            Best trimmer for the money!!
            I’ve used a lot of trimmers over the years. This blows every single one out of the water. I can do my entire front lot on half a battery. Well worth the cost and the adaptability is an even bigger plus!!

            Milwaukee string trimmer is solid.
            I prefer the battery operated trimmers for easy stop and go. Milwaukee m18 trimmer easily takes the cake compared to other battery powered competitors with similar voltage. A huge plus is being able to use the batteries on other tools. I would recommend for both professional and DIY application.

            Need to work on quality control
            I bought this, and the trimmer head squealed really bad right out of the box. I brought it back for exchange and the 2nd one did the same thing! Returned it and tried 2 other ones in store before finding one that was smooth and quiet like it should be. My friend dealt with the same issue and took him 2 tries for a good one. Quality control was lacking on this product.

            M18 string trimmer, melted terminal.
            I love the trimmer itself, but it has melted my battery negative terminal, its melted on the trimmer and battery terminal. Other than that flaw the trimmer works wonders and i love the veriable speed, as well as the smooth trimmer feed.

            Battery and tool damage if used under heavy load
            I use this trimmer to trim grass and weeds. The problem with this trimmer is that if you cut high or dense grass and weeds for 5 minutes or so the battery overheats and it shuts off. This is actually expected behavior and a safety feature. However, the contacts for the battery get extremely hot and the plastic around the contacts in both the battery and the tool have melted. This has occurred with two batteries that I have used with it. Last time I used it the battery housing melted to the point where I needed a pry bar to remove it because the melted plastic on the battery hit the tool body and caused it to jam. This is very disappointing from Milwaukee since according to their product description this is designed for use by professional landscapers. I doubt this type of problem would be tolerated by anyone who uses this tool to make a living. This is a poor design, materials capable of tolerating much higher heat should have been specified around the battery contact area for both the battery and tool.

              Trimmer Battery Note
              I found this trimmer excellent in most aspects but it melted one of the battery terminals. Both, the trimmer and battery, were still functional but there were some melted material deposited in the trimmer terminal that didn't allow the battery to fit well. I hope a solution is found soon.
