Can I use a Milwaukee 12 amp battery that I get with another tool the super sawall on this vacume

Asked by Rich October 30, 2018

Answers

I am pretty sure he is talking about the 12 amp hour M18, 18V battery and not a 12V battery. Yes, it will fit this tool just fine as I have the Super Sawzall and Chainsaw as well and each came with these larger 12.0AH 18V batteries. The 12AH battery will bring you a tad more power and mostly longer run time by another 33% or so. It will stick out the rear a little farther and weigh a tad more if that is a concern for you as this might impact the balance. There are a few tools where the larger battery WILL NOT FIT but Milwaukee will gladly upgrade the tool to accommodate the larger battery for FREE with free shipping to and from their repair center. I have only run into this once with a large work light. They simply added a taller base to the unit with a larger battery opening as the battery is a tad taller.

How many times can you recharge this battery. Can't find this spec anywhere.

You can hold down the button on the battery till it starts to flash and there is a code that tell you how many cycle that battery has gone through. The code i looked it up but that was a long time ago and cant remember where.

BEWARE - Both Home Depot and Milwaukee sites list this as coming with High Output XC 8.0 Ah battery, but they are currently ( Aug 2020 ) shipping with HD 9.0 Ah battery. If your goal was to get another High Output battery to use with your other large Milwaukee tools ( Table / Miter Saws ), you will not get one. Also, the HD 9.0 battery gains no reduction in charging time from a Super Charger like the High Output 8.0 does. However, the blower is awesome. Low and High speed settings. Variable speed trigger for blowing out garden beds between plantings. Light weight and easy to use. I fully endorse the tool. Buy in person. Check box descriptions. Get the right combination of tool and battery for your needs.

Got the weed eater blower combo tools only for fathers day. Bought an 8ah battery with fast charger for them. My yard is approx 1/3 acre. Weed ate and blew off whole yard on one charge. No over heats that others have reviewed. Power to spare on both tools. Only complaint is I have to get used to weed eater, edging with it is difficult and winding the string is a pain bc there is no "keeper" to hold lines while you push it into the tool. Bump feed works great.

First, in regard to this review this was a purchase for my brother who is deep into the Milwaukee 18volt platform. I myself use it though. Second, This purchase was made when this blower/battery combo was on sale. That certainly made it easier to select 5 stars in the value section. This blower like all Milwaukee tools is well made and balanced. First let's talk about the battery. The battery in the kit was a 5.0, however this blower will work with other sizes of Milwaukee 18 volt batteries. With that said... On the high setting anything under a 5.0 really gets chewed up fast. The reason for this is the way the blower works. It's not like an impact or saw where it's really most or at least half off when it use. For example using a driver you use it on say one deck screw, pause using it and grab another screw and start again and maybe move between joint locations. A blower is mostly always on. Sometimes you stop and walk back to get behind the other side of a pile of debris and start again but then it may be on for quite awhile. This is why little pancake air compressors are great for roofing and shooting nails but can't pump up a large flat tire that well. There just isn't much reverse. A 5.0 battery seems to provide over twice the run time of a fully charged 3.0. If you are using this blower to clean up a garage or something the 3.0 is just fine. If it's a larger shop or outdoor cleanups you'll want a 5.0 at least. As far as outdoor use. This blower did clean up wet leaves from a rock bed as well as one could hope. It also blows them through the grass though not as well as dry leaves. If you have a lot of leaves in the fall be prepared to switch out even 5.0 and larger batteries. This isn't uncommon in cordless blowers. As far as power outdoors its OK. It's not going to wow you. It will do the job and it's probably more powerful than some other cordless blowers and a couple gas ones. The thing is though this is not at all a replacement for a backpack blower or larger handheld gas blower when used outdoors. Where this really shines is convenience. Sure a gas blower might start in 2 pulls after hitting the choke and primer bulb 5 times but this blower goes as soon as hitting the trigger. Which does have a "on" lock btw. This blower is mostly used to clean up a large shop where cars, tractors, atvs are stored and repaired. You can use it to blow out the inside of a side by side UTV quickly. Then blow all the dirt, misc stones, etc on shop floor right back outside. It also is used to blow off the floor and cab of a tractor and dust off a planter and large mower. It's also so easy to use for blowing off sidewalks and patios especially. After lawn trimming and edging this blower is the go to for cleaning up all those grass clippings to complete a manicured look. Also, it can be used to clear light snow dustings. Lastly, as far as sound I'd describe it as a bit whiny but not offensive. Certainly quieter than a gas blower if you live in a residential area known for quiet streets. Any use in a shop would be affected be said shop size and surroundings. All in all this blower and battery combo are a great addition to any garage. While it won't replace a professional level blower it does perform well and is just too convenient not to find other uses for it the longer one has it.

So far, its been a great blower. Leftover dead wet grass, small tree limbs, leaves and just about anything in my yard space. I use a XC8.0 battery, which is paired nicely. PROS: IT BLOWS, In a positive way. CONS: As you would think, it drinks batteries for breakfast. I need Milwaukee to sponsor me with a 12.0 to see what kind of run time I can get out of this momster!
