn't even bogged down. I found the vibration from the trimmer to be quite acceptable. Changing the string is one of the easier experiences I've had with a string trimmer. I highly recommend this trimmer. It looks good. Feels good. And is good.

    Milwaukee Household String Trimmer
    This is the first cordless battery powered string trimmer I have owned, as well as my first Milwaukee M18 tool, I own other Milwaukee products. I switched from a 2-cycle gas powered trimmer to a cordless model for the ease of use. I chose the Milwaukee brand because of the reliable performance; this product has plenty of power at your finger tips. The 6.0ah high output battery gives me ample runtime on the low-setting, as I'm able to control the edging around my house and fence without causing any damage. When on the high-setting, the performance of the trimmer with a 16" cutting distance, allows you to cover a huge area quickly. Switching from a 14" to a 16" is fairly easy, by adjusting the string cutter located on the guard. I felt comfortable with the large guard preventing objects/ rocks shooting backwards towards my face. The things I did not like about the tool was the handle placement, I felt as though my arms were stretched out trying to push the head of the trimmer towards the ground. Eventually I adjusted the handle upwards to where it was comfortable for me. Also, being used to a one piece solid trimmer, I don't like the idea of folding the trimmer for "shipping or storage purposes"; while only being held together with screws. I'm not sure if that would bring problems later on affecting the purpose of a long term investment. I do think this kit would have been that much better with an 8.0ah high output battery while staying at the same price. Overall I'm happy with just clicking my battery in, and instantly starting to cut the grass. I plan on using the 6.0 battery as expand my M18 platform.

      Really like this string trimmer. Gets up to speed real quick and tears through vegetation without faltering. In addition to the variable throttle, there's a slow and fast speed switch that limits the top speed, which should help extend battery life. I've used the high speed setting more, but briefly tried the low speed one and found it to be perfectly usable. The cutting diameter is pretty big - up to 16" - so you can cover plenty of ground with it. The tool feels pretty balanced, even with larger battery packs. Battery life has been great for me, though I don't have too much vegetation to maintain these days. The spool housing comes apart rather easily and seems to be sufficiently sealed against debris. There's alignment markers 180 degrees apart which help with reassembly. Haven't had to swap the line out yet and hopefully I won't for a while. I'm not sure what line diameter it comes with, but it takes either 0.080" or 0.095, which is way better than the thinner 0.065" stuff normally found on lighter electric duty trimmers. Don't really have any complaints. Except maybe that the battery has some slight play to it and the sheer length of this thing - it's over 70 inches long, so be mindful of where you plan on storing it. Would be nice if it were easier to fold up for storage!

      Easy for the whole family to use, charged batteries on the other hand. That being said I had this for going on 3 months using 3-4 times a week with no issues great easy blower on turtle (low) with a xc5 battery or rabbit (high) on a hd12 what I am running battery life will very. The turtle is great for sidewalks, driveway, your car, mulch and things like that. Rabbit is great for dessert landscape like mine, it'll work fine on grass as well plus it's got that extra power. Like I had said tho high requires a bigger battery. Over all I am happy with purchase being it was part of the buy one combo get a free tool.

        Milwaukee M18 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless String Trimmer Kit with 6.0 Ah Battery and C...
        Milwaukee M18 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless String Trimmer Kit with 6.0 Ah Battery and Charger - a Home Depot Seeds Program Review I already have a string trimmer – two actually. One is gas powered and I keep a brush cutter blade on it and use it for much heavier duty work while the other is another battery powered trimmer. I decided to get this Milwaukee M18 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless String Trimmer for a couple of reasons. First, I have lots of Milwaukee tools in the M18 family which means I have lots of M18 batteries and that’s important if you’re trying to get the yard work done and the battery dies. I face that often with my other battery powered trimmer. Second I’ve found brushless motors to have more power and longer lasting than those with motor brushes. This may be partly my imagination but it’s how I feel. I got this in mid-winter so I really haven’t tried whacking weeds yet but, frankly, how different could it be than any other trimmer? I will compare this Milwaukee trimmer to my other battery-powered trimmer. - Battery Power – The Milwaukee comes with a High Capacity XC 6.0 battery (and charger). I have another battery just like it and can get hours of use from power tools. Charging it is very fast. My other trimmer battery only gets 30 minutes or so and the charging takes considerably longer. - Size & Weight – The two trimmers are the same length and almost the same weight with the Milwaukee being about a pound and a half heavier. I the battery weight makes up most of that difference. - The String – I can use the same string in both. The Milwaukee documentation says “use only Milwaukee spiral line”. I don’t think that’s going to happen with me since the size is important, not the brand. - Operation – Pretty much the same. Dual operation switches (depress one before the trimmer can be run with the other). The operation switch allows variable speed. Whack weeds. When the string breaks or is too short, tap the head on the ground and more line is let out and cut to length by a cutter blade. I don’t know of a trimmer that works very different than this. Where the Milwaukee stands out though is it has two speeds selectable by a switch. My other trimmer only has a speed very similar to the “slow” setting on the Milwaukee. Though I haven’t tried it yet, the faster speed should allow me to handle higher, thicker weeds that the other trimmer struggles with. The slower speed would be for lighter work and preserves battery. - Loading New Line – BIG, BIG difference! The old trimmer has a cartridge that must be removed, the string wound around then reinserted in the head without letting the string unwind, loosen or otherwise get screwed up before reinsertion. This is a real pain. The Milwaukee trimmer has a different way with their Easy Load Trimmer Head – cut the length of line you need, thread it through the holes on the sides of the head to even lengths and turn the head to wind it up. If it takes 30 seconds I’d be amazed. It’s almost buying this trimmer just for this ability! - Cutting Diameter – The Milwaukee can be adjusted from 14 inches to 16 inches. This isn’t really an “on the fly” adjustment since it involves removing some screws and repositioned the cutting blade, but it’s possible. My other trimmer has only a 14 inch cutting diameter. - Vibration – The Milwaukee has noticeably more vibration when operating. It isn’t so bad that I think it will be a problem but I might be concerned if I had to use it for 6 or 8 hours. The vibration is less with the slower speed. Overall I’m very happy with the Milwaukee String Trimmer. It fits in my existing Milwaukee tool line very well and uses the same batteries. The battery supplied is great and lasts quite a long time. I like the brushless motor and the multiple speeds could be useful. The multiple cutting diameters is OK but not a game changer. The Easy Load Trimmer Head, on the other hand is. It makes replacing string very fast and very easy. There is some vibration with the Milwaukee trimmer that probably wouldn’t be a problem unless used for many hours on end.

        This review is for Milwaukee Tool string trimmer kit, Porduct 2828-21. The kit includes brushless string trimmer, high output 6.0AH, M18, XC6.0 lithium-ion battery and M12 & M18 battery charger. Some assembly is required, it easily done following the well-written assembly instructions. The supplied battery was about 25% charged when delivered. It took about 1 hour, 40 minutes to charge it fully. This tool is truly heavy-duty, it having two variable speed ranges. The string included is very, very tough, dispensing by head bump. The overall tool length is about 74 inches with the battery installed. Overall weight with the battery is 11-1/2 pounds. The trimmer guard is arranged so that the string cutter is adjustable for 14 and 16 inch cutting diameters. I tried this tool in the dead of very cold and snowy conditions, using it to mow down tall dead and tough dried weeds toward the rear of my 1 acre lot, something I would not have attempted with the other much less powerful battery-operated string trimmer I own. This tool mowed the tough weeds down above the snowline without a hitch. This tool is well-balanced. It would be helpful if it included a shoulder strap, something that I will purchase and install as spring approaches. The tool, including the battery has a long 3-year warranty.

        This Milwaukee cordless string trimmer is fantastic. I just love it. I have been hesitant about getting another electric trimmer for awhile. This one does all that is expected from a string trimmer. It cuts great on a lawn as well as the rougher high weeds without bogging down. The battery charges in about an hour and has more than enough juice to trim 2 yards. It is well balanced and is weighted right for this older guy. There are 2 speeds, I prefer the low speed for better control on the normal areas. The high speed works great in chopping the the high stuff. Overall this is a great trimmer.

        As I have been trying to ‘green’ for years now, why not a battery weed eater? Particularly, since I have used Milwaukee M-18 tools for over a decade now, and have never had to replace any of the various batteries that I have used. They seem to last forever. Therefore, when I saw that Milwaukee had a M-18 version, the decision was simple. It comes complete with the weed eater, an M-18 charger, and a 6ah battery. It assembles very easily, with the necessary #30 Torx wrench included, and all necessary nuts, bolts, and screws. After completing the charging, I did my front and back yard with no problem, and the battery was only halfway down. Not bad. It has two speeds HI/LO and a variable speed, depending on how much you depress the trigger. The line advances with a simple ‘bump’ on the grass, and comes out quickly. When time for new line, the instructions specify the correct length for whichever line you choose, the standards being .080 and .095. I have not yet replaced the line, but the instructions are very straight forward, and I have done a ‘practice run’ on the spindle, which easily detaches and attaches back. Works great and the ‘on demand’ variable speed is a real battery saver.
