Questions & Answers

How does this compare to a gas trimmer?

How does this compare to a gas trimmer?
Asked by: Diyguy
This was my best decision to replace my orange and white 2 cycle hedge trimmer. Lighter weight, instant full power with the squeeze of the trigger. Cut through everything and more than the gas model.

Asked by: alex
No it does not, however maintaining a level cut is not difficult especially after practicing for year trimming the hedges.

Customer Reviews

M18 FUEL 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Hedge Trimmer (Tool-Only) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 412.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Hedge Trimmer This trimmer is professional quality and very well built in all aspects. Last time I used a hedge trimmer it was a corded model and there was a noticeable torque twist when the motor was fired up. This tool does not suffer that and the brushless motor delivers instant smooth power. The twin safety switch levers are well placed and easy to use with the trigger. My first impression was that it was a bit too heavy to be hoisting in the air but in use the weight is nothing but a good balance and not at all tiring. It is not too noisy in use and the double sided 24 inch blade cuts cleanly left or right and up or down. I cut several thicker branches from a fir tree and the ¾ inch cutting claim is valid. The blade cover, like the rest of the plastic parts is heavy duty and designed to be robust and last a long, long time. The Red Lithium High Demand battery claims up to two hours use on one charge and the battery comes with the rapid charger.

Milwaukee keeps on introducing us to what life is like when things go right....this is yet another example of why I began switching to Milwaukee tools ten years ago. I bought this hedge trimmer because of the portability and reliability that I have come to expect from Milwaukee and again I am not disappointed with my purchase. I have four, fifty foot rows of hedges that I maintain at just over five feet high and this trimmer works flawlessly. with the length I could reach out and do the trimming from one side. With the multi position handle the weight of the unit never felt heavy or awkward. The performance was great trimming off everything that my old corded model did and more. I ran a 9.0 Ah battery while trimming and got everything done without even using half the juice from the battery. NO more cords for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent tool My old hedge trimmer is a Tanaka gas model it is heavier and has a shorter bar. The m18 2726-20HD runs well I am getting about an hour run time, no cancer causing fumes and quieter operation. By the time my second battery is run down the first is recharged WOW! The only thing I wish it had is a grease zerk. I'm happy :)

Add a 12 ah battery and its even heavier. But perfectly balanced. Its easy to use and not tiriing, its weight works to your advantage. Its a fine tool. Blade is precision machined and its got plenty of power. This thing can cut.it will make quick work of any trim job you encounter. It cuts efficiently and cleanly up to 3/4”. Best of all it doesnt have a cord to lug around so its easy to prep it for minor and quick touch up trim jobs. Its actually fun to use. How often does a tool do that?

I have two bushes next to my garage and finally they look nice. I also trimmed the chain link fence in the back yard and now it looks nice too. I bought this because I already have two M18 tools, a cordless drill and leaf blower and its a nice addition. Milwaukee is and has been my go to brand for many years, I trust Milwaukee's quality. When my other brand weed wacker gives out I'll buy a Milwaukee M18 too. You pay more but you get more and this is not an over priced fluff brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Battery powered has come a long way I run a small lawncare business and was hesitant to take the plunge on battery powered tools on anything bigger than a leaf blower. Since I had batteries for it already from leaf blower and drill, I thought this hedge trimmer would be a good item to get my feet wet with. After 2 weeks I have completely changed my mind about battery operated stuff. Dollar for Dollar, this is the best investment on my truck to date. Pull it out, stick a battery in, and you are making money. No hard starts, no warm up, no smoke, just finished work and move on to the next one. The hedges in my own backyard had gotten somewhat out of control (cobbler's children often go barefoot), and this took what was previously a 45 minute job into 15. Battery life is fantastic. I have yet to run a battery dead (either 6.0 or 9.0), although I haven't spent a day doing only hedges with it. I'm not sure what its rated for, but one thing I will mention is that you don't have it running 100% of the time like a gas hedge trimmer. You pull the trigger and its going, you let up and it stops. So even it its only going to run "for an hour", that whole hour is you cutting and not idle time. It is also no slouch when it comes to actually performing. Blades are sharp out of the box and seem to be holding up. My one complaint here is that the bar is double sided, in my experience quality hedge trimmers use a single sided bar of a higher quality steel. This has not been an issue however, and I am quickly getting used to being able to cut both ways.

Not sure of the problem. Tried to call support. They called back a day later and their system hung up on me. HD handled the return at the store instantly. I ordered a replacement and I expect this to be the best hedge trimmer I could hope for. Will update review when I get a non-defective tool. But don't bother with their support.

We’ve had a hard time keeping our redwood tree volunteers at bay and this thing cut through them like butter! So happy with this purchase. We own a lot of Milwaukee battery operated tools and all meet or exceed our expectation
